May 8, 2014

This student project discusses the feasibility of electric vehicle charging at James Madison University. The feasibility criteria studied includes technical requirements, infrastructure needs, user preferences, cost considerations, and institutional policies and constraints to perceive the use and effectiveness of an electric vehicle charger on campus. The methodology used was qualitative analysis of personal interviews with facilities and sustainability staff members at four universities in Virginia: George Mason University, Virginia Tech, University of Virginia and Bridgewater College. Interview data includes logistics, economic, infrastructure, and policy considerations for universities operating these stations. An analysis of the data is present as well as recommendations regarding installation of a pilot electric vehicle charger at James Madison University.
