SF Power and Energy Society Technical Presentation April 2015


Topic: Get Ready! Plug-In Electric Vehicles are Coming and You're at Ground Zero!

Speaker: Gary H. Fox, PE- General Electric

Ready or not, the San Francisco Bay Area is among the locations where large numbers of early adopters of plug-in electric vehicles reside. While these users may keep their "range anxiety" to a minimum by keeping round trip travel from home within the vehicle battery range, demand will grow for electric vehicle charging stations in commerical applications to handle the case of employees, customers, or both. This presentation will dig into the terminology, codes, standards, and application issues that you need to be familiar with to accommodate electric vehicle charging stations into your electrical distribution designs.

Lunch will be provided (includes vegetarian). There will be a $5 fee to IEEE Members and a $10 fee to Non Members. Payments to be made in person (cash or check) at the event.
