GLRPPR Sector Resource: Site Design for EV Charging Stations

Site Design for EV Charging Stations

Sustainable Transportation Strategies prepared this report to highlight best practices for designing electric vehicle (EV) charging stations -- those parking spaces where EV supply equipment will be used to charge vehicles. Now that communities are ramping up with installations of EV supply equipment, designers are encountering a host of design issues that are generating creative solutions -- and mistakes. This report is intended to be used by persons who are responsible for safe and convenient design of EV charging stations. Many topics covered by this report are beyond the professional responsibility of electrical contractors. The report should be used alongside other resources, including those that cover electrical design standards for installation of EV supply equipment. Site Design for Electric Vehicle Charging Stations addresses the kind of equipment available and how parking facility design offers both opportunities and challenges for charging station installations. Several design scenarios are illustrated.
