Electric Vehicle Technologies Workshop Announced

Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), in partnership with Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), presents an Electric Vehicle Technologies Workshop. The Workshop is intended for professionals, consultants and academics in the utility, transportation and energy fields and will take place on Tuesday, April 22 through Wednesday, April 23, 2014, from 9 am – 5 pm at Argonne National Laboratory.

Electric vehicle technology is a game-changing venture which can provide significant benefits to our economy, environment, and energy security, and upend traditional means of transportation as we are familiar with. However, this transformation will require practical and innovative solutions to overcome technology, market, and infrastructure challenges. The Argonne National Laboratory’s world leading transportation research and development program is at the forefront of delivering these solutions. The Workshop, which is sponsored by the Robert W. Galvin Center for Electricity Innovation at IIT, and held at Argonne National Laboratory. will provide a timely introduction to what, when, and how of transportation electrification.

You are encouraged to attend this timely event, participate in the Workshop deliberations, and visit the Argonne’s transportation research facilities.

Learning Objectives:

. Fundamentals of electric vehicles

. State of the art and emerging electric vehicle and battery technologies

. Electric vehicle marketplace

. Costs, benefits and downsides for transportation electrification

. Interconnectivity of electric vehicles with the electric grid

. Research, development and deployment challenges for electric vehicle and battery technologies

Deadline registration is April 14, 2014. For more information and to register, visit the event website.
