Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Projection (EVI-Pro) Lite Tool

EVI-Pro Lite is a simplified version of EVI-Pro, which was developed through a collaboration between the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the California Energy Commission, with additional support from VTO. EVI-Pro uses detailed data on personal vehicle travel patterns, electric vehicle attributes, and charging station characteristics in bottom-up simulations to estimate the quantity and type of charging infrastructure necessary to support regional adoption of electric vehicles.

The webinar will introduce the new EVI-Pro tool, which allows users to project consumer demand for electric vehicle charging infrastructure.

• Eric Wood, an NREL vehicle systems engineer, will demonstrate how to use EVI-Pro Lite.
• Bud Braughton, an engineer with the City of Columbus, will discuss how Columbus used a detailed planning study developed by NREL.
• Rachael Nealer, an analysis program manager within VTO, will discuss how EVI-Pro supports ongoing analysis at DOE.
