Pre-Event WS: Take the Guesswork Out of the Fleet Electrification Transition Process  

Education Type: 
Live On-Site
1.5 hours
10:30AM - 12:00PM (ET)

Pittsburgh, PA

0.2 CEU
Sponsored by: 

DOE Federal Energy Management Program - FEMP

This hands on training will provide all attendees the opportunity to learn about the capabilities of vehicle telematic technology, how to use it to inform the number of EVSE to be deployed at their facilities. In addition, EVI-LOCATE tool will be used to create a cost estimate of an EVSE design. This workshop will focus on understanding EV common metrics such us, miles per gallon of gasoline equivalent (MPGe) and kilowatt-hours (kWh) per 100 miles, EVSE power requirements, and cost estimate for EVSE deployment.


Leidy Boyce, Researcher Engineer at Sustainable Transportation Integration Group, National Renewable Energy Laboratory  

Leidy Boyce joined NREL in 2020 and works as a research engineer in the vehicle technology integration office. Trained as a petroleum engineer and data scientist, her line of work has always involved data analytics to inform decision making. She works closely with fleet vehicle data helping fleets implement electric vehicles and electric vehicle supply equipment to achieve fleet electrification goals. She believes that data accessibility, quality, and sharing are among the most valuable assets an organization can cultivate to run a smart business and foster sustainable changes.

Mark Singer, Senior Transportation Analyst, National Renewable Energy Laboratory  

Mark Singer has supported the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) fleet task since joining the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in 2009 and is the project manager for the Fleet Sustainability Dashboard (FleetDASH) web application tracking fleet fuel use behaviors. Mark has supported U.S. Department of Energy advanced vehicle technology efforts with analytic expertise ranging vehicle acquisition planning, alternative fuel infrastructure siting, sustainable fleet operations reporting, regulatory implementation, and consumer acceptance. Mark developed a background in data visualization, decision support tool development, and reporting across a range of industries and functional areas. He has an M.S. in industrial engineering from Purdue University.

Ranjit Desai, Lead EV Researcher and Analyst, National Renewable Energy Laboratory  

As a lead Researcher and Analyst, Ranjit is supporting efforts at NREL's Center for Integrated Mobility Systems (CIMS) as a part of the Sustainable Transportation Integration Group where he is researching Electric Vehicles and Charging Infrastructure. He supports the Federal Fleet team and U.S. DOE's Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) and works on EV charging infrastructure analysis projects, along with a variety of interdisciplinary integrated modeling and analysis transportation-related projects involving techno-economic analysis, financial modeling, technology adoption, and system dynamics. He has also developed models to analyze how the consumer heterogeneities, uncertainties and technological progress impact the adoption of electric vehicles.
