description

Scott Elrod, PARC Vice President and Director of the Hardware Systems Laboratory will present an overview of PARC's CleanTech activities.

Special speaker The Honorable George Shultz, Former US Secretary of State, will address national security implications of relying on (and the importance to reduce our reliance on) foreign oil, and the need to focus on innovation and technological progress as a means to reducing that threat.

Mr. Shultz' presentation will be followed by "Electric Vehicles in the Smart Grid" panel discussion.

Electric Vehicles (EVs) are coming to the Smart Grid is inevitable. Political support, technology maturity, and cost structures are converging to propel EVs into the mass market. Yet questions around the ability of the Smart Grid to reliably handle EVs remain unanswered. Furthermore, for EVs to be successful, wireless communications networks, technology and applications will be required.

Please join the WCA as we present a panel of EV and Smart Grid experts representing electric vehicle manufacturers, EV infrastructure visionaries, service providers, and other stakeholders to discuss the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead:

  • With EVs consuming double the energy per year of an average home and requiring charging infrastructure to be deployed, how will the growth of EVs impact the Smart Grid?
  • How will wireless networks and applications evolve to support the EV industry and the needs of their owners?
  • With the EV market expected to grow exponentially over the next few years, how do entrepreneurs take advantage of the opportunity? What enabling capabilities and conveniences can be delivered by wireless technologies?
