BluWave-ai Summit: Grid Innovations at the Crossroads of AI and EV

April 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Hosted in Partnership with Invest Ottawa, BluWave-ai is thrilled to present: Grid Innovations at the Crossroads of AI and EV.

In this installment of the Global Energy Transition Summit series, hosted by BluWave-ai, in partnership with Invest Ottawa, this panel will bring together inspiring leaders who will look at the role of AI in enabling a greater number of electric vehicles (EV) in the electricity grid.

Register your free attendance and join us at Bayview Yards or via livestream. Attendees who register via Eventbrite will receive a special YouTube link prior to the event.

The Problem: The surge in the adoption of EVs marks a pivotal shift in the global automotive industry. The incredible growth trajectory of EVs has greatly outpaced initial forecasts. This momentum is largely attributed to the availability of affordably priced long-range EV models, an awareness of their environmental advantages, and proactive governmental policies. Larger numbers of electric vehicles entering the market every year have caused great concern among electric power grid operators. Many operators are worried that the grid will be unable to handle all of the additional power needed for EV charging.

The Solution: Our panel of grid operators, AI experts, and EV market leaders will share our insights into projects that will be launched to enable this transition to wider EV adoption, including the BluWave-ai EV Everywhere software system. This panel will explore the benefits for EV users, utilities, and system operators.
