Transportation fuel consumes 31% of all the energy we use however it takes 51% percent of the money spent on energy in the state making it the most expensive energy we use.
Just last month, the Nissan Leaf, a 100 percent electric zero-emission vehicle, outsold all other Nissan models in Portland. March 2013 had the highest EV sales on record nationwide. In Oregon, and nationwide, the rate of EV adoption has far surpassed that of the hybrid in its early stages.
2012 tot 2013 tot I-5 comparison 2111 2283 7.53% US 2 comparison 354 406 12.81% I-90 comparison 13 72 81.94% What we’d really like to measure is the effectiveness of the project/brand in easing consumers’ concerns about range, resulting in higher sales figures in PNW.
Collaboration on outreach materials, research, cross-promotion of the benefits of EV sharing all of the learning on EV and EVSE usage.
Difficult issues…people are working on them. Most of our focus is on the charging infrastructure, and not the vehicles themselves.
31% growth in BEV sales in 2 nd Quarter = avg. ~380 new BEVs month (adding 4,560 per year – flat lined, not compounded or based on % increase, which would be even greater) Compounded annual growth rate: ~125% - much greater than 380 units/mo.
The PEVC is three years old this month – July 2013! PEVC membership convenes three times a year to have high-level dialogue on current and emerging PEVC policy and market trends Next PEVC meeting is November 6 at UC Davis. The focus will be themed around data collection. YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND
Carpool stickers: White are for pure battery electric vehicles, cng and hydrogen – cars that meet federal Inherently Low Emission Vehicle (ILEV) standard. Unlimited. Sunsets December 31, 2014. Green stickers, cleanest plug in hybrids, limited to 40,000. Sunsets December 31, 2014. To date – about 14,000 stickers given out by DMV
· NRG plans on building EV chargers on Route 99 (and a few on I-5) between LA-Sacramento and LA-Bay Area as part of their legal commitment to the CPUC settlement. They will concentrate first on metro areas, so these chargers will be put in likely as late as 2015. · San Diego to LA will be taken care of by NRG’s metro chargers and existing or planned chargers.
All work products expected to be completed by November!

Gasoline $3.81 31 3.23 $12.31
Diesel $4.11 40 2.50 $10.28
Biodiesel $3.99 40 2.50 $9.98

$2.35 29 3.45 $8.10
CNG $1.75 29 3.45 $6.03
• Make the 1,350 miles of the West Coast’s
“Main Street,” I-5, an alternative fuels
• First step: Create an Electric highway from
“BC to Baja”
Oregon: Spearheading EV Charging
EV Tourism/Partnership with Travel Oregon
• Goal: To develop an EV Tourism Industry in Partnership with
Travel Oregon, Travel Portland, and other Tourism Industry
– Develop EV Itineraries (will exist on TravelOregon.com and

EV Roadmap 6

Washington’s Electric Highways:
EV charging network: 12 public charging locations
in critical recharge zones outside of The EV project
to make DC fast charging available every 35 to 50
Charging equipment: Both AeroVironment DC fast
charger (CHAdeMO) and Level 2 EVSE (J1772) at
Locations: Private retail locations such as shopping
malls, restaurants, and fueling stations. Plus, two
“gateway” safety rest areas along I-5.
Completed: November, 2012.
Funding: $1.6 million grant through the Washington
State Department of Commerce, State Energy
Program, with U.S. Department of Energy Recovery
Use of the DC Fast Charge Stations Continues to Grow:
Electric vehicles registered in
•As of July 2013
•Content slide option 2
Map includes Electric Vehicles (EVs) produced by major automakers since about 2011. It does not include cars that were converted to
EVs by their owners, neighborhood EVs or EV models from the 1990’s that are still registered in Washington. WSDOT created this
map based on data provided by the Washington State Department of Licensing.
The EV Project
ECOtality $20M in U.S. DOE funds to install Blink charging
infrastructure in Puget Sound, ~1,000 public and fleet charging
stations,~1,000 home charging stations, 20+ DC fast-chargers
Awarded $37m to install 5,000 charging stations in 37 regions, including
eastern King County (Bellevue/Redmond).
Western Washington Clean Cities Coalition awarded $15m to install
charging stations & buy fleet vehicles.
Cities and Counties
Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grants to purchase charging
stations and fleet vehicles.
King County MetroPool
King County Metro’s 100% electric vanpool and vanshare commuting
program for large employers.
Regional collaboration for strategic
EVSE deployment and decision
• How will the next EV charging networks be deployed without grant
• What can be done to ensure completion of The EV Project DC Fast-
• Who will lead future EV charging infrastructure deployment efforts?
• How can both the CHAdeMO and SAE’s Combo plug be deployed and
• What are the performance measures for the effectiveness of public-
access charging networks?
• …And many, many other issues.
EV drivers in Washington pay $210 per year in transportation taxes
… …plus an annual $100 BEV fee
Two Upcoming EV
x 3,000 = $300,000
Proceeds from $100 EV fee reinvested in public-access charging
network, consistent with other transportation mitigation investments
•FY 2013 – FY 2016
•$100 paid annually
= $15.9 million
• Loan guarantees
• Financial incentives
• Limited grants
Proposed limited-duration: 10 years or until BEVs reach 0.5% of
state’s passenger vehicle fleet
•Can public agencies earn sufficient revenue from after-hour EV
rental fees to cover the incremental cost of buying an EV?
Public Fleet EV Car-
•Test the business case for shared-use agency vehicles
•Generate enough revenue to cover higher cost of adding EVs to fleet
•Actively promote EVs to nearby communities – perfect opportunity to
test EVs in a real-life setting!
•WSDOT, plus two or three other municipal fleets (cities, counties)
•Innovative private companies to manage the fleet (e.g., Getaround)
•Communities with basic network of public charging stations
and fostering EV
•Washington Governor Jay Inslee Proposed Clean Energy
•Extend EV fast charging network in Washington to expand consumer
confidence for using electric vehicles
•Leverage Washington’s clean, low-cost hydropower and wind
resources in the move to vehicle electrification with state
procurement of electric vehicles.
•Appointed Lynn Peterson as Secretary of Washington's Department
of Transportation (former Sustainable Communities and
Transportation Advisor to Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber).
