The Electric Vehicle (EV) Champion Training Series is hosted by the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) and designed to provide fleet managers and coordinators with the skills and knowledge to become subject matter experts in EV implementation. The fourth of this four-part training focuses on considerations for EV site assessments, optimally operating a fleet of EVs, and managing workplace charging.
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 joined NREL in 2020 and works as a research engineer in the vehicle technology integration office. Trained as a petroleum engineer and data scientist, her line of work has always involved data analytics to inform decision making. She works closely with fleet vehicle data helping fleets implement electric vehicles and electric vehicle supply equipment to achieve fleet electrification goals. She believes that data accessibility, quality, and sharing are among the most valuable assets an organization can cultivate to run a smart business and foster sustainable changes.
Upon completion of this training, attendees will be able to:
- Identify how to perform advanced EV site assessments (Identify managed charging solutions, Recognize how to integrate EVSE with facility energy loads, Identify how to perform cost-benefit analysis);
- Recognize how to optimally operate an EV fleet (Identify EV candidates with telematics and other tools, Identify how to plan for the long term); and
- Recognize how to manage a workplace charging program (Identify how to survey your workforce, Identify how to assess fees to employees, Identify best practices and case studies).
