IEEE Charges the Road to Electrified Transport at Series of International Conferences
PISCATAWAY, N.J. --(Business Wire)--
IEEE (News - Alert), 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 eed 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
