Planning for Electric Vehicle Infrastructure
August 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The objective of this session is to train GPA members in electric vehicle (EV) supply equipment and best practices for planning and promoting EV infrastructure in public spaces and the built environment.
The increasing integration of electric vehicles (EVs) into our society brings opportunities and challenges for the power system. This training will provide an overview of EV supply equipment (EVSE) and best practices in incorporating EVSEs into codes, laws, and zoning ordinances. Join us in this training to:
- distinguish EV supply equipment and electrical service requirements
- examine best practices in expanding EV charging infrastructure via energy codes, stretch codes, zoning, and local laws nationwide through case studies
- understand the use cases / economics of fleet electrification
- gain familiarity with smart charging strategies, charging schedules specific to vehicle duty cycles, and vehicle to X (“V2X”) to help manage the load during peak times, and the use of EVs as power supplies to the grid during peak times or outages
- discuss pathways and next steps in planning for EVs in your county
This session offers 2 CM credits to AICP professionals.
Interested attendees, please complete this pre-training survey.
