Veloz Summit Series: Charging Our Way Forward to the 2035 Goal (building out Zero Emission Vehicle infrastructure)
Building out Zero Emission Vehicle infrastructure isn’t just about how much money is spent, but about spending those dollars strategically. We must invest in creating a robust sustainable market for EV charging and hydrogen refueling stations, which requires solving critical challenges. That’s why the Veloz Summit Series: Charging Our Way Forward to the 2035 Goal will bring together Veloz membership which includes public and private sector leaders in the ZEV infrastructure space to consider the unique and nuanced questions and forge innovative solutions to make electric for all a reality. Veloz members are free to attend, non-members $50.00. Join us.
If you are a member and need your complimentary link to register, or for any other attendee questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 503-226-2377.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: WHY ELECTRIC FOR ALL IS KEY TO ACHIEVING THE 2035 GOAL
As a nation we need to move faster if we are to mitigate the impact of climate change and air pollution. Electric is For All and Veloz members are at the apex of moving transportation electrification forward with educational campaigns like 40 Million Reasons to Go Electric. The public and private sector working together is key to innovation and to making successful strides toward a healthier planet.
ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE GRID
Charging Infrastructure requires multiple stakeholders engaged in working together to build out California’s and the nation’s charging stations. How can utilities, charging providers and engineering companies work together to develop solutions that are beneficial to moving the market forward rapidly?
JOBS! CHARGERS! AND MORE – EXPANDING CHARGING AND HOW COMMUNITIES BENEFIT
As the ZEV market continues to grow and charging is built out to meet the needs of drivers, now is the time to make sure chargers are placed in priority populations and that this new technology creates jobs and economic value. Hear from public policy members, nonprofits and new companies focused on charging infrastructure, workforce and equity.
ITS NOT ALL ABOUT DRIVING FAST: AUTOMAKERS, CHARGING AND HYDROGEN
What is the role of automakers in creating ZEV infrastructure? What steps are some of our automaker members taking to ensure that charging and/or hydrogen refueling is available and accessible to EV car buyers? Hear from major automakers on their plans for ZEV infrastructure expansion.
Charging everywhere is the goal! How will the nation’s charging providers and utilities create the right kind of charging networks for the demand at work, at home or for anyone on the go? Join Veloz charging provider members and utilities to discuss expansion efforts and how home charging acceleration may help EV adoption.
GET THE BIG TRUCKS ON THE ELECTRIC ROAD
Fleet charging is an opportunity all on its own. What are utilities, charging providers and other organizations doing to accelerate fleet charging and get more medium -and heavy – duty vehicles on the road?
