Electric Vehicle Charging Analytics and Reporting Tool (EV-ChART)
The Joint Office of Energy and Transportation (Joint Office) is developing the Electric Vehicle Charging Analytics and Reporting Tool (EV-ChART), which will be the centralized hub for collecting the data required in 23 CFR 680.112.
The objectives of EV-ChART are to:
- Streamline and standardize the data submission.
- Integrate a set of reporting and analytic capabilities.
- Empower data sharing across stakeholders.
- Connect with other databases and tools, such as the Alternative Fuels Data Center, for further analysis.
EV-ChART is scheduled to launch in early 2024.
What data needs to be submitted?Where does data need to be submitted? When is it due? Who is responsible for the data?
Further information can be found in the Data Requirement Memo.
Data Format and Preparation Guidance
Reporting standards for data submissions to EV-ChART are outlined in the EV-ChART Data Format and Preparation Guidance and the format for the data is provided in the accompanying EV-ChART Data Input Template.
Acceptable file format extensions, file sizes, and submission methods will be determined and published later. The required data are organized into nine modules, which are represented as different tabs in the EV-ChART Data Input Template.
The Joint Office EV-ChART team is developing data submission guidance in the form of a user guide: “How to Use EVChART.” The guide will be published around February 2024, containing:
- An overview of the EV-ChART platform.
- Registration and login steps.
- Designation process for subrecipients to submit data on behalf of direct recipients.
- Registration process for stations and ports.
- Data submission and approval information.
EV-ChART Pilot Group Participation
The Joint Office seeks to establish a pilot group of EV-ChART users that will help refine the functionality and user experience of the tool. Members of this pilot group will provide feedback on EV-ChART features and capabilities, including by testing the data submission process and/or providing mock data.
EV-ChART pilot group participants may contribute to individual and/or group discussions to help shape the development and future operation of EV-ChART.
The Joint Office is requesting participation from two groups:
- Direct recipients or those responsible for submitting data.
- Subrecipients or those responsible for submitting data on behalf of direct recipients.
As the EV-ChART tool progresses, the Joint Office may engage additional user types (e.g., consumers of the data that are not directly responsible for submitting data) to be part of the pilot group.
If you are interested in participating in the EV-ChART pilot group, contact the Joint Office.
