On December 27, 2016, EPA finalized its first-ever ENERGY STAR specification for electric vehicle chargers. While EV-readiness is not a requirement for certifying new homes, builders who cater to homeowners’ changing demands will benefit from understanding what is needed to make a home ready for an EV charging station. Ed Pike, a Senior Engineer at Energy Solutions, is a national expert on EV charging for residential applications. In this webinar, presented on May 17, 2017, he presents on state/local government codes to promote electric infrastructure for EV charging, technical requirements for installation, and cost savings from making homes and apartments EV-ready. Co-presenter John Morris, a leader for electric vehicles and efficient homes in the Northwest, shares findings from the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance’s 2016 Northwest Electric Vehicle Market Assessment. Contact the ENERGY STAR team to receive a recorded copy of the webinar.
