Noteworthy Practices in Developing Electric Vehicle Infrastructure



Noteworthy Practices in Developing Electric Vehicle Infrastructure
Tuesday, April 20, 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm ET

This webinar will showcase strategies for agencies to address infrastructure needs to accommodate EV and autonomous vehicles. This includes a big picture overview of how agencies can successfully work with utilities; a description of how one state evaluated and selected zero emissions vehicle infrastructure projects; design of roadway infrastructure to accommodate electric and autonomous shuttles; and a discussion on truck electrification.

The webinar will be presented in four parts: 

  • Partnering with Utilities to Implement Electric Vehicle Infrastructure
  • North Carolina – Successful Strategies to Develop Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Projects
  • Development of Roadway Infrastructure to Accommodate Autonomous and Electric Vehicle Shuttles
  • A Truckload of Benefits with Electrification

Partnering with Utilities to Implement Electric Vehicle Infrastructure
Presenter: Ken Kresyman Jr., Business Development Manager, Fleet Electrification, Ameren Missouri

In this segment, the speaker will discuss how agencies can work with utilities to implement electric vehicle infrastructure and provide the basics for agencies that are starting electrification and tools to partner early with utilities. This portion will include the basics of power mechanics, how to frame needs with utility companies, and establishing timelines. 

North Carolina – Successful Strategies to Develop Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Projects
Presenter: Dave Willis, Environmental Program Consultant, North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality, Division of Air Quality

During this segment, the speaker will describe how he helped states develop and select zero emissions vehicle infrastructure project plans. He will discuss the project scoring process, how AQ reductions were estimated, and describe tools used to review NOX reduction when site usage is not known. Lessons learned on addressing site placement where existing infrastructure was located will be covered.

Development of Roadway Infrastructure to Accommodate Autonomous and Electric Vehicle Shuttles
Presenters: Ryan Fetchko, Transportation Technology Engineer, VHB; Bruce Doig, PE, LEED AP, Director of Local Governments, VHB

Altamonte Springs, Florida, is future focused on improving mobility for its citizens, and autonomous vehicle shuttles are an important part of their plan to be more interconnected. VHB is leading design and construction of a new three-mile multi-modal flexible circulator pathway from Uptown Altamonte to its Sunrail commuter station. The new path will be a part of a broad network of interconnected multimodal facilities located throughout the city. Participants will learn key design elements of AV paths; traffic, safety, and micro-mobility concerns for incorporating autonomous vehicle infrastructure and recreational pathways; and best practices for community and municipal stakeholder engagement throughout the process.

A Truckload of Benefits with Electrification
Presenter: Dave Schaller, Industry Engagement Director, North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE)

The trucking industry is now stepping into electrification, but it is a huge change and challenge. Fleets need to understand total cost of ownership and utilities need to understand how time of use impacts those numbers. Both sides are complex, highly regulated and difficult to understand. This segment will discuss how NACFE & RMI are working to bridge the gap between fleets and utilities. The 2021 Run on Less – Electric is an important aspect of establishing benchmarks: real EV trucks with real freight powered electricity for cleaner air.
