Abstract

The author's university location is being developed as an alternative-fuelled-vehicle "ecosystem" that is serving both educational and research missions. In addition, it is assisting with gradual transition from gasoline-powered private vehicles to PHEV and EV thereby providing real positive regional environmental impacts. By highlighting the early phases of this transformation locally and including students in the discussion we hope to assist in accelerating this transformation for the future. This paper surveys our present status and provides data on the usage patterns as well as on the costs and practical difficulties encountered when considering hardware installation and making site selection.
