TiE Energy - Electric Avenue: EVs Charge into $200B Market!
The electrification of the automobile has given us some new vocabulary: plug-ins, hybrids, charging stations, etc. This event will look at the new product announcements in the EV (electric vehicle) space, along with the global trends and opportunities. The EV market is nascent, but many people are predicting substantial growth as the transition to electric accelerates. Commerce Department data shows that, based on annualized figures from the first quarter of 2011, new-car spending in the US totaled $206 billion, or 1.3 percent of the gross domestic product. The total auto industry including used car sales, after-market sales, and service is many times larger.
