Electric Vehicle Charging SafetyThis is a short course for anyone interested in learning the facts about the codes and standards that govern the safe installation of electric vehicle supply equipment.
You are probably hearing a lot about electric vehicles (EVs) these days. A $7 billion investment in charging infrastructure will change the driving landscape. Maybe you have concerns about how safely these stations can charge the estimated 22 million electric vehicles that will be on the road by 2030 (estimates vary, but the numbers are huge).
This is a short course for anyone interested in learning the facts about the codes and standards that govern the safe installation of electric vehicle supply equipment. Authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs) may find this information useful, as well as building owners and managers who plan to install equipment on site.
