At the heart of the EVIDC's mission is to facilitate hands-on learning, testing, and data collection in the realm of EV charging technology. The facility offers a unique opportunity for visitors to immerse themselves in the world of EV and microgrid solutions, exploring a wide array of technologies. The EVIDC houses a comprehensive range of equipment, from Level 2 (AC) chargers and ultra-fast (DC), Level 3 Chargers, and pull-through heavy duty charging provided by various respected charger manufacturers to the latest in sustainable technologies, including inductive charging, solar canopies, and battery storage.
According to the press release, the Electric Vehicle Innovation Design Center is committed to transparency and innovation, offering visitors a unique opportunity to "try before they buy," making informed decisions on the EV charging solutions that suit their unique objectives. The facility goes a step further by providing not only real-time data-driven evidence of consumer use but also a hands-on training and learning environment for facility managers and electricians.
As a publicly available, client-driven center, the EVIDC aims to break the barriers to EV adoption by fostering confidence and knowledge among clients, reducing cognitive dissonance, and ultimately accelerating carbon reduction efforts.
