Who Should Attend:

Policymakers and general managers.

Course Overview:

Electric vehicles continue to receive increasing attention globally and within the United States through gradually increasing sales, an increase in the number of models available, and an abundance of media campaigns. EVs are also receiving increased attention within the electric cooperative industry. Many cooperatives own at least one electric vehicle, and it is a common topic in strategic planning sessions and board meetings. This course is designed to improve a board’s ability to make strategy and policy decisions regarding EVs and their impact of their cooperatives.
