Lafayette benefits from new NREL publication—Using Energy Data for Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Planning
Due to participation in the SolSmart program and demonstrating a commitment to carbon emissions reduction from City actions, Lafayette, Colorado was selected as one of ten cities to participate in the U.S. Department of Energy's Cities Leading through Energy Analysis and Planning (LEAP) program which is led by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Co.
As a partner in the Cities LEAP program, NREL completed a city-specific energy analysis for Lafayette to be used for strategic energy action planning. State and Local Energy Data (SLED) was analyzed to inform Lafayette's infrastructure planning for electric vehicles.
The final product of the collaboration—a fact sheet for electric vehicle infrastructure planning—is now publicly available. The fact sheet can be accessed here.
The City is grateful for the support from the U.S. DOE and NREL in the development of this report which will enable Lafayette to develop EV infrastructure more strategically and to encourage EV market growth in the community. Learn more about Lafayette’s energy sustainability efforts.
