LSU Joins DOE’s Workplace Charging Challenge
LSU Campus Sustainability has joined the Department of Energy’s Workplace Charging Challenge. The challenge is open to employers of all sizes and industry types in the United States whose charging stations are primarily for employee use. Taking the Challenge offers benefits to employers who are considering installing charging, as well as those who have successfully launched workplace charging programs. In addition to the employee benefit of installing workplace charging, joining the Challenge will enable LSU to receive:
- Informational resources and technical assistance
- Assistance with assessing whether workplace charging is right for LSU
- Access to an information sharing network and their best practices
- Peer-to-peer exchange at workplace charging events
- Support from Challenge ambassador organizations
- Recognition of successes.
LSU currently has 3 EV charging stations on campus (see this map for locations), and 13 drivers who routinely use electric vehicles. LSU Campus Sustainability aims to promote greenhouse gas reductions in daily campus activities, energy efficiency and work towards a more sustainable campus. The charging stations help us encourage alternative transportation by providing a convenient way for electric vehicle drivers to charge their cars.
