Session No. 2D

Session Title: Electrification and Vehicle Electrification in the Transportation Industry

Session Description: Electric vehicles and their adoption has led to over seven million vehicles on the road in 2019. This is an increase of over 137 percent from 2018. The adoption of the other electric vehicles (buses, trucks, and fleet vehicles) will lead to some critical infrastructure questios. How will all of these vehicles be charged? How will the current electric grid need to be transformed to accommodate the future need? How are transit agencies preparing for this transformation?  And, what is a microgrid? Well, come to this session to hear from SEPTA, Momentum Dynamics, the leader in vehicle wireless charging, and AECOM experts who will discuss these topics and much more!

Moderator: Dan Corey, Vice-President & Deputy National ITS Program Leader, AECOM
