EV Site Assessment Training is a virtual training series hosted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory that is designed to provide fleet managers and coordinators with the skills and knowledge to become subject matter experts in electric vehicle implementation. This four-part training serves as an introduction to electric vehicle technology and considerations for electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) installation. Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will be able to select the best electric vehicles (EVs) for their fleets, as well as plan and install the necessary EVSE to serve the needs of these new vehicles. This webinar will focus on planning and designing an EVSE installation.

- Understand how to perform basic EV site assessments;
- Be able to determine vehicle needs;
- Be able to determine necessary EVSE numbers and types;
- Be able to assess necessary equipment upgrades;
- Know how to read electrical service equipment;
- Be able to minimize costs; and
- Be able to plan for future expansion.
