What can we learn from research on electromobiltíty in California

The PH&EV Research Center launched in early 2007, collaborates closely with California utilities, automakers, regulators, and other research institutions such as the Electric Power Research Institute and Argonne National Lab on research aimed at developing a sustainable market for plug-in vehicles.

The PH&EV Research Center is affiliated with the Institute of Transportation Studies (ITS) at UC Davis. ITS-Davis is the leading university center in the world on sustainable transportation.  It is home to more than 60 affiliated faculty and researchers, 120 graduate students, and a budget of $12 million. While the principal focus is research, they also emphasize education and outreach. The work closely with regulatory bodies in California and have been part of forming and advising several policies in California.

The researchers presenting will be:

Tom Turrentine is the Director of the Center. For the past 25 years, he has been researching consumer response to alternative fuels, vehicle technologies, road systems, and policies with environmental benefits.

Gil Tal is the Research Director of the Center. He holds a Ph:D in Transportation Technology and Policy from UC Davis. At the PH&EV center Dr. Tal is leading projects on the future need for electric vehicle infrastructure, and the correlation between charging infrastructure, travel behavior and the demand for EV’s.

Alan Jenn is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Center. His research focuses on the policy issues in the realm of alternative fuel vehicles such as battery electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids, and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.

Scott Hardman is currently a postdoctoral researcher. He is also leading the work within the International EV Policy Council.
