EV Site Assessment Training is a virtual training series hosted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory that is designed to provide fleet managers and coordinators with the skills and knowledge to become subject matter experts in electric vehicle implementation. This four-part training serves as an introduction to electric vehicle technology and considerations for electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) installation. Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to select the best EVs for their fleet, as well as plan and install the necessary EVSE to serve the needs of these new vehicles. This webinar will focus on advanced considerations for EV site assessments, optimally operating a fleet of EVs, and managing workplace charging.


Jesse Bennett, Research Engineer, National Renewable Energy Laboratory  

Jesse Bennett works at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in vehicle technology integration, helping fleets implement electric vehicles and electric vehicle supply equipment. He performs site visits, makes implementation recommendations, troubleshoots electric vehicle fleet projects, and develops training sessions for fleets. Prior to joining NREL, Bennett worked as a materials and standards engineer with Duquesne Light Company, where he developed standard construction drawings and material specifications for a broad range of electric distribution equipment such as transformers, switches, and cable. He also received his Bachelor's Degree in electrical engineering from Bucknell University.
