What’s said to be the world’s first Charging Infrastructure Expo will be held 13-15 November at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan alongside The Battery Show. The forum is for industry leaders and stakeholders to discuss opportunities and challenges in the charging infrastructure industry, as well proving a showcase for the latest battery technologies and electric vehicle charging technologies.
By 2017, it is estimated that $4.3 billion will be spent on electric vehicle charging equipment, which given almost non-existent EV sales in the U.S. seems somewhat optimistic.
“The initial challenge – one that will be addressed at Charging Infrastructure Expo – is for business owners, managers and fleet operators to understand what charging infrastructure solution best fits their needs,” said Adam Moore, exhibition director.
“As EVs and hybrids become common place on roadways across the globe, companies’ investment in charging infrastructure and advanced battery technology will continue to grow. The expansion of The Battery Show, with the addition of Charging Infrastructure Expo, growing from a 65,000 sq ft exhibition to 130,000 in only a year is demonstrative of this,” said Adam Moore, exhibition director.
