Multi-Unit Dwelling Charging

Building for the Future – Vehicle Charging Innovations for Multi-Unit Dwellings

Vehicle Charging Innovations for Multi-Unit Dwellings

The VCI-MUD project has entered the formal demonstration phase of the innovative technologies in nine sites around the United States. 

We are collecting usage data of the MUD sites participating in the project. Additionally, the project team is conducting surveys and interviews with site-hosts and building residents to better evaluate user experiences for these innovative technologies. 

The COVID-19 pandemic created unique period data, which prompted the project team to continue collecting data into September of 2021 hoping for a more normalized travel and usage pattern once widespread vaccination is more prevalent.

The project team is also assembling an MUD Charging Toolkit that will help residents, building managers/owners, electric utilities and local governments in acquiring EV charging. 

MUD EV Charging Toolkit Update:

  • The project team is assembling an MUD Charging Toolkit that will 

    help residents, building managers/owners, and HOAs to navigate EV charging at MUDs.

  • The toolkit will be developed as an online website, which will be available for early-access testing beginning September.

Charging up at home.

The ability to charge one's vehicle at home is an important amenity for the increasing number of renters and tenants who drive electric or hybrid vehicles. Providing charging at a multi-unit dwelling (MUD) helps to attract and retain tenants while accelerating the adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles. 


Why install charging stations?

  • Attracts and retain tenants

  • Prepare for future mass adoption of Plug-in Electric Vehicles

  • Potential extra source of revenue from visitors

  • Earn points towards LEED and other sustainability certification

  • Lower your building’s carbon footprint and attract like-minded tenants to the community

  • The International Code Council (ICC) passed EV-readiness requirements for new residential buildings in the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), which will be adopted by code agencies around the country.
