  • Good morning everyone. My name is Whitney Pitkanen and I am a Project Manager at CALSTART. I also have Jasna Tomic on the phone today who is the Fuels Program Manager at CALSTART who will be assisting with this presentation today. If you have any questions about the webinar or the EV Employer Initiative, please don’t hesitate to contact either of us at the email addresses listed on your screen. We have a lot of different folks online today, representing regulatory entities, car manufacturers, cities, and educational and corporate campuses to name a few. We have only an hour today so let’s get started….
  • First some logistics,… I’m going to be doing a lot of talking in this session at least, but I encourage you to raise your hand at any point in the presentation if you have any questions as I go along. Our goal is to make these meetings more interactive, and involving more group discussion as we go along.
  • By way of introduction, Workplace charging has often been considered in third place in terms of priority behind home and public charging infrastructure. However many have begun emphasizing workplace charging as the most important secondary charge point after residential charging. There are several benefits specific to workplace charging. First, it would encourage the use of (plug in electric vehicles) or PEVs for daily commuting which has clear benefits for air quality. Secondly, charging at the workplace would enable an extended range for the PEVs that can drive to another destination after having charged at the workplace. Third, availability of charging at place of employment would provide much needed incentive for adoption of PEV, and offices can essentially act as a “showroom” for the different types of cars on the market.
  • So why did we start this Initiative? Well, the numbers of companies in Califronai that have installed workplace charging are still in the minority. Generally speaking, we’ve found that employers lack the information on the benefits of installing charging infrastructure or the process i nvolved. We have heard a clear need from employers across California for information sharing and development of “best practices” for workplace charging. So we began with a successful workshop hosted by Google at the end of July, and now we are continuing the process through a series of free, 1 hour web-based meetings on the last Tuesday of every month. The goal is to increase the number of workplace charging locations across the state and thereby increase the adoption of PEV’s. We feel this can be accomplished by sharing the successes and challenges of various employers in California who have installed workplace charging, and those who might be interested in doing so. We have a website coming soon that will have all the details of the Initiative including this PPT presentation and the others that will be developed as we move through this process.
  • We’ve developed 4 founding principles of the group, and by continuing to participate, you acknowledge you acceptance of these. They are simple: We encourage you to give us feedback on these principles: Do they make sense for your company? Are there others that should be added?
  • The end goal here is to create a set of Best Practices for Workplace Charging that all employers can have access to, and we need your feedback on these. Here is the initially list of what elements we think should go into the guidelines.
  • Other Motivators: Vehicle testing Promotion of the use of EV’s Data collection Reduce emissions, petroleum and cost from staff travel Evaluation of impact on the grid AQMD requirements One of the first areas that we will need feedback from the group is developing a better list of of direct and indirect benefits of workplace charging : These could include: EV charging use fees: Value of avoiding carbon emissions Capitalizing on government grants Additional tax deductions: Indirect benefits are harder to measure, but they could include things like: -Socially responsible branding -Recruiting and retaining top talent -postive community image I would encourage us to find a way to monetize or create a defined value for these benefits during this process.
  • Cost and range are the two biggest barriers for the EV movement. EV Employer Initiative will address the range issue. CALSTART’s policy/incentives work will address the cost issue. Choosing the appropriate system… next slide
  • So there are several things to learn here: There is Good mixture of public and private orginizations respresented in the first mover category And there are currently nearly twice as many Level 2 charging systems in use than Level 1s.
  • So here is where we are going to temporarily open the lines for discussion.

    4. 4. Copyright CALSTART 2011 Why Workplace Charging?  Fills a critical gap in PEV Infrastructure needs  Extends the range of PEVs and builds the market  Creates local ‘PEV showrooms’ for info sharing on vehicles  EV’s can act as ‘employee pool cars’ for day trips
    5. 5. Copyright CALSTART 2011 Purpose • What? A series of FREE,1 hour, web-based meetings that will occur on the last Tuesday of each month. Building off of success of Google Workshop. • Why? To cause a measurable increase in workplace charging locations in the state, and an increase the adoption of electric vehicles. • How? By sharing successes, information, and challenges between California employers engaged and interested in installing electric vehicle charging systems at their workplaces. • Who? Employers (public and private), EVSE providers, building owners, building landlords, and OEMs New website coming soon! www.evworkplace.org
    6. 6. Copyright CALSTART 2011 The founding principles of the EV Employer Initiative for participating employers/companies are: Develop solutions for providing PEV charging opportunities for employees. Share non-proprietary information with other employers. Provide resources and information to employees about PEV solutions, Evaluate adding PEVs to their company fleet mix Principles
    7. 7. Copyright CALSTART 2011 To develop a set of ‘Best Practices for Workplace Recharging’ WHAT SHOULD THESE GUIDELINES CONTAIN? •Inventory of EV infrastructure strategies, options, and internal policies currently being implemented by businesses today. (Case Studies) •Identification and recommendation of EV Infrastructure strategies based on size of business. •Development of a simplified flowchart or template for EV Infrastructure installation. •Creation of a manual identifying the EV value proposition (costs/benefits) for businesses. Goals

    11. 11. Copyright CALSTART 2011 Choosing the Appropriate EV Charging System Level 1 • Provides charging through a 120 volt (V) AC plug • Most, if not all, PEVs will come with a Level 1 EVSE cordset so that no additional charging equipment is required. • On one end of the cord is a standard, three-prong household plug. On the other end is a J1772 standard connector which plugs into the vehicle. • Longer charging time - Level 1 charging adds about 2 to 5 miles of range to a PEV per hour of charging time. • Less costly
    12. 12. Copyright CALSTART 2011 • Provides charging through 240 V (typical in residential applications) or 208 V (typical in commercial applications) electrical service. • Requires special installation of equipment and a dedicated circuit of 20 to 80 amps. • Level 2 adds about 10 to 20 miles of range per hour of charging time, depending on the vehicle. • Faster charging time • More costly Level 2 Choosing the Appropriate EV Charging System
