What happens when two critical sectors of the society we have created come together? Whether we realize it yet or not, we are going to witness this phenomenon over the next ten years as the electricity and transportation sectors come together in a new way. It is up to us— professionals in the electric grid and automotive sectors — to develop the technology to ensure that the merging of these two sectors will result in each becoming stronger. This presentation will discuss trends in both the electrified transportation sector and the grid. Potential ways to enable a symbiotic evolution of these sectors will be presented.
