Then Stay for the Summit on Optimizing the Grid

Immediately after the 2020 Annual Members Meeting, you can stay for our summit, Optimizing the Grid for Transportation Electrification from 1-5pm at the Altabira City Tavern. Get into the discussion as experts and regional practitioners explore emerging best practices to prepare our regional grid not just only electrified transportation but for beneficial electrification overall.

This Summit takes place immediately after EVS33, just down the street. We’ll build on the discussions about the grid-to-vehicle (G2V) dynamic started at EVS33.

Party With Grid Forward on Our 10-Year Anniversary

The excitement is just getting started. Members, alumni and guests are invited to our evening celebration, Fast Forward in the 2020s from 5-8pm. We’ll kick off Grid Forward’s 10-year anniversary party by briefly looking back at our eventful history, award some key individuals and organizations for their leadership toward grid modernization, and then consider what the 2020s may bring to our regional electrical grid. Then the party kicks into high gear 6pm when we invite you to enjoy some music, relax, socialize and sample a tasty array of hors d’oeuvres, local wines and craft beers.

To attend the Annual Meeting, the Optiming the Grid Summit, the Fast Forward in the 2020s Bash (or all three!), visit our registration page here.

Please be advised that Grid Forward is monitoring the COVID-19 crisis closely and will update our member community about potential changes to our June event as we know more.
