Smart Energy SolutionsFrom planning to perspectiveAECOM's Resilient Cities InitiativeCities have become the front line formany of the world’s most pressingchallenges, from climate change,water scarcity and air quality, toeconomic disruption, public healthand social instability. The scopeof these issues extends beyondindividual departments or agencies,beyond city boundaries and beyondthe public sphere or private sector.Yet it’s essential that cities findsolutions. In the next 20 years, theworld’s urban population will grow bymore than two billion people. We arein the midst of the urban century.2Fortunately, cities have the capacityto address these global challenges— and meet local demands. At theirbest, cities have a density thatmakes transportation and housingmore efficient, reduces per capitaresource and energy use and lowerscarbon emissions. They boostindividual mobility and opportunityand drive economic growth. Theyfoster diversity, creativity and socialprogress. Building successful citiesis essential to creating a moresustainable world.Which is why we’re asking thequestion, what’s next in making citiesresilient? How do we plan for healthyurban growth?The answer lies in a new approach:a whole-systems approach tobetter prioritize projects, planahead, protect vulnerable assetsand provide sustainable growth.At AECOM we’re pursuing waysto connect the best ideas andinsight, from across communities,professions and regions and frompublic and private sectors, to helpcities overcome their challenges andbuild a brilliant future.AECOM

Theextensive zone is being developed to house morethan 2,100 high-tech companies.3Rather than design a masterplan for a singleevent — the Olympics in 2012 — we designeda masterplan for 2040. Our work on a myriad ofprojects in East London, including the originalvision that secured London’s Olympic bid, arebringing to life what has long been the UK’s mostdeprived urban area.AECOM is developing the Smart City Visionmaster plan for Visakhapatnam, India. The projectis advancing the City of Visakhapatnam’s (Vizag)efforts to make it more efficient and sustainablethrough the development of smart andinterconnected infrastructure, communicationsand data systems.Vizag was recently announced as a winner in thefi rst phase of the Government of India’s SmartCities Challenge. As an awardee of the SmartCities Challenge, financing of Vizag’s developmentand modernization efforts will be partiallysupported by the central government of theRepublic of India. Under the project, whichis funded by USTDA, AECOM and its partners aredeveloping a planning framework, developmentstrategy and set of high priority investmentprojects for smarter urban development. Theprojects will leverage innovative technologies,data analytics and delivery approaches to closegaps in public services, reduce congestion inlogistical systems and improve access to urbanamenities.

Smart Energy SolutionsCommunity Readiness for EVs andCharging InfrastructureProject OverviewTo provide Clean Fuels Ohio andthe stakeholder organizationswith a clear path for supportingthe adoption of electricvehicles, AECOM developed acomprehensive understandingof best practices, policies,codes and case studies of EVsupporting communities. Thefinal goal of this process was todevelop a set of templates formunicipalities, regional and stateorganizations, as well as privatesector stakeholders interested insupporting EV deployment.ClientClean Fuels OhioLocationCleveland and Columbus, OhioYears2011–2012Services Market analysis Demographic trends Policy studies8AECOM was engaged by Clean Fuels Ohio (a non-profitorganization) to develop an implementation plan for electricvehicles in Columbus, Cleveland and along the I-71 corridor. Theproject was designed to seamlessly integrate all of Ohio’s EVreadiness activities and stakeholders to produce a replicable,ready-to-implement deployment plan for plug-in electricvehicles, charging infrastructure, safety training, consumereducation, marketing and associated policy solutions includingzoning, code, permitting, inspection and other incentives. Asthe project lead, AECOM also integrated information from morethan 20 project partners, including local utilities, educationaland research institutions, local units of government, stateagencies and metropolitan planning councils. Concurrent to thetechnical analysis of demand, implementation best practicesand coordination of multiple team member efforts was theneed to support the development of an effective marketingprogram that would best support the implementation plan.AECOM also developed long-term forecasts for EV demandupon which to base the need for corresponding infrastructure.The effort required the analysis of demographic, economicand socioeconomic patterns across a broad region. This effortfocused on the following elements: Potential early adopter populations, geographic locations,concentration, and behavior characteristics to determinelocation of early infrastructure to support their acceptanceand adoption of the technology. Assessment of the economic incentives, barriers, andconditions needed for EV adoption to move from the EarlyAdopters to general consumer usage and support. Demand characteristics for specific zoning and land usetypes to understand the impact of EV adoption on localgovernments, employers, retail and utilities. The economic and fiscal impacts of EV adoption andinfrastructure implementation was examined to determinethe potential impact upon units of government, individuals,utilities and interested stakeholders in EV development. Opportunities and challenges posed by EV adoption relatedto utilities, electrical grids and the deployment of newtechnologies to improve environmental sustainability, gridresilience and infrastructure demands caused by EVs.AECOM

This study will be used as part ofan effort to create an electric utility business plan for theUtility’s response to customer PEV demand. Ideally, thisplan will provide information that will be used to directutility operations, business policies, and customer programdevelopment that will support customer expectations andpreferences and facilitate the utilization of PEVs in the Cityof Roseville. The study will assess various scenarios andrecommend operational and business practices that may beadopted by the Utility.AECOM completed an evidence-based projection of PEV andPEV charging technology considering established policies,market drivers, PEV availability, and anticipated technologicaladvances from 2018-2028. The resulting information, incombination with City of Roseville specific data, was thenused to model PEV uptake at the utility transformer level. Themodel outputs include PEV system peak demand impacts,system consumption impacts, CO2 impacts, feeder peakdemand impacts, and demand management impacts. Withthis information, the City of Roseville can properly serve andmanage PEV charging load and support the development ofPEV charging infrastructure.9AECOM
