United way giving campaign electric vehicles

  1. 1. Electric Vehicles September 7, 2011 Karthik Krishna Sr. Project EngineerAMI & Advanced Technology Program Development Colorado Springs Utilities
  2. 2. Presentation Outline Why Electric Vehicles? Electric Vehicle Characteristics Efforts at CSU Efforts at the Federal Level2
  3. 3. Why Electric Vehicles? Global oil shortages and rising gas prices Environmental Concerns US Energy and Economic Security … its also fun to drive!3
  4. 4. Electric Vehicles Characteristics Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles Powered by two energy sources: battery and an internal combustion engine Electric driving range: 12-60 mi (unlimited overall range) Eg: Chevy Volt, Toyota Prius Plug-in, Fisher Karma Battery Electric Vehicles Powered 100% by battery energy Electric driving range: 100-300 mi Eg: Nissan Leaf, Tesla Roadster, BMW ActiveE 4
  5. 5. Efforts at CSU  CSU – Nor’wood Development partnership  Installation of EV charging stations in Colorado Springs service territory  Development and communication of customer marketing material and education on the benefits of electric vehicles  Collection of data on charging station usage to better understand demand on distribution system  On-going industry research and active participation in federal working groups (SGIP) for future planning5
  6. 6. Efforts at the Federal Level How do we transition from our current state to the envisioned future state? Initial State Envisioned Future State Passive charging control Smart charging and that would lead to “dumb discharging in an intuitive charging” and blown out and transactive grid that is transformers ubiquitous, highly reliable and secure Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP) initiated by the US NIST is developing a framework for a staged evolution of all key areas within the PEV industry6
