The Northern Colorado Business Report announced that this coming August, Colorado State University, a known regional leader in sustainability will be one of four schools nationwide selected to receive four all-electric micro vehicles to catalyze its sustainable transportation research efforts.
These University Electric Vehicles (UEVs) will primarily be used for two research projects: a grant from the Electric Power Research Institute to analyze data from each vehicle and Fort Collins-based Bohemian Foundation for educational outreach.
The primary users will be the university motor pool who will be able to utilize a mobile environment for a unique riding experience. The vehicles are equipped with sensors allowing for data to be collected, transferred, and analyzed for research purposes. All project data will be readily available at the conclusion of the project.
