The project will provide historical plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) charging load profiles from real-world PEV charging observed in two major charging infrastructure demonstrations: The EV Project and ChargePoint America.

It will also provide defensible future projections of PEV load profiles resolved temporally (by time of day) for N years into the future and spatially by region in California, for:

  • any scenario for the numbers of PEVs deployed by year
  • any assumptions on the type and fleet mix of PEVs that are deployed (e.g. EVs and PHEVs)
  • any assumptions on how/when people charge their vehicles, e.g. home vs. work vs. public charging, L1 vs. L2 or faster charging
