Call for papers for a virtual special issue at Transportation Research Part D on the Topic: “Role of Infrastructure to Enable and Support Electric Drive Vehicles”
Electric drive (e-drive) vehicles (plug-in electric and hydrogen fuel cell electric) are being supported by governments around the world to promote the transition towards a sustainable transportation future. However, the adoption of e-drive vehicles is conditional on the availability of an extensive and reliable network of refuelling/recharging infrastructure and policies to support its deployment. This infrastructure not only supports e-drive vehicle ownership and operation, but also enables integration opportunities between vehicles and the energy supply sector, especially the power grid. Over the past decade, a substantial amount of infrastructure has been deployed, especially for plug-in electric vehicles, and important advances have been made in modeling and analysis of infrastructure deployment.
This special issue solicits contributions to explore the role of infrastructure to enable and support the market transformation to e-drive, including environmental and energy transition issues, the role of public policy, and the synergies between infrastructure, vehicles and the power grid, and between connectivity and automation and e-drive. We welcome submissions related to analysis, optimization, planning and evaluation of charging and hydrogen fueling infrastructure to support public and private, passenger and freight modes. We especially welcome analytical and modeling studies focusing on refueling/recharging infrastructure siting, planning and assessment and related policies and the inter-relationships between infrastructure and market acceptance of e-drive vehicles. We also welcome review articles that describe the current state of the art in the aforementioned areas.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Value and role of refueling/recharging infrastructure on vehicle adoption, including willingness to pay and role in market acceptance of e-drive vehicles
* Siting of refueling/recharging stations (methodologies and/or case studies)
* Assessment of synergies between e-drive recharging/refueling infrastructure and connected, automated vehicles
* Environmental and energy transition issues related to recharging/refueling infrastructure
* Vehicle-to-grid integration opportunities (energy and environmental) enabled by charging stations or hydrogen fuel production
* Policy analyses to support alternative fueling/charging infrastructure deployment and market transformation
You are welcome to submit your papers between November 2018 and April, 30 2019. We aim to offer feedback in approximately three months after submission and authors are expected to submit final revised manuscripts within three months of receiving comments.
This issue will be a virtual special issue. This means that your paper will appear in the next regular issue of the journal after it is accepted. After all papers are accepted, guest editors will compile a virtual issue on the journal website.
