The Electrical Vehicle (EV) Champion Training Series is hosted by the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) and is designed to provide fleet managers and coordinators with the skills and knowledge to become subject matter experts in EV implementation. The second of this four-part training focuses on the importance of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) power requirements and electric utility infrastructure and serves as an introduction to selecting the best EVs for your fleet, and the planning and installation of the necessary EVSE.
Below is a list of all of the courses in this series:
- EV Champion Training 1: EV Technology and Financial Considerations;
- EV Champion Training 2: EVSE Power and Installation Requirements;
- EV Champion Training 3: Performing EV Site Assessments; and
- EV Champion Training 4: Advanced Site Operations.
Leidy Boyce, Research Engineer, National Renewable Energy Lab Read Bio
Leidy Boyce joined NREL in 2020 and works in vehicle technology integration office, she works closely with fleet vehicle data helping fleets implement electric vehicles and electric vehicle supply equipment to achieve fleet electrification goals. Prior to joining NREL, Leidy worked as a geoscientist in the oil and gas industry, evaluating oil and gas reserves from electrical, acoustic, and nuclear logging tools, supported field engineering operations, and assisted clients on establishing field development strategies.
Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to:
- Identify the application of electric vehicle supply equipment (AC vs DC, industry standards (SAE J1772 vs CHAdeMO), installation requirements);
- Recognize and apply power calculations (voltage, amps, and kilowatts, charging speeds, national electrical code requirements); and
- Identify utility service structure (overview of electricity distribution, review of key equipment).
