A conversation between Daniel Yergin; Nick Akins, Chairman, President & CEO, American Electric Power; and Pedro Pizarro, President & Chief Executive Officer, Edison International, on power strategies for the 21st century
Widespread adoption of electric vehicles will depend on a vastly expanded electric charging infrastructure, capable of supporting EVs wherever they go, however long the trip. The Edison Electric Institute recently announced the formation of the National Electric Highway Coalition to provide fast-charging ports along all major U.S. transportation corridors by the end of 2023. More than 50 U.S. electric utilities have joined this collaborative effort. In this session two of the industry’s leading executives will discuss how the coalition came about, how it will accomplish its purpose, and what opportunities are provided by the electrification of American mobility on a national scale.
