Leidos delivers electric vehicle charging infrastructure strategic plan and implementation road map for DOE site
(Reston, Va.) Sept. 28, 2022 – Leidos (NYSE:LDOS), a FORTUNE® 500 science and technology leader, recently delivered to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) a comprehensive strategic plan and implementation roadmap for electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure at its Hanford site. The roadmap focuses on transitioning the site’s light duty vehicle fleet to 40% zero-emissions vehicle (ZEV) standards by 2026.
"Leidos is proud to be a pioneer to mission-focused organizations, providing leadership and guidance as they transform to a renewable energy future,” said Eric Freeman, Leidos Senior Vice President and Integrated Missions Operation Manager. “As a large, rural installation with a sensitive mission, Hanford serves as an important electrification blueprint for other Federal installations and fleet managers to follow. We are excited to have been able to support DOE on this next-generation initiative.”
The roadmap delivered by Leidos to the DOE analyzes mission and scope, fleet and facility characteristics, fleet ZEV types, economics, fleet realignment, power supply and delivery, selection of EV supply equipment (EVSE) and lifecycle costs. Leidos drew upon insight and experience gained from more than thirty years of innovation across energy, surface transportation, and power system design to both Federal and Utility clients to prepare this plan.
President Biden signed Executive Order 14057 in December 2021 to accelerate the Federal Government’s transition to net-zero emissions. The executive order mandates 100% of newly acquired federal light duty vehicles to be ZEV by 2027 and 100% of medium and heavy-duty vehicles to be ZEV by 2035. The roadmap Leidos developed gives Hanford the tools necessary to meet these requirements while maximizing the natural cycle-out of fleet vehicles and minimizing power augmentation.
The Hanford site is a complex and highly-rural operation with a critical environmental remediation mission. At 580 square-miles and with more than 1,800 fleet vehicles, the Hanford site is one of world’s largest nuclear waste cleanup projects. In 2019, Leidos and its Hanford Mission Integration Solutions (HMIS) partners were awarded a contract to support the continued environmental cleanup.
