Indium Corporation Set to Launch Second Season of EV InSIDER Live Webcast Series

March 29, 2023

Following a successful inaugural season which included six episodes and five high-profile guests from the EV industry, Indium Corporation's EV InSIDER Live webcast series is set to launch its second season on April 13. EV InSIDER Liveis co-hosted by Indium Corporation's global head of e-Mobility and infrastructure, Brian O'Leary, and Loren McDonald, EV consultant and CEO of EVAdoption

EV InSIDER Live is conducted in a candid and conversational format suitable for business executives, casual observers, and seasoned engineers alike. On each episode, O'Leary and McDonald are joined by a different high-profile guest from the EV industry. Season two will focus on three primary topic areas:

  • Reliability and customer experience: Recent studies have shown that EVs have more defects than internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles and EV chargers are suffering from unacceptable levels of down time and poor user experience. Guests and hosts will delve into the root causes of poor EV and charging hardware reliability and explore what steps the industry needs to take to turn things around.
  • Supply chain/scaling production: From chips and battery minerals for EVs to backlogs for DC fast chargers and the transformers and switchgear needed to power them—supply chain issues continue to wreak havoc with the EV and charging industries. The challenges and approaches to scaling production and minimizing parts shortages, reducing timelines, and increasing quality will be explored.
  • Battery storage and new technologies: Experts will tackle the synergy of EVs with battery storage systems and the challenges of an endless influx of new electronics, technologies, and software updates into the EV ecosystem.

"The enthusiastic reception we received from season one of EV InSIDER Live demonstrated the timely need for a forum like this to examine not only the rapidly evolving EV industry, but the larger e-Mobility landscape," said O'Leary. "Loren and I are looking forward to welcoming more EV game-changers as guests and investigating the hot button issues facing our industry together." 

Season two will kick off on April 13 at 11:30 a.m. EST with a session titled EV Fast Chargers: Can America Deploy Them Quick Enough? With dozens of new and increasingly compelling electric vehicle (EV) models with near or more than 300 miles of range coming to market, the biggest hurdle to mass adoption of EVs is a reliable and convenient charging infrastructure. 

O'Leary and McDonald will be joined by John Thomas, COO of Autel, a fast-growing EV charging hardware company. He will share his views and expertise from being on the frontlines of this race to help America build out both Level 2 and DC fast-charging infrastructure. The conversation will focus on three core topic areas: the current state of the industry, the ability of charging infrastructure to meet demand, and the future of EV charging.
