The scientists, engineers, and analysts of the Electric Vehicles at Scale Lab Consortium (EVs@Scale Lab Consortium) are conducting research that will spur the development of affordable, convenient, and reliable charging infrastructure for electric vehicles (EVs) to help decarbonize the U.S. transportation sector and encourage greater EV consumer adoption rates. Transitioning to a nationwide fleet of on-road vehicles powered by electricity will bring the transportation sector closer to a zero-emission future.
Research Focus Areas
The Consortium will conduct research in:
Research and Technical Outcomes
The EVs@Scale Lab Consortium is:
- Optimizing charging to ensure demands placed on the grid by EVs consistently meet consumer expectations and balance the availability of electricity with existing applications.
- Identifying a computationally efficient and straightforward system for integrating EV charging networks and technologies with the grid that is widely deployable to enable safe and reliable high-power charging.
- Advancing and validating wireless charging technologies to make them practical for long-distance travel along heavily trafficked corridors.
- Formulating technologies, practices, and standards to enable high-power, low-cost, and ubiquitous charging options for EVs while defending internet-connected EV charging infrastructure against cyberattacks.
