Welcome

Introduction to the TIDE project and to this course on charging infrastructure for electric vehicles

1. Course overview

This course consists of 8 units and offers an overview of various aspects of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure. The first two units are available the first week, and two more units will open up each week for the remainder of the four-week course.

We've tried to keep it concrete and hands-on; each unit has a homework task that involves examining and researching your own local context and/or looking at examples from other places to see how they might apply to your context.

You will have the opportunity to learn from other course participants from other cities and to exchange ideas with them through the course forum. If you have a colleague who is also interested in EV charging infrastructure, you are welcome to do the course as a team. Michael Haag, the course moderator, will join the discussion on the forum regularly, offering comments, questions and feedback.
