This Webinar:

Electric vehicles (EVs) have the potential to reduce fossil fuel consumption and increase energy independence. If their charging is managed properly, they can also be a tool for fortifying the grid and increasing the integration of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. However there are many differences in the ownership experience between a traditional internal combustion vehicle and an EV. These range from maintenance requirements and daily refueling, to road tripping and group charging with other EV owners. This presentation will focus on the various issues associated with daily EV usage and EV ownership. This information is important to consider when planning for mass EV adoption. It is also important to convey to the public so they are more informed about life with an EV.
