Data and Tools

As part of a suite of technical assistance resources, the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation connects stakeholders with critical data and tools. These resources will expand over time to meet evolving needs. Initially, this suite of resources is aimed to help transportation stakeholders deploy electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure by:

  • Providing foundational data sets, including installed chargers and designated corridors
  • Helping states discover information independently
  • Enabling the market to expand using core capabilities from the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Transportation
  • Addressing gaps in existing data sets and tool requirements
  • Facilitating connections among states with EV charging experts

Technical Assistance Resources by Audience

  • States: Resources to connect states with critical data and tools
  • Communities: Resources to connect community stakeholders with relevant data and tools
  • Tribal Nations: Resources for tribal nations navigating transportation electrification
  • School Districts: Resources that can help school districts plan for and deploy clean school buses
  • Transit Agencies: Resources that can help transit fleets plan for and deploy clean transit buses

EV-Charging Analytics Reporting Tool

Directed by the Federal Highway Administration, the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation 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. EV-ChART is scheduled to launch in early 2024.

Cybersecurity Resources

The Joint Office worked with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Idaho National Laboratory to develop sample cybersecurity procurement clauses for states and EVSE purchasers to modify for use in requests for proposals and electric vehicle service provider contracts.

Network and Environmental Data

These resources help transportation stakeholders in understanding external factors to support EV charging infrastructure deployment.

Maps of Station Locations and Corridors

These maps and data from the Alternative Fuels Data Center provide valuable resources that can assist in the deployment of EV charging infrastructure.

  • EV Charging Stations: Filter by charging level, access type, and station status
  • EV Charging Corridors: View EV charging corridors designated by the Federal Highway Administration and measure the distance between stations that meet the criteria for corridors
  • Station Data for Alternative Fuel Corridors: Explore EV charging stations along alternative fuel corridors with a power output of at least 150 kW and four charging ports

Modeling Tools

These resources provide modeling expertise and tools for planning charging locations, designing charging stations, and performing financial analysis.

  • Caldera Simulation Platform: Software from Idaho National Laboratory that models how EV chargers draw power from the grid
  • EVI-X Modeling Suite: A suite of tools from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory that informs the planning and development of large-scale EV charging infrastructure deployments—from the regional, state, and national levels to site and facility operations. Tools are available for network planning, including community charging, long-distance driving, and ride sourcing, as well as site design and financial analysis.

Equity and Climate Impact Tools

These resources help transportation stakeholders understand equity and climate considerations.
