Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

    EVSE Toolkit

    The EVSE Toolkit is designed to provide information to organizations and government entities looking to install plug-in electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE). The toolkit contains a variety of documents pertaining to EVSE installation.

    For basic information on EVSEs, refer to the EVSE Toolkit Factsheet.

    For organizations looking to install a public charging station, refer to the Department of Energy’s Plug-in Electric Vehicle Handbooks for Public Charging Hosts.

    For commercial building owners and managers looking to prepare their properties for EVSE installation, refer to the Energy Star document Get Your Building Ready For Electric Vehicles.

    For Electrical Contractors looking to install an EVSE, refer to the Department of Energy’s Plug-in Electric Vehicle Handbooks for Electrical Contractors.

    For data on the unit, installation, and operations & maintenance costs of EVSEs, refer to Department of Energy’s Costs Associated With Non-Residential Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment.

    For information on federal and state regulations and incentives governing EV infrastructure, refer to the Alternative Fuels Data Center’s Louisiana Electricity Laws and Incentives and Federal Electricity Laws and Incentives.

    For information on installing EVSE and facilitating EV charging in the workplace, refer to the Workplace Charging Toolkit (see below).

    Workplace Charging Toolkit

    The workplace charging toolkit is designed to provide information to organizations looking to facilitate PEV Charging in the workplace. The toolkit contains documents that will be helpful for understanding the basics of workplace charging, employee engagement, implementation, and case studies of successful efforts to enact workplace charging.

    For the basics of Workplace Charging, refer to the Department of Energy’s Workplace Charging: Comparison of Sustainable Commuting Options and the Plug-in Electric Vehicle Handbook for Workplace Charging Hosts.

    Employee Engagement is critical to the feasibility and success of implementing a Workplace Charging program. For resources to conduct employee engagement, refer to the Department of Energy’s Plug-in Electric Vehicle Outreach Resources for Employees and the Sample Employee Survey for Workplace Charging Planning.

    For resources on implementing a Workplace Charging program, refer to the Department of Energy’s Level 1 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations at the Workplace, Request for Proposal Guidance, ADA Requirements for Workplace Charging Installation, and Sample Workplace Charging Policy.

    For successful case studies of implementing EV Charging in the workplace, refer to the Department of Energy’s Workplace Charging: Charging Up University Campuses and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Protecting Public Health: Plug-in Electric Vehicle Charging and the Healthcare Industry, and Utilities Power Change: Engaging Commercial Customers in Workplace Charging.
