The Georgetown Climate Center and M.J. Bradley & Associates have updated the electric vehicle (EV) corridor analysis tool to support state and regional EV charging infrastructure planning. The July 2018 update expands the tools to cover more than 9,000 miles of roadways, adds the state of Virginia, and improves functionality.
The corridor analysis includes an interactive map of fast charging infrastructure along corridors in the region and an Excel-based tool that can be used to identify which highway exits may be good candidates for additional charging infrastructure investment.
The corridor analysis was developed in collaboration with Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states through the Transportation & Climate Initiative, as part of the initiative's ongoing effort to enable accessible and reliable charging for electric vehicle drivers in the region.
The Transportation and Climate Initiative is a collaboration of the transportation, energy, and environmental agencies in Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states working to reduce carbon emissions and other air pollutants from the transportation sector. The initiative is facilitated by the Georgetown Climate Center.
The interactive map displays existing fast charging infrastructure along selected corridors in Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states and uses various criteria to identify highway exits that are good candidates for additional charging infrastructure investment. The Excel-based tool allows users to assess highway exits in the region based on metrics including existing EV charging stations, population, vehicle travel data, and commercial activity.
