Forum to Examine Key Challenges and Opportunities of Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) Charging in the U.S

LOS ANGELES - Feb. 8, 2023 - PRLog -- To help the industry achieve the full potential of Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G), the first annual V2G Business, Policy & Technology Forum, February 28 - March 1, 2023 in Los Angeles will convene top industry players, working groups, utility professionals and others who are focused on the successful development and implementation of V2G in the United States.  Hosted by Southern California Edison, this is a Forum for V2G stakeholders to come together and work on accelerating V2G standardization and adoption.
