NBI Webinar: Using Electric Vehicles to Enhance Building Resilience

July 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

As vehicles rapidly electrify to meet decarbonization goals, there’s an opportunity for increased building resilience within our communities. Electric vehicles are essentially “batteries on wheels,” and using emerging electric vehicle (EV) charger technologies, the power stored within vehicle batteries can be accessed to provide backup energy to buildings during significant grid, weather, fire, or seismic events.

This webinar will look at early demonstration projects that are pairing transit and school buses with solar energy and battery storage to form functioning microgrids that can provide emergency services to communities when needed. We’ll hear from panelists on the front lines working to create these microgrids and understand the challenges and lessons learned from some of the first pilot projects in the country.

Join us on July 10th as we look at the exciting potential for vehicles to power buildings in an emergency.
