Webinar: Workplace Charging: Expanding Electric Vehicle Infrastructure in Minnesota

November 14, 2012 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Having the option to charge electric vehicles at the workplace is perhaps the most important place for new EV infrastructure outside of the home.  In many cases, vehicles are parked for 4-8 hours at a stretch offering an extremely convenient place to recharge.  Successful efforts will depend on the employee, employer and/or building owner being fully informed as to the challenges and benefits.  Workplace charging programs don’t have to be costly or complicated, yet they will provide a valuable service for employees, and they will create an increasingly important marketing tool for a business or a building owner to attract and retain employees and/or tenants.

Join us for a meeting that will present findings on best practices for establishing a workplace EV charging program and case studies of existing programs in Minnesota.  Research on workplace charging was conducted on behalf of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and MPCA is sponsoring this webinar.

Presenters:

John Bailey, Independent Consultant and former Senior Researcher with the Institute for Local Self-Reliance in Minneapolis. Bailey is author of a forthcoming report on workplace charging in Minnesota (prepared on behalf of the MN Pollution Control Agency) and Electric Vehicle Policy for the Midwest (2009).

Martha Larson, Manager of Campus Energy and Sustainability at Carleton College. Larson helped establish Carleton College’s workplace charging program.

3M Representative (invited). 3M established a workplace charging program in 2011.
