Overview | Registration | Schedule | Speakers

Join us on May 6th for ACEEE's first Forum on Connected and Automated Vehicles: Energy Impacts (CAVs) event.


CAVs are capturing the attention and imagination of technologists, futurists, urbanists, and automakers. Their rapid development is driven by the prospect of safety, mobility, and convenience benefits.

CAV adoption could affect transportation energy use as well, and policy choices will influence the size—even the direction— of that impact. At this unique one-day event, attendees will identify the drivers of the energy impacts and explore CAV policy options to improve the energy efficiency and sustainability of transportation.

Likely participants: Vehicle manufacturers and suppliers, software and telecoms companies, transportation network companies, federal, state and local government representatives, urban and transportation planners, researchers, and NGOs.

For additional information, please contact Eric Junga.



Register now at the rate of $115.



Topics for discussion will include:

  • State of CAV technology, implementation prospects, and energy impacts
  • Role of CAVs in urban transportation systems
  • Applications to heavy-duty vehicles and goods movement
  • Opportunities to promote energy savings and environmental benefits
