When it comes to transportation, our brains naturally default to thinking in terms of miles and gallons. But when it comes to electrification, how do we make sense of it all? What is the capacity of a kilowatt, and how does that translate to range? How long does it really take to charge an electric vehicle, and how does it differ from traditional fueling methods? What are CHAdeMO, CCS, and NACS? In this virtual learning seminar, we'll delve into the language and logistics of electrified transportation. More than just EV 101, we'll explore how electric fuel is dispensed, measured, and sold and how those elements are applied to charging infrastructure and the vehicles themselves. You will be provided with a clear understanding of the key concepts and terminology surrounding this rapidly evolving field.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the basic calculations around kilowatt hours and other measures and how they translate to electrification and the latest vehicles available.
  • Explore the nuances of EV charging, the different plugs, the benefits of smart charging, and the potential influences on your business.
  • Prepare you with the right questions to ask and consider as you strategically plan for an electrified future.
