10:50 a.m.–11:20 a.m. Pacific: Start to Finish: Site Evaluation and Installation for Sustainable EV Charging

As the implementation of several infrastructure bills begin to be rolled out across the nation, builders, property owners and EV drivers alike, are asking questions about how this will impact them. The purpose of this presentation is to take a deep dive into what questions should be asked and how to best utilize this money and your parking in order to maximize charging experience.

While this presentation is intended to answer many of the questions people may have, as it pertains to EV infrastructure, of course, there will always be circumstances that arise that are unique to your site.

We will discuss key issues that fall under each phase of the project life cycle — start, construction, and post-installation:

  • Identify the problem and the expectations of the project
  • Understand future demand and initial utilization
  • Explore expected costs and timeframes
  • Examine charging station inner workings and various network providers
