The Business of Plugging In


The Business of Plugging In, A Plug-In Electric Vehicle Conference is being held October 19-21, 2009 at the MotorCity Hotel and Conference Center in Detroit, Michigan.


Plug-in vehicles are emerging as an economically and socially promising alternative to current vehicle powertrain technology. Much still needs to be accomplished to bring these vehicles to the mass market. This conference is designed to foster a dialog among many different stakeholders to explore viable solutions.

The conference looks at the plug-in vehicle industry from a business perspective with the focus on policy, practice, consumers, and suppliers including the utility companies and infrastructure development.

The first day of the conference will focus on “The Electrification of the Vehicle: Supporting a National Strategy.” On Tuesday the focus shifts to “When We Build It, Will They Come?" There are also several plenary and breakout sessions focusing on the supplier, utility and battery manufacturing.
