The purpose of this manual is to provide a comprehensive reference on electric utility cost allocation for a wide range of practitioners, including utilities, intervenors, utility regulators and other policymakers.
January 2020
Producing the electricity to power electric vehicles can generate emissions. But those emissions levels are far lower than the pollution emitted by conventional vehicles, and could be even lower as the electric power sector cleans up over next few decades, according to a new report issued today.
January 2020
RMI’s groundbreaking report Reducing EV Charging Infrastructure Costs finds that the electric vehicle (EV) charging industry needs to do what the solar industry did about a decade ago: streamline and de-bottleneck installation.
December 2019
In this study for the Colorado Energy Office, RMI performed a comparative analysis of three proposed tariffs that are specifically designed to meet the needs of the unique type of load presented by DC fast chargers (DCFCs) for electric vehicles.
December 2019
This report provides an overview of public and utility funding for three major categories of medium- and heavy duty EVs: transit buses, school buses, and trucks. It builds on recent reports covering the market in California and finds that the business case for investing in electric buses and trucks is improving and electric models already have lower lifetime costs than conventional models in some cases.
December 2019
This report presents the results of a comprehensive study to compare the emission, cost, and economic and jobs impacts of alternative technologies for the MD and HD transportation sector. The analysis was conducted to better understand the type and pace of alternative vehicle technology and fuel implementation required for California to achieve its public health goals.
December 2019
This report explores policy options for medium- and heavy-duty electrification and argues that policy approaches should center on improving air quality in communities most burdened by vehicle pollution.
November 2019
Transportation sector is the largest contributor of global greenhouse gas emissions in the USA. Disruptive technological changes in this sector, such as alternative fuel vehicles, are crucial for emission reduction. This report analyzes how a cost-minimizing strategic transition plan can be developed for a transportation firm that aims to adopt electric trucks in their fully diesel fleet, over time.
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.
October 2019
This issue brief provides data about the trends in EV adoption, a synopsis of the types of decisions commissions are facing, and examples of recent state regulatory approaches to EV questions.
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.
