The adoption of EVs (electric vehicles) in the US has been moving at a blistering pace. Despite EVs being only 2% of the cars on the road, there are currently more than 2 million EVs in the USA, and sales have been increasing at a rate of over 8% a year. While most EV charging takes place at home and in the workplace, there’s a tremendous need for EV charging infrastructure to support those currently on the road and expected in the future.

As real estate owners and investors navigate the need for installing EV infrastructure, they face a dizzying array of technology and legal structures to put it all together. Our speakers will explore the key trends and challenges facing the installation and investment of EV infrastructure, with a particular focus on managing the risks and maximizing the opportunity.

Covered topics include:
• The potential impact of this new technology and the various EV infrastructure platforms as well as best practices
• Tax implications and availability of incentives and how to ensure compliance with relevant laws and regulations (ADA, Local Law 97, etc.)
• The current state of the market
• Unique challenges of implementing/installing EV infrastructure
• Location considerations & equipment types
