There’s no doubt that the EV charging market is growing. In fact, the global market for EV supply equipment is projected to be worth more than $1 billion by 2020.

EV charging equipment (and associated installation costs) have also become more affordable than ever before, in large part due to new incentives from utilities and federal, state and local governments. In some areas, local utilities even offer free hardware and installation services for EV infrastructure.

Navigating the ins-and-outs of EV charging station selection, installation, and management can be a tricky business – especially when it comes to estimating return on investment, deciding whether to plug your station into a smart network or keep it non-networked, and understanding the different types of incentives that are available to you.

Join us for a free webcast on April 22 that will discuss these key themes and more, helping you to make the most of your EV charging station opportunities. You’ll hear from a range of industry experts, including speakers from General Electric, the U.S. Department of Energy, and EV Connect, Inc. Register for the webcast here.
