  • 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!
  • CEC Statewide Infrastructure Plan Ten regional PEV Coordinating Councils Developing Infrastructure Plans Statewide PEV Infrastructure Plan Inform CEC ’s investment plan and programs Provide guidance to local communities and regions Guide state level policy and convey public infrastructure plans Timeline Release of Draft Plan— by August 2013 Final Plan released— by the Fall 2013 ZEV Guidebook Governor’s Office of Planning and Research Guidebook for PEVs and Hydrogen Fuel Cells Updated and Expanded Version of the PEVC Community PEV Readiness Toolkit ADA, Signage, Templates, Model Ordinances Planned Release – Late summer 2013
  • - Tesla intends to connect Sacramento to Oregon this fall!
  • The PEVC web site gets 2000-2500 hits per month The Drive Clean and the PEV Resource Center get about 11,000 hits/monrh

    16. 16. Progress, Challenges & New Opportunities 17 Washington’s West Coast Electric Highway Network Jeff Doyle Director, Public/Private Partnerships WSDOT EV Roadmap 6 July 30, 2013 Portland, Oregon
    17. 17. Washington’s Electric Highways: Infrastructure Deployment 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 miles. Charging equipment: Both AeroVironment DC fast charger (CHAdeMO) and Level 2 EVSE (J1772) at each location. 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 Act funds.
    18. 18. Measuring Project Outcomes Use of the DC Fast Charge Stations Continues to Grow:
    19. 19. Electric vehicles registered in Washington •As of July 2013 •7-29-13_jl •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.
    20. 20. 21 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 ChargePoint America Awarded $37m to install 5,000 charging stations in 37 regions, including eastern King County (Bellevue/Redmond). Clean Cities 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 making
    21. 21. • How will the next EV charging networks be deployed without grant funding? • What can be done to ensure completion of The EV Project DC Fast- Charging network? • Who will lead future EV charging infrastructure deployment efforts? • How can both the CHAdeMO and SAE’s Combo plug be deployed and supported? • What are the performance measures for the effectiveness of public- access charging networks? • …And many, many other issues. Challenges & Emergent Issues
    22. 22. EV drivers in Washington pay $210 per year in transportation taxes … …plus an annual $100 BEV fee Two Upcoming EV Initiatives in Washington •$ 478 •$ 371 •$ 210 •$ 100 •Avg. Sedan •(24 mpg) •Avg. Hybrid •(40 mpg) •100% Battery Electric x 3,000 = $300,000 per year

    24. 24. Experiment: •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- share Pilot Project Goals: •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! Potential Partners: •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
    25. 25. New Opportunities: expanding the charging network and fostering EV innovation •Washington Governor Jay Inslee Proposed Clean Energy Investments •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).
