Dr. Nadia Gkritza receives DOE award to conduct electric roadways feasibility study
Through funding awarded by the DOE ARPA-E IDEAS program, the electric roadways study will analyze freight and passenger vehicle corridors in lower Los Angeles County and evaluate in-road inductive wireless and overhead conductive electric roadway technology solutions. The year-long study’s results will be extended to other major US cities and interstates and will assess
- First adopters
- Value proposition for incremental rollout
- Technology gaps for accelerated market adoption
- Localized impact on utilities and emissions reduction
The study’s team consists of faculty from Utah State University, Purdue University and Colorado State University; industry partner AECOM; and Southern California Edison.
