The third EVs@Scale Lab Consortium Semi-Annual Stakeholder Meeting was hosted Sept. 27-28, 2023 at Argonne National Laboratory’s campus in Lemont, Illinois. The meeting convened stakeholders across government, academia, and industry to identify research and development (R&D) opportunities to accelerate at-scale electric vehicle (EV) grid integration and enabling technologies.
Discussions covered topics in vehicle grid integration and smart charge management, high-power charging, wireless charging, cyber-physical security, and codes and standards. There were two panel discussions which examined smart charge management and vehicle grid integration as well as codes and standards.
The objectives of this meeting were to:
- Present perspectives, priorities, and insights from key stakeholders in the electric vehicle industry and senior representatives from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and national laboratories on near- and long-term R&D priorities
- Assess the status, challenges, technology gaps, and prospective R&D collaborations to electric vehicle integration with the grid at-scale
- Identify opportunities to refine Consortium research areas and support common understanding and direction across the Consortium
