As the U.S. prepares to make unprecedented levels of public and private investments in electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure, the optimal placement and siting of charging stations within the broader transportation network will be a critical factor to ensuring the success of this capital spending. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Department of Defense (DOD), and Gannett Fleming are actively partnered on developing and deploying advanced technologies that will support large forthcoming federal investments in charging stations for large fleets as well as the traveling public. Initial testing is taking place at several military bases across the country, including the Maine Corps Air Station Miramar (MCAS) in San Diego.

This session will take a deep dive into how this process is evolving and explore future applications to the EV charging site placement tool as it relates to unlocking California’s and the U.S.’ e-mobility future.


Session 13 | Panel: Tolling and Congestion Pricing – Paying Our Way to Improved Mobility

As congestion and road pricing are being considered for urban environments, implementing traditional toll roadside infrastructure becomes a challenge. Some congestion pricing programs are testing new approaches for limited infrastructure while still supporting both transponders and license plate images for vehicle identification.

Road infrastructure consists of several elements that detect and identify individual vehicles and time of transactions, such as digital connectivity, automatic vehicle identification, automatic vehicle detection and classification, video enforcement systems, and a zone controller/host. Urban congestion pricing solutions must provide this capability while minimizing additions to existing traffic intersection infrastructure. This talk provides an overview of some of the challenges with urban congestion pricing infrastructure, examples of potential solutions, and other options for consideration.
