Ohio is a national leader on projects to develop infrastructure to enable increasingly sophisticated levels of connection and autonomy. The Midwest Green Transportation Forum and Expo virtual conference will feature three educational sessions on this topic. One is focused on levels of autonomy in freight transportation. The second concerns technologies in passenger vehicles. The third will address system-level and infrastructure upgrades for connectivity and efficiency.

Stakeholders Meet with Utility Regulators to Discuss Ohio Charging Infrastructure

On August 6, the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio held a virtual meeting of stakeholders to discuss electric vehicle charging across the state. Representatives of state agencies presented information on three major developments in electric vehicle charging from state government and took questions from attendees. As discussed in the meeting, falling battery prices from technological innovation and growing commercial viability of the electric medium- and heavy-duty segments will soon lead to an evolving and expanding electric vehicle landscape in the state. These and other factors are now leading to coordinated actions by several Ohio agencies to prepare the state’s electric vehicle chargin
