South Shore Clean Cities is pleased to partner with The Center for Sustainable Energy, along with 12 other Clean Cities coalitions and a host of other project partners on the Vehicle Charging Innovations for Multi-Unit Dwelling (VCI-MUD) project, a three-year project which began in 2019 with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Vehicle Technologies Office.
Although plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) adoption is accelerating nationwide, apartment and condominium residents face difficulties in access to PEV charging stations. Together, the project team will engage stakeholders to document barriers to MUD and residential curbside charging stations, demonstrate innovative technologies that address barriers, compile project findings in an easy-to-use toolkit and disseminate the toolkit across national, regional, state and local channels.
The VCI-MUD partners are currently collecting baseline MUD and residential curbside charging station utilization data and developing an innovative technology demonstration plan. Any organization interested in providing historical charging station utilization data and/or participating in a demonstration project is encouraged to contact South Shore Clean Cities at (219) 644-3690 or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
