April 10

This pilot one-day in-person Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) training course will be offered for local government staff involved in the procurement of Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure.  The course will be presented on April 10, 2024, at the NHI training facilities in Vienna, Virginia, at 2600 Park Tower Drive, Suite 500, Vienna, VA 22180 (Weatherford Training Room).

Course Description: Course participants will be introduced to P3s and the potential benefits and challenges in using a P3 to deliver EV charging infrastructure. Participants will learn how P3s for EV charging infrastructure differ from traditional P3s used to deliver major highway and transit infrastructure projects and how P3 project agreements can be structured to address these differences. The training will discuss key steps to procure a P3 for EV charging infrastructure, from project preparation to market sounding and partner selection. A major part of the training will include discussion of key questions raised by use of P3s and hands-on instruction in the use of analytical tools for decision-making, including a screening tool to determine the appropriateness of a P3, a tool to evaluate the financial viability and affordability of a P3 for the public agency, and a tool to help ensure that the P3 model will achieve the strategic goals of the public agency. A preliminary agenda is provided below.
