The Iranian Engineers of BC Association (IEBCA) would like to invite you to join us in an informative technical presentation by Dr. Hamid Atighechi, P.Eng. that will be followed by the 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM).
In the first portion of the webinar, the technical presentation takes the audience into a tour of the most current guidelines on deployment of Electric Vehicles (EV) chargers from planning through operation. You will learn about different stages of a successful deployment program including planning, procurement, design, construction, operation and trouble response, and interoperability. Finally, the grid impacts of EV charging stations, associated costs for the station owners, and potential mitigating solutions are discussed.
After the Q/A session of the technical presentation, the IEBCA's 2020 AGM program starts. This includes a presentation reporting on the 2020 annual activities of the Board of Directors (BOD) that will be followed by an introduction of the slate of candidates and election of the new members of the BOD by IEBCA members.
