Electric Vehicle Charging for Sustainable Developments


1-day course

CPD Credit: 6.5 hours, C2

Course Aim

The aim of this course is to allow engineers to gain a level of knowledge of EVSE’s in line with more matured technologies and ensure the client receives the highest quality project outputs. Engineers will gain a grounding which allows them to converse confidently regarding EVSE requirements.

Course Overview

As we prepare for a landmark change in the way we commute as citizens, we must also take more than a cursory glance at the enablers for this new (revived) technology. To this end, sustainable building developments need to prepare for Electric Vehicles in a sustainable way. In order to assist those specifying solutions to design for a sustainable future and a happy client, this course has been designed to assist engineers and developers to get the job right. One size doesn't fit all!

The course will consider the technologies, standards and use case specific design. It will offer an opportunity for discussion as well as practical specification writing.


  • The state of the art of Electric Vehicle technology
  • Current & emerging standards for EVSE’s
  • The importance of ICT
  • Charge Point Management & Payment Systems
  • Undertanding requirements of hosts and end users
  • Identifying use-cases
  • Electrical safety considerations
  • Electrical loads and energy management towards the future
  • Creating a sustainable requirements specification

Learning Objectives

This course has been developed to ensure that participants are up to date with EV technology, as required on client sites. The course will break the myths and misconceptions common to the industry and ensure that engineers have the appropriate tools to specify comprehensive and sustainable solutions, avoiding the risk of stranded assets, vendor lock-in or high running costs.

Who Should Attend?

This course will benefit consulting engineers on construction projects and those involved in environmental and sustainability management. The course is suitable for engineers of all levels who are interested in learning about Electric Vehicle charging infrastructure and the vehicle technology itself.

Trainer's Profile

Mark Daly, Eninserv.
Having qualified in Electronic Engineering, Mark Daly’s early experience was in electronic manufacturing and production, later moving into wider electro-mechanical roles. Mark first came to the Energy Industry in 1998 on the commissioning of a Combined Cycle Gas Turbine.

With considerable expertise in control systems as well as O&M for ESB at one of Ireland’s largest generator sets, he has taken his experiences into the next generation of challenges to hit the energy business. 2011 saw him transfer to ESB ecars where his multi-discipline background was used to find close fits between the energy sector and other industries such as ICT, Automotive and Telecoms. His stakeholder management skills were honed during this time while leading ESB’s input in a number of EU funded projects as well as working with state agencies towards the development of policies and the support of Irish industry in an emerging market sector.

Mark has been a key player in the energy sectors engagement with one of the industry’s most disruptive and exciting technologies. He is Director/Consultant with Eninserv.
