Improving Our Understanding of Transport Electrification Benefits for Disadvantaged Communities

  • Principal Investigator Debbie Niemeier, Ph.D.
  • University of California, Davis
This research will improve long-term sustainability by identifying how and why (or why not) transportation electrification (TE) projects align with regional and local transportation goals. The research will result in a deep dive case study that can serve as a template for evaluating future TE expenditures with respect to identifying and quantifying disadvantaged community benefits.

Integrated Modelling Program and TCO Calculator for Battery-Electric Medium- and Heavy-Duty Truck Deployment in Regional Freight Use-Cases

  • Principal Investigator Caleb Weed
  • Georgia Institute of Technology
This study identifies heavily-trafficked freight truck routes of optimal distances in Georgia and quantifies electrification benefits for fleets operating on these corridors by integrating outputs from MOVES Matrix, the Argonne National Laboratory’s GREET Model, the Georgia Tech Fuel and Emissions Calculator (FEC), and other models into a web-based tool.

Quantifying the Effects of Vehicle Electrification Programs on Traffic Loads

  • Principal Investigator Hanjiro Ambrose, Ph.D.
  • University of California, Davis
This study will explore the impacts of vehicle electrification policies on traffic loads in California. The white paper will provide estimates of how increased vehicle electrification could impact axle weights, average traffic loads, and pavement damages.
