CERV - Conference on Electric Roads & Vehicles

February 16-17, 2012 · Newpark Resort & Hotel, Park City, UT USA

CERV-LogoCERV focuses on a bold, new approach to transportation that integrates energy, vehicle, and highway infrastructures into a more flexible and convenient network of electric roads and vehicles. Electricity has a unique ability to transform travel but must extend beyond charging batteries in parked vehicles to technologies that deliver energy wirelessly, on demand, in real time, and to both stationary and moving vehicles.

The Conference on Electric Roads & Vehicles (CERV) focuses on a bold, new approach to surface transportation that integrates energy, vehicle, and highway infrastructures into a more flexible and convenient network of electric roads and vehicles. While electricity has a unique ability to transform travel, electric transportation must extend beyond charging batteries in parked vehicles if its full potential is to be utilized.

Technologies that deliver energy wirelessly, on demand, in real time, and to both stationary and moving vehicles must be included. Unlike today’s transportation system, which is fueled almost exclusively by oil, a transportation system based on electric roads and vehicles will:

  • Enable robust competition among several primary energy sources
  • Reduce vehicle energy consumption
  • Eliminate the range anxiety associated with electric vehicles
  • Eliminate mobile-source emissions

CERV will provide scientists, engineers, managers, policy-makers, investors, and other interested private sector stakeholders with a forum where they can present, discuss, and learn. The two day program will include an executive panel discussion, keynote speakers, and presentations in areas such as:

  • Wireless Power Transfer & Vehicle Integration
  • Broader Deployment Considerations
  • Codes & Standards
