IEEE, the world’s largest professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, today announced its participation at a series of worldwide events to promote industry insights that advance transportation electrification. Kicking off in Beijing on August 31 and continuing on to Vancouver, Portugal, Vienna, Dallas and ending in Florence on December 19, the IEEE Transportation Electrification Initiative will reach electric vehicle (EV) stakeholders at 12 different events around the globe.
“Vehicle electrification is gaining critical momentum in all major markets. As the first generation of products have been introduced, manufacturers are learning more and more about the true customer demands and standardization needs,” said Joachim Taiber, conferences committee chair for the IEEE Transportation Electrification Initiative. “Today, we see that EV—including hybrid vehicles—sales are continuously growing and provide consumers the option to drive emission-free on shorter distances and pushing the development of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). Our Transportation Electrification Initiative conference and event program is oriented towards identifying needs both for innovation and standardization within the EV ecosystem.”
As the EV community seeks insightful information and meaningful ways to make electrified transportation a reality, the IEEE Transportation Electrification Initiative and its experts will showcase thought-provoking presentations on industry-leading topics, including battery technologies, advanced charging, powertrains and connected vehicles. All of this will need to be integrated with the smart grid, the Internet of Things (IoT) and the intelligent highway as the industry moves to the next level of transportation.
“Our presence at 12 global events underscores IEEE’s promise to champion the electrified transportation systems of tomorrow and will connect the EV industry with IEEE standards and educational opportunities to spearhead the next generation of services and applications,” said Lee Stogner, chairman of the IEEE Transportation Electrification Initiative. “Our overall goal is to make transportation clean, efficient, connected and safe.”
