Charged: Electric Vehicle Symposium is a two-day conference that will take place Thursday, August 23rd – Friday August, 24th.

Charged 2012 comes at a pivotal point for electric vehicles as they go from early adoption stages to implementation phases and beyond! This two day conference will zero-in on what’s happening now and follow new developments on the horizon.

With a mix of keynote speakers, including Ray Lane of Kleiner Perkins, Charged 2012 will feature plenary sessions, best practices, and hands on workshops, designed to drive solutions that will enable mass adoption.

Check out some of our key topics and speakers!

o Ray Lane, managing partner at venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins, will speak onstage with Carl Guardino, President and CEO of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group. They will discuss the industry’s transition from “early adopter” to “fast follower.” From the venture capital perspective, what will it take to accomplish this transition and bring the market to scale?
