  • 2012 tot2013 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 EVsharing 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 2nd 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.

    2. 2. 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.

    4. 4. 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.
    5. 5. 5 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
    6. 6. • 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
    7. 7. 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
    8. 8. Proceeds from $100 EV fee reinvested in public-access charging network, consistent with other transportation mitigation investments (Proposed) Washington EV Infrastructure Bank $ 478 $ 371 $ 210 8,218 12,778 3,658 17,338 FY 2013 – FY 2016 35,578 BEVs (10-year total) $100 paid annually (156,944 renewals) x = $15.9 million • Loans • Loan guarantees • Financial incentives • Limited grants Proposed limited-duration: 10 years or until BEVs reach 0.5% of state’s passenger vehicle fleet
    9. 9. 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
    10. 10. 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).
