The Battery Electric Vehicle Meets the Clean Energy Challenge

Presented by Ron Miller

$45 Member | $90 Non-member | $10 SME Student Member

The de-carbonization of our modern global society is moving forward at a rapid pace, with increased renewable energy supplies and the replacement of internal combustion engines (ICE) with battery electric vehicles (BEV). The BEV market will be driven by: 1) BEV power demand, 2) capacity planning for generation and grid improvements, 3) market leader advantages, 4) key minerals required and their location, and supply chain constraints, and 5) the advantages for one country to lead BEVs development. Identifying the what, why, and how of this dynamic changeover will be key for business leaders as they anticipate, understand, and exploit to improve their business during the future acceleration toward BEVs.

Ron Miller is an energy industry expert creating value by analyzing assets, markets, technologies, and power usage to identify, monetize, and implement profitable energy and de-carbonization projects. He is a Professional Engineer/MBA/Certified Energy Manager/Renewable Energy Professional experienced in developing and leading global energy projects in the renewable energy, conventional power, and fuels industries, before founding Reliant Energy Solutions LLC. His global energy consultancy provides analysis for energy supply and demand, energy reliability, feasibility, fuel and energy efficiency, and de-carbonization. He has led energy project development at ExxonMobil, Xcel Energy, AECOM, Rio Tinto, and Newmont Corporation. Ron holds a BS in Civil Engineering from Virginia Tech and an MBA in Finance from the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia.
