NUTC Seminar: "Vehicle Choice Modeling Efforts at the U.S. Department of Energy"

Vehicle Choice Modeling Efforts at the U.S. Department of Energy

 Speakers:    Jacob Ward, Program Manger, for the Vehicle Technologies Office of the US Dept. of Energy and Thomas S. Stephen, Principal Transportation Systems Analyst for Argonne National Laboratories

Abstract:  The market for plug-in electric vehicles in the U.S. is inherently uncertain; analysts have projected market penetrations ranging from near-nothing to near-market saturation over time.  One useful analytical framework for making sense of this broad future uncertainty is a vehicle choice model, which estimates consumer willingness-to-pay at the interface of advanced vehicle characteristics and driver preferences.  This presentation will introduce and discuss a suite of six U.S. Department of Energy and National Laboratory vehicle choice models designed and used to explore technology and policy options to facilitate an electric mobility future.  Special focus will be made on the past application—including structure comparison, input standardization, and policy analysis—and future potential application (both by DOE and its national labs, as well as through potential external collaborations) of these models
