Seattle’s Dynamic Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Siting Model is a GIS-based tool to guide EVSE deployments that align with the City’s priorities and the EV Shared Mobility Project’s objectives. The model includes a variety of different data sources that are nearly all publicly available.
This white paper evaluates the business case of hosting a Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) charging station in New York. The analysis relied on charging use data provided by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) along with real-world data on equipment use, costs, revenue, and assumptions derived from industry reports and original research. The report explored scenarios that vary charging use and revenue sources to better understand the key factors that drive profitability from hosting these stations.
The paper argues that the electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure gap needs to be closed for this market transformation to occur and that electric utilities and public utility commissioners can play a critical role in addressing this gap.
This report shows that by adopting a goal of reducing motor vehicle emissions 55% by 2035 from 1990 levels and implementing a suite of familiar and achievable policies, New York can ensure the transportation sector is on track to meet economy-wide goals, improve public health and the environment, retain billions of dollars in the state’s economy, and promote an equitable transportation sector transformation.
This report reviews lessons learned from relevant studies and initial outreach activities and provide recommendations for future engagement and action to electrify ride-hailing services in the Seattle area.
This paper compares existing and proposed EV fees with the gas taxes paid by the average new gasoline vehicle to determine whether they are placing an additional tax burden on EV owners compared to non-EV owners, then estimates the effectiveness of EV fees at increasing highway funding revenues.
This report provides an overview of electric utility filing activity related to transportation electrification for the first half of 2019. From January 1 through June 30, 2019, commissions throughout the United States have approved more than $116 million in electric utility investment in transportation electrification.
This paper analyzes the capital costs of the electric vehicle charging infrastructure needed for public, workplace, and home charging for the most populous 100 metropolitan areas in the United States from 2019 through 2025. The 100 metropolitan areas analyzed represent 88% of all new electric vehicles sold and 75% of the overall U.S. vehicle market.
This paper quantifies the infrastructure needs and associated costs for implementing battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell trucks in three applications: long-haul intercity tractor-trailers, drayage trucks, and medium-duty delivery trucks.
In their new white paper, the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) covers four core challenges related to public charging infrastructure and how they impact customers, site hosts, and electric companies respectively. For the purpose of this paper, interoperability is defined as the process of harmonizing of standards, technology, and practices for EV charging in a way that provides transparency for customers and encourages ease of use.
This impact report outlines the progress that the electric utility AEP Ohio has made on their transportation electrification programs and how this interfaces with the overall goals of Smart Columbus. In addition to expanding the charging network throughout the region, AEP Ohio is committed to grid decarbonization to further enhance the emissions saving potential of the Smart Columbus programs.
This report provides an overview of bus and truck electrification in the United States. Electrification in the medium- and heavy-duty vehicle sector is increasing in the United States with California leading the way. This report draws on recent research from the ICF and other sources to present information on electric bus and truck deployment, market conditions, and some background on supportive public policies.
This report explores the evolution of shared mobility and electric transportation networks in China, India, and the United States. It evaluates the role of policy, economics, infrastructure, and behavioral norms in influencing mobility trends in these countries. The report argues that supportive policies are needed to accelerate this transition and help overcome behavioral norms that bias toward gas vehicles and the advantages of already-built fueling infrastructure.
The brief analyzes different policy action at the state, local, and utility level and their effects on EV uptake across the United States. It highlights examples across 50 of the most populous metropolitan areas in the country to emphasize successful programs encouraging both EV adoption and charging infrastructure deployment.
This report from Rocky Mountain institute and the electric utility Seattle City Light (SCL) studies the potential impacts of increasing EVs in Seattle and offers insights for electric utilities to develop strategic transportation electrification plans that ensure grid reliability. The report argues that utilities should partner with city agencies to support "aggressive electrification commitments" and to ensure they keep up with technological changes. SCL is working directly with the City of Seattle through the EV Shared Mobility project to ensure that efforts towards transportation electrification are aligned.
RTD pays nearly 60 percent more per mile to power its electric buses along Denver’s 16th Street Mall as it does its conventional diesel fleet. It’s a price disparity that could slow the transit agency’s embrace of zero-emission technology at a time when the state’s new Democratic governor is pushing to put more electric cars on the road and air quality and climate change have become ever larger topics of conversation in Colorado.
This report is the first four-year update to the 2015 pLAn. It augments, expands, and elaborates in even more detail L.A.’s vision for a sustainable future, including climate change policy. This report is also referred to as L.A.'s Green New Deal.
Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) remain an important technology in the electrification of passenger transportation as both a transitional and an enabling technology that can accelerate EV adoption. This policy brief explores the current conditions of the PHEV market and the role this technology can play in the move towards higher levels of EV adoption.
This website contains a report and tool that aims to lay out a roadmap for the development and expansion of charging infrastructure servicing electric trucks. The report suggests steps for fleet operators to follow when pursuing electrification plans.
