EVTC is home to the EV Transportation & Technology Summit. The transportation center is a U.S. Department of Transportation funded research facility located at the University of Central Florida's Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) in Cocoa, Florida. FSEC has been conducting alternative energy research for almost forty years, EVTC was established in October of 2013.
EVTC is focused on transforming the transportation system to accommodate the influx of electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs). One of the center's goals is to assist transportation planners in the integration of electric vehicles into a sustainable transportation system and to capitalize on the opportunity these vehicles present to enhance electric grid modernization efforts.
The EVTC is a consortium of transportation and energy experts from the University of Central Florida, University of Hawai'i, and Tuskegee University in Alabama. EVTC leverages the resources of its partner universities to conduct research and development, and to inspire, train, and support future scientists, engineers, and technicians. The EVTC program also collaborates with business and utility representatives, manufacturers, national labs and agencies to assist in program development to accelerate all forms of electric vehicle deployment.
