With the objective of enabling Colorado Electric Vehicle (EV) research and policy, the Colorado Energy Research Collaboratory and Colorado State University have been tasked by Colorado Energy Office and the 2020 EV plan to build networks and collaboration potential among the Universities, Labs, industry, NGOs, policy makers, and state government.  

Goals of hosting a 3-part discussion series:

  1. Connect and foster information exchange between researchers, industry, government and those working on EV topics
  2. Enable rapid collaboration between interested experts to work on EV-related proposals

All three discussions will be recorded during live conversation and reposted for future viewing.

Goals of this Collaborative Electric Vehicle Research Resources directory:

  1. Foster information exchange, collaboration and partnering:  Create a way for the academia and research community to connect with the state of Colorado, industry, NGOs, organizations and other stakeholder groups by producing an inventory of experts in the electric vehicle space
  2. Federal government:  Interfacing with U.S. Department of Energy for upcoming FOAs and studies
  3. Policy:  Allow policy experts to exchange ideas with the research and scientific community along with the Colorado-based stakeholder groups in the electric vehicle space
