The overarching goal of this project is to develop a framework for hazardous gas LME evaluation and EV environmental impact mitigation. The framework will include an accurate LME evaluation model for hazardous gases, such as SO2 and NOx, and an optimization model to identify EV charging facility locations that will minimize hazardous gas emissions. This framework will provide guidance for infrastructure planners so that they can keep public health in mind and choose low-emission locations for EV charging facilities. The project includes two objectives:
- Develop an accurate hazardous gas LME evaluation model for power systems.
- Develop a model to analyze and mitigate the impact of EV charging on hazardous gas emissions from power systems.
