American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) - Light-Duty Electric Drive Vehicle and Charging Infrastructure Testing
The Idaho National Laboratory (INL) was tasked by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO) to collect electric drive vehicle and charging infrastructure data for several deployment projects funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). These projects included charging infrastructure deployments, grid-connected electric drive vehicle deployments, and deployments with both vehicles and charging infrastructure. This represents the largest ever deployment of grid-connected battery electric vehicles (BEVs), extended range electric vehicles (EREVs), plug-in electric drive vehicles, and charging infrastructure.
This website contains fact sheets, technical reports, and presentations that have been reported to the DOE-VTO, project participants, and the general public. This information is being used to help DOE plan for the successful future deployment of additional grid-connected electric drive vehicles and charging infrastructure. Increasing the use of electricity as a transportation fuel supports the DOE goals of reducing the United States' dependency on foreign petroleum and enhances the overall security of the United States.
ChargePoint America - Plug-in Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Demonstration
ChargePoint America was led by ChargePoint (formerly Coulomb Technologies), with ARRA funding support from DOE. The project deployed 4,700 residential and commercial charging stations in the following 9 areas in the US:
- Los Angeles, California
- San Francisco/ Sacramento, California
- Washington, D.C.
- Boston, Massachusetts
- New York City, New York
- Austin/San Antonio, Texas
- Seattle, Washington
The data collection phase of ChargePoint America ran from May 1, 2011, through December 31, 2013 and captured over 1.5 million charging events. Idaho National Laboratory is responsible for analyzing the data collected and publishing results. This page contains summary reports and maps documenting charging unit deployment and use.
