NDEQ Co-hosting Nebraska Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Conference on March 25

The Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) is partnering with the Nebraska Power Association (NPA) to co-host the Nebraska Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure Conference on March 25 in York. The conference is intended for those interested in installing public electric vehicle chargers and also for members of the public interested in the development of public electric vehicle charging in Nebraska.

Conference time and location: 10 a.m. March 25 – Holthus Convention Center, 3130 Holen Ave., York. (On-site registration and exhibits start at 9 a.m.)

The NDEQ has approximately $1.2 million available from the Volkswagen Trust to help fund the growth of public EV charging across Nebraska. There are several types of chargers available with different charging rates and a wide range of costs. This conference is an opportunity to learn about the technical and financial aspects of public EV charging and to provide input to the Department.

The Nebraska EV Infrastructure Conference will feature presentations from NDEQ, public power utilities, the Nebraska Department of Transportation, and the EV charging industry. These presentations will be followed by a facilitated discussion allowing attendees to provide their input on the development of public EV charging in Nebraska.

If you are interested in attending the event, or would like more information, please visit www.evnebraska.com. Registering for this event is free of charge; however, if you would like to participate in lunch, snacks and refreshments throughout the day, the fee will be $20 per person.
