Personal Profile

Eric Wood leads the Decarbonization Analysis team in NREL’s Center for Integrated Mobility Sciences. In addition to serving as team lead, he has played key roles in the development and refinement of multiple analysis tools in NREL’s portfolio, including the EVI-X Modeling Suite of Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Infrastructure Analysis Tools, which informs the planning and development of large-scale EV charging infrastructure deployments; the Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Projection Tool (EVI-Pro), which estimates the quantity and type of EV chargers needed to meet a given demand and identifies associated power demands on the electric grid; and the Battery Lifetime and Analysis Simulation Tool for system-level analysis of lithium-ion batteries. His work at the laboratory has also involved integrating real-world travel data into the analysis of vehicle, infrastructure, and energy storage systems. Interfacing with the Transportation Secure Data Center, he has worked with large geographic-enabled databases linking time-series measurements to underlying road network and elevation/grade layers.
