ITS-Davis Friday Seminar: Electric Vehicles-Buildings Nexus: Urban Charging Management in Multi-Unit Dwellings and Offices
[Please note this seminar starts promptly at 1:40 pm(PST)]
Democratizing access to charging infrastructure is a prerequisite for equitable electric vehicle (EV) adoption and use. Residential EV charging is the most prevalent and convenient option. However, multi-unit dwelling (MUD) residents have limited home charging access, leading to higher operating costs and less flexibility. In this talk, I introduce the concept of community charging hubs for shared charger use at MUDs. A modified job shop scheduling problem is formulated to optimize EV charging sessions’ scheduling. We apply our model, determine the charging hub’s performance, and evaluate the levelized cost of charging through a techno-economic assessment in Chicago, New York City, and Los Angeles. We uncover tradeoffs between the charging hub’s performance and its levelized cost of charging. The workplace is the second most common charging location; in the second part of my talk, I propose managing the EVs-office nexus and uncovering opportunities where building energy savings can enable EV charging.
