November 2019
This report provides a framework for helping consumer advocates analyze EV policy options (including ratepayer-funded transportation electrification programs) and ensure that the benefits of EV adoption are equitably distributed across customers.
November 2019
This briefing assesses metropolitan area-level data on electric vehicle registrations and identifies the 25 largest electric vehicle markets, which together represent 42% of new passenger electric vehicle sales globally through 2018.
November 2019
This report presents the findings of the Sierra Club's recent nationwide investigation into the shopping experience for consumer EVs. The report results show that 74 percent of auto dealerships surveyed do not have a single EV on their lot for sale and that consumers were still not being given important information about charging, battery range, and financial incentives.
November 2019
This report from the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) and their partners explores how utilities can influence home charging behaviors through EV time-varying rates that incentivize residential customers to charge off-peak thereby minimizing distribution system impacts and avoiding the need for costly infrastructure upgrades and investments. The survey results show that customers on an EV-specific time-varying rate were more familiar with the rate rules and more likely to charge off-peak compared to their generic time-varying rate counterparts.
November 2019
The present study aims to access the impacts of incorporating electrification of other economic sectors (and hydrogen production) into a carbon constrained electricity system across the state of Colorado.
October 2019
The tool was developed using a GIS-based analysis to evaluate the existing EV charging network and utilized a focused dataset to identify possible suitable locations for future EV infrastructure development. These tools are focused on public direct current fast charging infrastructure along over 12,500 miles of key EV corridors in the 12-state Transportation and Climate Initiative region (Virginia to Maine, including D.C.), and North Carolina.
October 2019
This analysis from the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM) compared the 2018 advertising expenditures in local markets in California and the Northeast for the best-selling electric vehicle (EV) model and the bestselling conventional vehicle model from six of the top EV manufacturers, including: Fiat-Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Nissan, and Toyota.
October 2019
This white paper quantifies the costs, benefits, and appropriate government funding associated with the transition to all passenger zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs).
October 2019
This memo provides charging cord guidance for on-street Level 1 (110-120V) charging in single-family and multi-family zones in Seattle. SDOT continue to explore additional, longer term EV charging solutions for single-family, multi-family, and mixed use zones.
October 2019
This brief lays out the challenges and opportunities of vehicle-grid integration (VGI). Electric vehicles (EVs) can help increase the utilization of existing electrical grid assets and put downward pressure on electricity rates by decreasing the average cost of delivering electricity. Many aspects of VGI, including time-of-use (TOU) rates and demand response programs have similar characteristics to other grid management programs.
October 2019
Carsharing provides members access to a fleet of autos for short-term use throughout the day, reducing the need for one or more personal vehicles. This report reviews key terms and definitions for carsharing, common carsharing business models, and existing impact studies. The report argues that as carsharing evolves toward automation, policies that encourage transportation equity for underserved communities and vehicle sharing (both pooled and sequential) should be explored.
October 2019
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.
September 2019
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.
September 2019
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.
September 2019
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.
September 2019
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.
September 2019
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.
August 2019
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.
August 2019
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.
August 2019
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.
August 2019
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.
August 2019
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.
July 2019
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.
