Fact Sheet: Combatting Range Loss in Extreme Cold


Cold weather range loss for electric vehicles is real. However, that has not stopped chilly cities from deploying electric buses and trucks. To counteract cold weather range loss, fleets have taken advantage of technological advances in electric trucks and buses and have employed mitigation and adaptation strategies. This fact sheet discuses on-the-ground success of pre-heating the interior and battery, strategic planning and adaptation, more efficient heating technology, and longer ranges with newer vehicles.

Evaluating EV Charger Reliability and Performance


In an effort to identify processes for measuring, verifying, and evaluating charger reliability and performance, the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO) and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) convened an online Evaluating EV Charger Reliability and Performance Charrette on June 13, 2023. The charette was facilitated by Atlas Public Policy staff, and invited participants included a balanced representation of stakeholders from the EV charging industry, state and federal government agencies, including State Energy Offices and State Departments of Transportation, utilities, and consulting firms.
