V2G Business, Policy & Technology Forum

October 17, 2023 - October 19, 2023


Wood MacKensie predicts that EV infrastructure investment will take over from solar as the largest DER market by 2025.* And within this market, a recent study by EPRI has determined that vehicle-to-grid charging (V2G) can generate over $670 million to $1 billion per year in California ratepayer benefits in 2030 — significantly more than V1G.**

The industry is in the early stages of realizing the potential of V2G: significant challenges include standards harmonization, identifying use cases and business models, the complexity of V2G versus other DERs, competing jurisdictions and more. Working through these issues and enabling utilities, automakers, charging network operators and others to achieve the V2G promise is of keen interest.

The 2nd edition of the V2G Business, Policy & Technology Forum, October 17-19, 2023 in Detroit convenes top industry players, working groups, utility professionals and others who are focused on the successful development and implementation of V2G in the United States.

Building on the success of the first meeting held in February 2023 in Los Angeles, this Forum offers a neutral venue in which different V2G stakeholders can come together to work on accelerating V2G standardization and adoption in the US. The goal is to examine obstacles and challenges to effectively achieving the potential of V2G, and to identify appropriate solutions and implementation success strategies for grid operators and other stakeholders across market verticals. If V2G is important to the future of your organization, don’t miss this opportunity to shape the future — register today and join the proceedings.

Topics to be Addressed Include:

  • Accelerating V2G in the emerging V1G charging standardization regime
