As of Q1 2023 we have established four Advisory Committees: Community First Technology Advisory Committee, Workforce Development Advisory Committee, Industry Technology Advisory Committee, and our Technical Advisory Committee, to inform project activities. We have developed a project webpage where you can find information on the project and ways to participate, https://etruc.org/.
Priority activities for 2023 are to finalize agreements with our two sites, MHX, LLC in Carson, CA and TravelCenters of America, in Ontario, CA, to continue our research and development efforts in advanced high-power charger systems, continue to engage electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) manufactures and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and finalize two studies related to fleet needs and technology maturity assessment and fleet charging infrastructure needs and technology maturity assessment.
This project revises Cal-Adapt's web application to accommodate the massive increase in the volume of climate-related data being produced in EPIC initiatives, and produces new climate visualizations and tools. These changes will be closely informed by stakeholder needs to support California's Fifth Climate Change Assessment and IOU vulnerability planning.
Provides data on climate extremes and compound events that impact electricity grid reliability, allowing stakeholders to efficiently plan for these events.
Uses computational and data architecture to affordably provide access to a vast amount of climate data as well as scientifically rigorous data analyses and tools developed in Cal-Adapt: Analytics Engine (EPC-20-007).
