Join the Transportation Electrification Interest Group's inaugural HOT TOPIC Conversation and learn what this new Interest Group is all about!

For this first conversation, Joyce Bodoh, Director of Energy Solutions and Clean Energy at Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC), will present REC's survey results and load data on electric vehicles from its Virginia service area. She will also discuss REC's roadmap on transportation electrification, and will share tips on member engagement.

The group co-chairs will then host a discussion to share ideas, thoughts, and suggestions around topical and relevant issues for PLMA to explore throughout 2021. Join us for this first look at electric transportation and its role in demand response and load management.

About the Electric Transportation Interest Group

The PLMA Electric Transportation Interest Group will address the growing popularity of electric transportation across the U.S. and beyond, and its impacts on demand response, grid reliability, and beneficial electrification. Attendees can expect to develop a deeper understanding of ET trends, share best practices, and learn more about how utilities and vendors can work together to advance this important new opportunity. PLMA member practitioners will gain knowledge from industry experts as they discuss electric transportation, plus the infrastructure and data needs of light-duty, heavy-duty, and electric fleets.
