The EV market has a CAGR of 22% at 567B through 2025.

Electric Vehicle Technicians

Electric vehicles aren't just cars - all vehicles are being produced with electric powertrains, including motorcycles, bikes, trucks, buses, boats, tractors, and loaders to name a few. Couple that with the Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) initiative, with many municipalities upgrading their vehicle fleets.

EVSE Installers

All these electric vehicles will need charging stations, whether in the home, at workplace parking lots, shopping malls, fleet terminals, and highway stops. EVSE stands for Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment.

Charging Stations:
Level 1: 120VAC, 15A, 1.5 KW average
Level 2: 208/240VAC, 30A, 7 KW average
Level 3: 400-600VDC, 300A, 50 KW average
Level 4: 800VDC, 150-400 KW
Utility interconnects
Demand response integration technologies
National Electrical Code (NEC) standards and requirements
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70E and OSHA regulations
National Electrical Installation Standards (NEIS) for EVSE
First responder safety and fire hazard measures
Wireless networking
EVSE troubleshooting and repair

Commercial drone and UAV usage is rapidly increasing, and all need to charged, whether back at home base or remotely. So EVSE applies to the drone industry too.

PV System Installers

Many remote charging locations benefit, either directly or supplanted by, solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. These are also popular for the home in southern latitude states.

PV Modules
PV System sizing and design
Utility interconnects and interties
Performance Analysis and Troubleshooting
Maintenance & Troubleshooting
Power Purchase Agreements

Storage Battery Installers

Many utilities can benefit from the use of Lithium-based batteries for electrical storage. This also applies to PV systems, wind turbines, and homes.

Lithium Batteries
Battery Management Systems
Cooling Regimes
Utility interconnects and interties

Electric Vehicle Fleet Management

Most existing fleets can benefit from modern fleet management software systems.

Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Regulations

ZEV states include California, Colorado, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington state. Each state has their own mandate.

Wind Turbine Technican

Although not EV-related, wind turbines use electric motors, motor controllers, and associated electrical/electronic systems that need qualified skills.
