Electric Vehicles

This course presents solutions and recommendations for the transportation and electric utility industries as electric vehicle (EV) usage expands. The instructor will present scenarios to demonstrate that EV charging can be as convenient as refueling gasoline-powered vehicles. The underlying assumption is that consumers will expect EVs to be as numerous and as convenient as gasoline-powered vehicles.

Each scenario will explain the components that are needed to be installed to facilitate EV battery charging. All course material has been vetted by environmental scientists to ensure that participants do not need in depth knowledge of electric systems to benefit from this course.

This course can be applied to the Electrical Engineering Certificate.
