Dr. Kontou is presenting Shuocheng Guo’s and her research on their empirical analyses that uncovered disparities in California electric vehicle rebates allocation, during the 2021 WSTLUR conference. Her presentation is on August 11th 4-4:45pm central. A 5- minute video on her research is available. The paper was published in Energy Policy earlier in 2021 and is openly accessible here: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.enpol.2021.112291.
We presented our research with PhD student, Denissa Purba, and Prof. Chrysafis Vogiatzis this Thursday Jun 24, 2021 on alternative fuel vehicle evacuation planning during the 2021 ISTDM conference!
Dr. Kontou presented at the Conference on Transportation, Economics, Energy and the Environment, held at the University of Michigan on Friday October 19th, 2019. Ria presented her published work on electric vehicle fast charging rates, which uncovers spatial heterogeneity and variations of electricity cost for different scenarios of fast charging station size and use based on over 7,500 commercial and industrial electricity tariffs available during 2017 across the United States. This study identifies opportunities to mitigate high electricity costs, which fast charging infrastructure operators bear, through appropriate electricity rate-making.
