ACC Complimentary On-Demand Lunch & Learn Webinar - Positive Thinking On EVs
This complimentary ACC Lunch & Learn webinar, generously sponsored by Walker Consultants, will provide an overview of planning for EV charging. The discussion will cover the following questions that must be addressed for parking owners and operators to make the wisest investments.
• Who are the users and how do their needs affect EV charging?
• How will EV charging be operated, paid for, and managed?
• Will the EV charging capability need to grow, by how much, and when?
• What type/level charging should be provided?
• How many chargers should be provided today; 5 years; or 10 years?
• What power and infrastructure are required?
• Where should the EV stalls be located? Close to the electrical room? Closest to the destination?
• How does accessibility affect EV charging? How much will this cost? What fees do we have to charge to recover the costs?
At the end of this ACC Lunch & Learn webinar, participants will be able to:
• Understand the scenarios for future demand for EV chargers.
• Select the right types of chargers to meet user needs.
• Plan infrastructure for future growth in the demand for chargers.
• Understand the costs and factors that affect the potential fees required to recover the capital and operating costs of EV charging.
• Mary S. Smith, Vice President, Walker Consultants
• Carl Schneeman, P.E., Managing Principal, Walker Consultants
