Electric car conference headed to Raleigh

The Triangle's reputation as a national hub for electric vehicle development just got a big jolt with today's announcement that this region has been selected to host a major industry conference next year.

The Electric Power Research Institute, the power industry research arm, picked the Raleigh Convention Center for its 2011 conference on the plug-in electric car.

It'll be the first time the confab is held outside California, the nation's undisputed leader in the electric car realm.

"The Research Triangle area is an appropriate location that is well-known as an incubator of entrepreneurship, innovation and thought-leadership," said Mark Duvall, director of Electric Transportation at EPRI, in a statement.
