Response to last year's Summit was overwhelmingly positive, with 100% of surveyed attendees requesting a follow-up EV Summit in 2016. The 2015 EV Summit featured presentations from 18 speakers on topics that included transportation planning, EV and grid technology and fleet management.
This year's Summit will focus on updates to the technologies, planning and policies needed to accelerate the deployment of electric vehicle transportation. Topics include automated and connected EVs, transportation policy and planning, fleet management, workplace charging and the life-cycle assessment of EV vehicles. Panel discussions, two technical workshops, lab tours and a vehicle display are also planned for the Summit.

EVTC is a U.S. DOT funded research facility located at the University of Central Florida's Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC).
