California Electric Fuel Implementation Strategies (CEFIS)

Project Area(s): 
Advanced Vehicles and Fuels

With support from the California Energy Commission, TSRC is studying strategies for overcoming barriers to the implementation of electric fuel for vehicles in California. The project is examining the current economics and performance of advanced batteries for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, exploring various business models for how the first costs of vehicles could be lowered for consumers, and studying battery secondary use and recycling prospects. Building on a workshop with industry experts in fall 2008 (go to CEFIS workshop page), the project will result in a white paper for the energy commission (go to CAISO data page).
