AABC Europe 2011 – AABTAM Symposium

Session 5:
Electric-Vehicle Technology and Infrastructure: Progress and Challenges

While the largest obstacle to the expansion of vehicle electrification clearly relates to the difficulty for battery technology to compete with the simple device it means to replace--the gasoline tank--there are other notable technological, commercial, and logistic issues. In this session, EV developers and related stakeholders will discuss plans to meet technological and commercial challenges for vehicle electrification, including cost, charging rate, and grid integration, as well as infrastructure, logistics, and the impact on the environment.
