October 30, 2019 — RAEL Lunch, Gordon Bauer, “Leveraging big data and charging coordination for effective taxi fleet electrification: A case study of Shenzhen, China”

October 30, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

On-​​demand mobil­ity fleets have become an impor­tant part of urban trans­porta­tion, and the sec­tor is expected to grow rapidly in com­ing years, lead­ing to increases in green­house gas emis­sions, con­ges­tion, and air pol­lu­tion. Despite analy­sis show­ing fleets should be a prime mar­ket for early elec­tri­fi­ca­tion, adop­tion of elec­tric vehi­cles in fleets lags adop­tion in the per­sonal vehi­cle mar­ket by a large mar­gin, and few plans exist to close this gap. My pre­vi­ous work with data from San Fran­cisco, New York City, and Shen­zhen, China sug­gests that proper fleet man­age­ment and coor­di­na­tion of charg­ing oper­a­tions are key levers to facil­i­tate elec­tri­fi­ca­tion at low or neg­a­tive cost. In this pre­sen­ta­tion I will review these find­ings and dis­cuss pol­icy alter­na­tives to accel­er­at­ing fleet elec­tri­fi­ca­tion, from data-​​sharing plat­forms and clear reg­u­la­tion of driver-​​operator rela­tion­ships, to elec­tri­fi­ca­tion man­dates and emissions-​​based con­ges­tion charges.
