Award Description: The Idaho National Laboratory (INL) is part of a team of 49 project partners that will deploy 11,210 electric drive vehicle chargers that will be used to recharge 4,700 Nissan Leaf battery electric vehicles in five states: Arizona, California, Oregon, Tennessee and Washington. This charging infrastructure deployment team is lead by a Phoenix, Arizona based company called Electric Transportation Engineering Corporation (eTec). This project (The EV Project) will collect and analyze data characterizing vehicle use and charging patterns in diverse topographies and climate conditions, evaluate the effectiveness of charge infrastructure, and conduct trials of various revenue systems for public charge infrastructure. By testing and analyzing electric vehicle usage and charging patterns in a simulated mature charging environment, this project will foster the expansion of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure that will be available for widespread EV use throughout the country.The INL support for this project will entail collecting the required data from the 11,210 chargers and the 4,700 vehicles, analyzing this data, and reporting to Department of Energy (DOE), eTec, other program partners, and the general public as to vehicle use patterns, charger use patterns, vehicle operator charging patterns, and changes throughout the project period in order to support the national expansion of electric drive vehicle use and EV charging infrastructure.
