  1. 1. WestSmartEV: Western Smart Plug-In Electric Vehicle Community Partnership for Electric Vehicles and Infrastructure James Campbell March 26, 2019
  2. 2. 2 WestSmartEV: 3-Year Community Partnership
  3. 3. 3 Project Approach Task 1 Electric Highways: 1,500 miles of electrified interstate with 65+ DCFC Task 2 Workplace Charging: Workshops and 600+ L2 at work locations (completed) Task 5 WSEV Central: Data collection, analysis, modeling, lessons learned Task 6 Outreach: Lessons learned dissemination, materials, workshops Task 3 EV Adoption Pilots: Incentives for 200+ EV purchases (completed) Task 4 Smart Mobility: All electric solutions in urban areas
  4. 4. 4 DCFC location analysis • Developed power and energy demand models along the corridors • Dynamic vehicle models • All corridors, each direction, including elevation • State DOT volume and origin-destination traffic data • Developed dynamic analysis tool of EV trips supported by DCFC • Energy consumption model • EV trips possible through the network • Online visualization tools Web-based EV SOC DCFC EV trips possible to location (Moab) UDOT OD data Add new DCFC New chargers increase EV tripsAdd new Chargers
  5. 5. 5 Corridor Charger integration Chargers installed to date • 23 DC Fast Chargers (DCFC) • 598 Level 2 chargers • In both urban and rural areas Highway corridor coverage • Utah Interstates I-15, I-80: chargers at least every 100 miles, targeting every 50 miles • National parks: EV access to Zion and Bryce Canyon, plans for Arches and Yellowstone Photos:
  6. 6. 6 DCFC Usage by EV Owner Location Most frequent use comes from EV drivers who live outside/on outskirts of population centers. DCFC use by EV drivers in the city tends to be less frequent State-wide use Urban use
  7. 7. 7 DCFC Corridor Usage
  8. 8. 8 Smart mobility services Launched LYFT electric program • Incentivize drivers to participate • Train drivers to be EV ambassadors • Provide access to multiple strategically located fast charging stations • On-site ultra-Fast Chargers Launched electric car share program with Envoy There group • Car share for residents includes short and long range Evs • Includes high-end, student, low income housing Photo: RMP Photo: Giv Develoment
  9. 9. 9 Smart mobility e-bus Six electric buses • Park City bus route • Compiled data of both charger and bus performance for almost 2 years Y2 rollout planning: Salt Lake City • Collected real world drive cycles • Developed electric bus system planning tool Photo: Park City Transit 736,400 Miles traveled 147,000 GAL avoided 18.3 MPGe (Diesel is 4 MPG)
  10. 10. Summary • The project’s overall goal is to increase EV adoption in the Intermountain West is being achieved. Infrastructure and awareness has made a difference. Utah is now a top EV market • Key lessons – DC fast charging used primarily for corridors and urban dwellers – Daily commuters use L2 at the workplace and home – New and expanding electric mobility services enhances awareness – Need effective and consistent outreach and education efforts (fleet managers slow to adopt) • Rate Design is important – When DCFC’s meters are part of a building, demand charges are minimal – Utilization is important • Evaluating time of use rates for DCFC’s – For multiple DCFC’s power balance and demand response better strategy than on site solar and storage 10
