Intelligent power management company Eaton is assisting the University of Notre Dame in establishing new electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure for its students, faculty, staff, and maintenance fleet. This project will help Notre Dame meet the growing demand for EV charging across its campus and accelerate its progress toward achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.

“The university is pleased to be collaborating with Eaton in this emerging market as we work to continue to find ways to expand and diversify our microgrid here on campus,” said Paul Kempf, assistant vice president for utilities and maintenance at Notre Dame. “The university’s relationship with Eaton has existed for over 30 years and has allowed our campus to benefit from a wide range of quality Eaton products, EV chargers and the associated software being just one example in a long line of successes.”

“We’re thrilled to build on our long history of collaboration with Notre Dame by supporting the university’s EV charging needs today and into the future,” said John Rhodes, president of Assemblies and Residential Solutions at Eaton. “As EV adoption picks up speed, we’re delivering the breakout hardware and software capabilities needed to help the university implement fast, convenient and affordable EV charging infrastructure.”

Eaton is providing its Green Motion Building chargers to help Notre Dame provide safe and reliable EV charging at its campus utility and maintenance buildings, commuter and faculty parking lots, an administrative building, bookstore, and art museum. The charging stations can be monitored and optimized using Eaton’s Charging Network Manager software, which is included with the chargers. The software helps streamline installation and enables Notre Dame to remotely oversee its charging stations, manage access control and monetization, and reduce costs with load management from a single, intuitive dashboard.

“The updated chargers and additional software will offer data to help us more fully understand use and demand for EV charging on campus,” said Geory Kurtzhals, senior director of sustainability at Notre Dame. “The insight offered can better inform decisions as we move forward.”
