Course Title: Electrifying the Transportation Sector: Planning and Designing For Electric Vehicle Usage

Delivery Method: Live Online

Course Description: The United States is in the midst of a transportation revolution—from fossil-fueled automobiles to electric vehicles. In California alone, the governor has set a goal of having 1.5 million electric cars on the road by 2025. Some of these electric vehicles will be hybrids, and some will be electric only, or plug-in, vehicles. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels Data Center, the Clean Cities Initiative, and dozens of local government initiatives around the country are working to provide the regulations, incentives and infrastructure necessary to facilitate the transition to electric vehicles. Designers and constructors need to understand electric vehicle technology so that they can design buildings, parking facilities and communities that provide the necessary infrastructure for electric vehicles. This webinar gives design and construction professionals the background they need to understand the technical issues involved in order to provide the correct amount and type of charging facilities in the most convenient locations.
