By 2015, a total of one million Electric Vehicles (EVs) will be available in the United States. This paradigm shift will require new infrastructure
and permitting standards, as well as the foundation
of new working relationships between utilities, cars, charging companies, and municipalities. Building codes, zoning codes and architectural standards must adapt to provide charging access
at home, work and around the city. The session provides an overview of EVs, charging technologies, and emerging issues such as fitting EVs into the city. The session will cover current information on codes, policies, smart grid integration, cost/benefits, and charging station best practices.
