EV charging at workplaces and multi-family housing will allow employees and tenants increased access to charging options and accelerate the adoption of electric transportation. Our webinar panelists will share updates on programs advancing workplace charging and at multi-family housing.
Forth launched the Electric Vehicle Adoption Leadership (EVAL) Program in 2021 to provide, resources and recognition for organizations as they adopt sustainable modes of transportation at their workplaces.
Forth in partnership with the Center for Sustainable Energy and Energetics also launched the Vehicle Charging Innovations for Multi-Unit Dwellings (VCI-MUD) project. The project conducted surveys and interviews to curate a multifamily housing charging toolkit to help residents, building managers/owners, and housing authorities to navigate implementing EV charging at multifamily housing.
Speakers will discuss funding opportunities, best practices, and lessons learned for employers, building owners, and apartment building managers who are interested in providing charging.
