Thank you Joe Redfield
A big thank you to Joe Redfield of Southwestern Research Institute for his informative presentation on the technology of electric vehicles and the changes needed in the network to support plug-in versions. His topic drew a recent attendance record and time ran out before support plug-in versions. His topic drew a recent attendance record and time ran out before all our questions could be answered. But the answer to his title questions " Transportation Energy from the Grid - Is it Real? was an obvious yes. We appreciate Joe taking the time to help us learn the technology behind the hype.

Continuing Education Certificates
You may pick up your CE certificates for IEEE meetings at the meeting.
