Plug-in Electric Vehicle (PEV) Readiness

With funding from the U.S. Department of Energy and the California Energy Commission, California’s major regions are assembling PEV Readiness plans. The Luskin Center is the prime research contractor for the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) as it undertakes its PEV readiness activities in conjunction with a multi-stakeholder group of government agencies and utilities. The Center is providing the major analytics required to understand and plan for PEV demand and driving and charging behavior in the six-county region. In particular, this research is aimed at informing the strategic development of public and other charging infrastructure necessary to effectively support a transition to PEVs in Southern California. Projects include the folllowing:

1. Regional and Sub-regional PEV Readiness Planning

2. EV Charging in Multi-unit Dwellings

3. Workplace EV Charging Stations
