The Georgetown Climate Center and M.J. Bradley & Associates developed an electric vehicle (EV) corridor analysis tool to support state and regional EV charging infrastructure planning.
The corridor analysis includes an interactive maps 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 locations 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.
With the release of version 3.0 of the electric vehicle corridor analysis, the Excel-based tool is now paired with two mapping applications: the original “Data Viewer” map, which provides more complex GIS data visualizations, and a simplified “Results Viewer” map, which provides a real-time display of results.
The Excel-based tool and maps allows users to assess highway exits in the region based on metrics including existing EV charging stations, population, vehicle travel data, and commercial activity.
