How Technology is Accelerating the Growth of Oregon’s EV Industry -Transportation Electrification

  1. 1. TransportationElectrificationChoosing electricity as atransportation fuelMay 3, 2012Charlie AllcockDirector, Business DevelopmentOregon’s EV Initiatives Create TechnologyOpportunitiesInnoTECH © 2011 Portland General Electric. All rights reserved.
  2. 2. Electric vehicles are here now 25/4/2012
  3. 3. EVs and charging infrastructure in Oregon More than 700 electric cars and trucks bought in Oregon in 2011 As of March 2012, there are more than 1900 EVs registered in Oregon (Includes conversions and neighborhood electric vehicles) Oregon has more than 500 charging stations installed, with many more to come this year More than 40 Oregon businesses are working on transportation electrification and vehicle efficiency technologies 35/4/2012
  4. 4. The EV Project Largest deployment of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure in history Aug. 5, 2009: US DOE awarded ECOtality a $99.8 million dollar grant Nearly $200 million dollars will be expended (1:1 match of grant money) Current project progress in Oregon: 350 private level II charging stations installed 150 public level II charging stations 1DC Quick Charging station in Portland; 30 in total expected 45/4/2012
  5. 5. West Coast Electric HighwayFeb. 12, 2010: Action Plan signed byGovernors of Washington, Oregon andCalifornia and Premier of Vancouver, BC Build a “Green Highway” along I-5 corridor Promote public-private partnership Share standards and best practices for alternative fuels Maximize impact of public fleet policies Maximize results from research and commercialization efforts Over 10 installed between Eugene & Medford; another 40+ expected in Oregon by year-end 2012 55/4/2012
  6. 6. Electric Avenue A public street dedicated to charging PGE, Portland State University and City of Portland partnering on 2 year R&D project to examine charging behavior patterns & system impacts Located on PSU campus in downtown Portland, adjacent to Transit Mall 7 different chargers from 6 manufacturers Tens of thousands of daily visitors make it ideal venue for product launches, demo drives, briefings 65/4/2012
  7. 7. Trends and forecast Electric vehicles are becoming more available as auto manufacturers continue to choose Portland as a deployment market Total cost of ownership vs. initial cost: as gas prices continue to increase, the operational savings of EVs will increase US DOE Planning Grant will create a roadmap for how to take the region to the next level of EV charging infrastructure Commercial Electric Truck Incentive Program, passed in 2012, will replace 200 fleet trucks with electric trucks 75/4/2012
  8. 8. Consumer experiences are happening now Charging infrastructure is available, EV experiences are happening daily – and they will continue to increase in frequency Increased capabilities and better standards are needed now Software can help ensure positive EV experiences by: Creating universal standards for identification, authentication and billing – charging up should be as easy as filling up Charging station maps and location tools must be updated quickly and accurately as new chargers are installed – it can take up to six months for new public charging stations to show up on maps Charging station availability status capability: being able to see if a charger is available will greatly improve the experience 85/4/2012
  9. 9. This information is all software-driven 95/4/2012
  10. 10. From anywhere in the world…… 105/4/2012
  11. 11. Real world applications are being tested Osaka EV Action Program Japanese project to popularize EV taxis EV taxis provided with exclusive stands near major train stations In-vehicle tablet PC terminals equipped with GPS systems allow EV taxis to receive calls from passengers waiting at the taxi stands Dedicated EV taxi stand operated in Osaka Prefecture 115/4/2012
  12. 12. Kanematsu’s VOLTA System 125/4/2012
  13. 13. Checking Availability & Reserving a Charger 135/4/2012
  14. 14. Next steps: “Eyeballs and Seats" strategy Ensure that Oregonians see this technology in successful use every day Give Oregonians as many opportunities for a plug-in vehicle experience (either riding in, or driving) Get involved with supply chain on emerging technology and software needs 145/4/2012
  15. 15. Many more vehicles coming in 2012-14 155/4/2012
