Plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) are projected to have a significant presence in the auto market by 2012. The expanded deployment of PEVs presents important opportunities for utilities, other power providers and energy storage companies. Many utilities and electricity providers around the country already have begun to prepare for these opportunities of serving this new, significant electricity load, as well as to plan for the challenges that that the additional load to charge these vehicles will present to the transmission and distribution systems. This session will explore the current and future activities that utilities and others are taking, and will need to take, to position themselves to address increased demand and infrastructure issues.
Topics will include:

Electric fleets have gained much attention as local governments
as well as private organizations look to promote sustainable
operations as well as decrease long-term operating costs. In addition
to financial savings, companies and agencies can benefit from
enhanced reputation as they pioneer the way to reduce dependence
on gas. Many questions remain however, regarding the planning and
development of fleet deployment. In looking to undertake the burden
of a high initial capital investment or easing the transition into full
fleet deployment, companies must understand various strategies
in achieving the optimal system or set of systems to allow fleet
operators to maintain their current productivity. This session will
discuss the current and future predications of integrating electric
fleet vehicles into the mainstream.

Tires do much more than just roll down the road while you drive.
They are expected to perform in all weather conditions, stop on a dime,
last for tens of thousands of miles and today are helping drivers go
farther between fill-ups. Learn about how breakthrough new materials
and advanced engineering has led to considerable fuel efficiency
improvements. During this session Goodyear’s VP of Global Product
Development, Joe Zekoski, will share his “Top 10” list of how EVs and
hybrids are changing the way tires are developed.
