Electric Transportation

Advanced Energy has been helping shape the electric transportation industry since 1989. We believe that it is important to be proactive when managing a growing electric vehicle marketplace, and we are excited to share our expertise with you. We run a statewide program in North Carolina called Plug-in NC that increases education and awareness around electric vehicles. We also partner with utilities, builders, governments, businesses and schools to assist with their electric vehicle efforts.


Education and Outreach

A great way to begin supporting electric vehicles is through education and outreach. Our educational services range from providing content for your website to creating detailed guidebooks and fully planning workshops that include expert speakers and electric vehicle test drives.

Electric Vehicle Strategic Planning

A strategic plan begins with a readiness assessment that looks at your current electric vehicle environment. Once the assessment is complete, the plan will make recommendations and provide step-by-step instructions on how to implement an electric vehicle program.

Charging Station Consulting

Installing a charging station can be a confusing process. We will walk with you through the process from planning to promotion. We have worked with a large variety of locations and have formed best practices and step-by-step checklists to help you meet all requirements. Our staff engineers are experts in electrical code and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations, and will assist to ease any confusion that arises.

Program Implementation

Since 2011, we have been running a program called Plug-in NC that works to increase awareness of electric vehicles across North Carolina. Our program is led by a steering committee that consists of local industry stakeholders. Each year Plug-in NC hosts multiple events, creates new resources and provides assistance to North Carolina residents who have questions about driving electric. Through this successful model, we have been able to reach thousands of people in order to promote electric vehicles. We will share our lessons learned through this program and assist you in starting your own electric vehicle program.
