As electric vehicles (EVs) become more prevalent on
U.S. roadways, understanding the impact of this change is critical.
This program will explore the regulatory landscape and how it varies
throughout the U.S. as well as provide opportunity for discussion of policies
and best practices that have arisen in response to the impact of EVs. We also will
look at the role utilities play in developing State policies, the effects an increasing
number of EVs may have on the electricity supply, and the roles of EV vendors and consumers.
