Interest Group: Electric Transportation

Electric Transportation Interest Group

The PLMA Electric Transportation Interest Group addresses the growing popularity of electric transportation and its impacts on demand response, grid reliability, and beneficial electrification.

Participants in this Interest Group's activities will develop a deeper understanding and share best practices on how utilities and vendors can most effectively work together.

PLMA member practitioners will also gain knowledge from industry experts who will address trends related to both electric transportation and to the infrastructure and data needs for deploying light-duty, heavy-duty, and electric fleets.
