|Through EV WATTS, your driving and charging patterns will inform federal EV support efforts!|
We hope you will join us for an exciting initiative that will contribute to federal government understanding of the need for electric vehicle charging infrastructure support while showcasing electric vehicle usage. The Electric Vehicle Widescale Analysis for Tomorrow’s Transportation Solutions (EV WATTS) project is being supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, organized through Energetics (Akimeka).
EV WATTS is addressing a growing need for practical information about vehicle electrification. Virginia Clean Cities is a part of the EV WATTS PROJECT TEAM. The team is collecting real-world use data from plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) and charging stations (also known as EVSE – electric vehicle supply equipment). Researchers will then validate, analyze, and summarize the data, which can be used to inform future research, development, and deployment.
We are recruiting public and private partners to contribute plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) and charging data. We will facilitate your anonymized data contribution by the installation of a telematics device (device and installation provided by the project) or data transfer from your existing EV information platform.
As an EV WATTS Data Partner you will:
- Receive an Individualized Data Analysis Report,
- Receive Access to a Database You Can Use to Compare Your Data to State and National Trends, and
- Contribute to an Aggregated National Database for use by Government and Other Partners.
*The data you contribute will all be aggregated and anonymized.
