Multi-Unit Dwelling Charging
Building for Now and the Future – Vehicle Charging at Multi-Unit Dwellings
Vehicle Charging Innovations for Multi-Unit Dwellings (VCI-MUD)
EV owners have a strong preference to charge at home and this requires solutions to overcome barriers to EV charging at MUDs.
The VCI-MUD project has collected usage data from eight sites around the U.S. The project team performed demonstrations on new charging technologies, including surveys and interviews with site hosts and building residents to evaluate user experiences.
- Read the project summary, learnings and takeaways: Technological Barriers to Electric Vehicle Charging at Multi-Unit Dwellings in the U.S.
- The project team is assembling a MUD Charging Toolkit that will help residents, building managers/owners and HOAs to navigate EV charging at MUDs. The toolkit website was released in July 2022.
