SAME Young Professionals COI Webinar: Pitfalls and Opportunities for Electric Vehicles at Government Installations

About This Webinar

Electric Vehicles may account for more than 25% of personally-owned vehicles (POVs) and
an even larger percentage of fleet vehicles by 2030. Despite their benefits and increased
adoption, the majority of new federal facilities and even those currently in design have no
provision for electric vehicle charging. This virtually assures costly future upgrades to
electrical infrastructure and associated paving and site work. Potentially worse, it delays the adoption of cleaner electric vehicles for employee use and can lock-in the use of more
expensive fossil-fuel-based fleet vehicles for years to come.

This panel discussion will provide a variety of viewpoints including those of the A/E industry, Federal Policy Consultants, and Installing Contractors on the charging of electric vehicles at federal facilities. It will provide guidance on how to design facilities to easily accommodate future electric vehicle service equipment and avoid common pitfalls during installation and design that can have long-term consequences. It will also explain the current regulations surrounding charging of personally-owned vehicles and provide guidance to facility mangers to navigate this challenge. Finally, it will explore the potential impacts on installation power quality when large, fast-charging equipment is installed, and describe how best to address these challenges and mitigate costs.

President, FedWay Consulting, LLC
Matt Bianco is president, FedWay Consulting, LLC, a firm that works to integrate, support, and procure EV charging technology for the Federal Government.

Matt has worked heavily with GSA on two Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPA's) dating back to 2015 which started with the implementation of charging stations at 32 separate Agencies supporting the portions of EO #13693 to “green” the fleet. Since the latest BPA in 2017 and the inception of the FAST Act guidance, Matt has implemented stations/programs for Agencies for both Fleet EV’s-Government Owned Vehicles (GOV) and Personally Owned Vehicles (POV) on Federal sites.

Matt has become a thought leader on the implementation of EV charging stations/programs, speaking to groups such as DOE's Interfuel, etc. The FAST Act guidance allow Agencies to implement workplace (POV) charging programs, which require drivers to pay for use. He has been a key part of starting these programs in the Military, Civilian and Intel Agencies.
