The Quest for Quick
May 20, 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
As the adoption of plug-in vehicles continues to accelerate, so does the race to reduce recharging time. Quick charge technologies are advancing – well – quickly and these companies are exploring the most efficient ways to transfer electricity, increase EV range by strategic placement, and manage this hefty load to the grid.
