Development of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations. Plus “Life with an EV”

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014 @ 5:30pm at Schneider Electric

Charging Station

Electric vehicle charging stations are the connection between modern plug-in EVs and the utility grid. They enable EVs to be charged at home or in public parking areas and must be compatible with standard EV ports. Engineering members at the Cedar Rapids Schneider Electric Design Center (former “Square D”) have played an integral role in product development and standards development for AC “level 2” and DC “level 3” charging stations. A presentation will be given on how they work and the development challenges. Various home and public charging stations will be on display.

Meet at Schneider Electric between 4:30 – 5:00pm for light snacks. Directions below.

Program is from 5pm – 6pm. Following the program we will move to the Metro Buffet on 33rd Ave near I-380 for a meal (optional).
