Join Wayne Killen, Director of Charging Infrastructure Planning & Business Development at Electrify America for an interview and Q&A about lessons learned from deploying a nationwide DC fast charging network, and the key to unlocking U.S. electric vehicle (EV) sales growth.
This discussion will explore the future of the EV charging industry in America and the infrastructure development necessary to support a growing list of EVs coming to market. What are the lessons learned over the last five years of becoming the largest DC fast charging public network in the U.S.? The conversation will highlight the important components of building a premium customer EV charging experience. It will also touch on a wide range of complex and sometimes unexpected challenges including slow governmental permitting processes, the existential threat of utility demand charges, and achieving CCS connector compatibility with new and legacy EVs from multiple automakers. Is America ready for an all-electric transportation system?
