The Business of Plugging In 2011 opens today, focuses on widespread adoption of PEVs with Ride and Drive

The Business of Plugging In 2011, a Plug-in Electric Vehicle Conference will open at the Hyatt Regency in Dearborn, Michigan and runs from October 11 - 13, uniting automotive, utility and new technology thought-leaders with policy makers, financiers and researchers as they focus on widespread adoption of plug-in electric vehicles (PEV). [See updates from Torque News via here and Twitter, especially Ride and Drive report.]

See Ride and Drive Update at bottom.

The Business of Plugging In (BPI) is an event international in scope and enterprising in nature. From the role of big box stores like Best Buy to Portland’s electric avenue, speakers at this year’s conference will focus on the long-term growth and widespread consumer adoption of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs).

For the record, BPI 2011 speakers are the movers and doers making the business of plugging-in a reality.

Michigan has certainly been a busy place for this writer the past two months. It started in mid-summer with the Detroit 2.011 AutoBeat Insider Conference in Birmingham, then the MBS 2011 in Traverse City; followed by the DEER 2011 conference at the Hyatt at Detroit‘s Renaissance Center, and now the BPI 2011.

Point is, this reporter will be on hand to cover the event, take a few photos, record perhaps a few videos and interviews.

I will especially tweet form the floor any breaking news. So, be sure to follow me on Twitter via @AuthorFranks or @torquenewsauto.

If the conference does the right thing and provides WiFi (some like DEER didn‘t), I will update this article at

Hope to see you there, but at least visit Torque News for updates.
