Drive Oregon cites “dramatic change’ in the EV market. “Sales continue their strong growth with electric vehicle registrations up by 69% last year alone.

“With 24 models available and another 20 expected by 2016, nearly every automaker will soon offer at least one electric model.”

DriveOregon-logoSupportive ‘Ecosystem’ Needed

But Drive Oregon cautions that “Widespread electric vehicle adoption requires a supportive ‘ecosystem’ of stakeholders, from utilities and local governments to vehicle OEMs, charging providers, interest groups, and drivers.”

The organization promises to bring “all of these stakeholders together in a highly interactive format to explore emerging trends, share best practices, and map the road ahead.”

On the EV Roadmap 8 agenda:

  • Maximizing the Economic Benefits of Electric Vehicles
  • Here Come the Long Range EVs!
  • How will Electric Vehicles Pay for Roads?

Norway parliamentarian and former deputy mayor of Oslo Ola Elvestuen is a scheduled keynote speaker, as is IDTechEx founder and chairman Peter Harrop.

Portland General Electric is presenting sponsor.
