One of the key challenges to growing the burgeoning electric vehicle market is evaluating the effectiveness of policies and actions that promote the technology. To date, no one has collected all available data and used it to systematically identify the activities most effective at accelerating the electric vehicle market. Funded through a grant from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), Atlas worked with the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions to develop a new app for New York state to address this need.
EValuateNY is an app to help identify the most effective activities at accelerating electric vehicle adoption in New York state. Relying only on readily available software, Microsoft Excel and Power BI, EValuateNY assembles several categories of information related to the electric vehicle market and equips users with the ability to gain insights and create compelling visuals quickly. The app is also designed to be easily updateable, so its value should grow over time.
In 2016, Atlas worked with NYSERDA to promote the value of EValuateNY through a blog series on The Energy Collective.
This project began in 2015 and will continue through 2017.
