Charging 101 – Planning & Buildout
While much of the attention given to electric trucks is focused on the vehicles themselves, charging infrastructure must be equally considered and planned for. Charging electric trucks can be quite different from traditional diesel refueling processes and presents some unique challenges that fleets, utilities, and OEMs alike need to be aware of.
In this training, participants will learn:
The stages of charging infrastructure procurement, from planning and design to construction and operation.
The difference between Level 2 and DC fast charging power levels and what this means for downtime, electricity pricing, etc.
What business models exist for depot-based charging buildout?
What the future of public charging might look like?
Bootcamp speakers include:

- Fleet Decarbonization: A Guide to Cost-Efficient Zero-Emission Vehicle Transition (Black & Veatch)
- US EPA West Coast Collaborative Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Corridor Coalition (WCC-AFICC)
