Don MacKenzie, Associate Professor, Civil & Environmental Engineering, University of Washington
For the last few years, researchers from the University of Washington’s Sustainable Transportation Lab have worked with the Washington State DOT to develop tools to support EV infrastructure planning in service of multiple goals including network coverage, serving current EV owners, and accelerating EV adoption. In this talk, Don MacKenzie will share some of his lab’s research on EV charging behavior and infrastructure planning, as well as some hard-earned lessons about translating research into practice.
