Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Planning Tools
The Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Location Identification Tools were developed using a Geographic Information Systems (GIS)-based analysis to evaluate the existing plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) charging network and utilized a focused dataset to identify possible suitable locations for future PEV infrastructure development. These tools are focused on public direct current fast charging (DCFC) infrastructure along around 14,000 miles of key PEV corridors in the 12-state Transportation and Climate Initiative region (Virginia to Maine, including D.C.), and North Carolina.
Together, these tools—the Excel-based Infrastructure Location Identification Tool and online Results Viewer and Data Viewer Visualization Maps–allow the user to assess locations along key metrics important for DCFC infrastructure, including proximity to existing infrastructure, commercial activity, and demographic data. The tools are designed so a user may generate and visualize rankings of locations that reflect the relative suitability of those locations for infrastructure development based on regional- or state-level priorities.
M.J. Bradley & Associates (MJB&A) and the Georgetown Climate Center conducted this analysis on behalf of the Transportation and Climate Initiative.
