Presenter Evan Elias is an Energy Analyst with the Planning and Innovation Division at the Oregon Department of Energy and has held this position for the last 5 years of his 26 years with the agency. Among Evans current work projects, he analyzes information and data regarding Oregon’s transportation sector fuel use, which focuses on alternative fuels and transportation electrification. He led the development of the Oregon EV Dashboard and a well-received program that provides Consumer Owned Utilities with data to help them understand where EVs are likely charging in their service territories. Evan is a strong cross agency collaborator and has worked with sister agency ODOT, to produce transit bus and school bus life cycle cost tools that assist in screening alternative fuel options. He is also a contributing author for the ODOE Biennial Energy and Biennial Zero Emission Vehicle Reports.
