Abstract:

UC San Diego as a Lab-to-Market Ecosystem for the Electrification of Transportation

UC San Diego possesses the largest, most diversified portfolio of EV chargers ranging from prototypes to commercial systems than any location in the world. The campus currently has over 250 charging stations serving over 2000 unique drivers and 90 MWH of electricity per month. The year over year growth of both metrics has been 100%. The presentation will discuss emerging technology and consumer trends in this rapidly growing market.

Biography:

Byron Washom, UC San Diego’s first director of strategic energy initiatives, is a risk-taker and an explorer, and his appetite for adventure dates back to his childhood when he lived on the Midway Atoll, a tiny island – the size of UC San Diego – in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. His can-do attitude, and the fact that the word “boundary” doesn’t exist in his vocabulary, are a big part of his success: at age 27, he became the manager of technology and policy at a Fairchild Industries’ advanced projects department. He and his team went on to set eight technical world records for the conversion of sunlight to electricity. And Washom won the R&D 100 Award for the 100 most outstanding innovations in the world in 1984. Now he’s channeling his energy into UC San Diego’s sustainability initiatives.
