LTC, Jack R. Widmeyer Transportation Research Conference, Going to San Bernardino A Symposium on Intermodal Transit Stations and Transit-Oriented Design, 11/06/2009, Sarah Catz

  1. 1. Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions Transportation & Design InitiativesSarah L. CatzCenter for Urban InfrastructureInstitute of Transportation Studies andUniversity of California, Irvine UCTC
  2. 2. California’s Rapid GrowthBy 2030, CA is projected tohold over 15% of the U.S.population, approximately50 million people, an increaseof 13.5 million or 37%.CA currently has 3 out of the 5most congested urban areas inthe USA:–Los Angeles (#1)–San Francisco-Oakland (#2)–San Diego (#5)
  3. 3. POLLUTIONCongestion costs CA approximately $20 billion per year inextra fuel and lost time, and congestion is increasing by anaverage of 10% per yearCA is the 12th largest source of greenhouse gas (GHG)emissions on the planet, with emissions rising by 15.1% during1990-2004CA has recognized this problem and enacted legislation, AB32 and SB375.41% of the State’s emissions come from the transportationsector
  4. 4. National Fuel Cell Research CenterFacilitates the Development & Deployment offuel cell technology and fuel cell systemsDedicated in 1998 by the US Department ofEnergy and California Energy CommissionFirst university fuel cell research programestablished in United States
  5. 5. Fuel Cells & HydrogenFuel Cells are Similar to Batteries--- Batteries store energy while fuel cells can produce electricity continuously aslong as fuel and air are suppliedElectrochemically combine a fuel (typically hydrogen)and an oxidant without burning and emitting pollution. – When used to deliver energy, hydrogen produces zero or very low emissions.Emissions from a hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehiclecontain only water vapor. – Hydrogen today can be produced efficiently from natural gas as well as no- petroleum sources. – Hydrogen emerging as principal candidate to meet the needs of next- generation transportation systems
  6. 6. Hydrogen Fueling StationOrange County Grand Opening 2 yearsagoFirst in CA capable of dispensinghydrogen at 10,000 pounds per squareinch– can double a car’s driving range.Capacity of 25 Kilograms of Hydrogenper day– 5 to 10 fill-ups3 to 6 minutes to fuel a vehicle
  7. 7. UC Irvine Hydrogen StationStation Details Air Products, Series 200 Publicly accessible (Users have 24-hour access with a pin code) 350 bar & 700 bar gaseous hydrogen dispensing 25kg/a day dispensing capacity User friendly, retail-like design
  8. 8. Hydrogen Utilization • Fuel cell replaces Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles the engine • Gasoline is replaced with hydrogenDoublesEfficiency FC H2 H 20 Zero Emission
  9. 9. Project DrivewayGeneral Motors’ Program to familiarizefuel cell vehicles with publicApplications for Drivers in Washington,DC, Westchester County, NY and OrangeCounty, CADrive car for free for three months43 mpg170 miles per tank
  10. 10. Additional Fuel Cell ProgramsFord– 30 fuel cell Focus compacts around the worldBMW– 25 Hydrogen 7 carsHonda– Projecting 2018-2020 in showroomsGeneral Motors– Projecting 2010-2011
  11. 11. Plug-in VehiclesPLUG-IN HYBRID • The secondary battery is larger • The vehicle can plug into a socket to charge the battery from the electrical power grid • Vehicle has some all electric range
  12. 12. Battery All-Electric Vehicles• Zero emission vehicles• Vehicle sharing program: “ZEV∙NET”• Large battery pack for all electric range• Ideal for integration with mass transit systems
  13. 13. Daimler2010 Smart for Two EV
  14. 14. FORD 2010 –Transit EV2011 –Focus launch
  15. 15. GM Chevy2010 –Volt EV
  16. 16. Volkswagen/Audi2011 Toureg PHEV 2013- E-UP! EV
  17. 17. BMW2009 – Mini EV Trial
  18. 18. Driving Forces –Governmental Incentives U.S. •$25B Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Loan program from the DOE; $2B economic stimulus program for battery development –to put 1 million EV on the road by 2015 (President Barack Obama) •Stimulus grants awarded to date to Ford ($5.9B), Nissan ($1.6B), Tesla ($0.5B) China •Funding to raise annual production capacity to 500,000 EV by the end of 2011 France •$3.68B for 2 million electric cars on the road, and 1million charging points in place by 2020
  19. 19. Other CountriesJapan – Funding to guarantee that half ofall cars sold by 2020 will be electricSpain - $360M funding to put 1 millionelectric cars on the road by 2014UK - $400M incentive program forbuyers of electric carsGermany - $705M stimulus funding to put1 million electric cars on the road by2020.
  20. 20. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Information Technology•Location Detection and Information•Real Time Traffic Information•Smart Signage/Kiosks•Software that will connect vehicles tosmart charging and to transportationinformation•Crash Prevention•Social Networking
  21. 21. I DRIVE GREEN www.ecodrivingusa.comProject aims to create 250,000 greenerdrivers by 2010Three tips to be a greener driver– Simple maintenance of car– Drive with Finesse– avoid stop-starting– Learn what your bad habits are– online courses on good habits taught by race car drivers EcoGyser
