Hi all -

I've noticed downloads of the EV Calculator at
the Electric Auto Association of Northern
Nevada's (EAANN) have slowed of late. Well, it
has been awhile since I've posted anything to
this list so here's a 'heads-up' for EVDL list
members.

From the relevant section of the EAANN website:

EAANN member "tomofreno" discussed the physics
and engineering considerations for electric
transportation at our March 2009 meeting. He has
developed a wonderful spreadsheet - an EV
calculator - that will calculate the speed and
range for various vehicles based on a number of
variables such as battery chemistry, weight,
aerodynamics, and more. You can download the EV
Calculator in compressed MSExcel 2007 .xlsx or
MSExcel 1997 compatible versions. Both versions
work fine in the opensource OpenOffice which is
your webmaster's preferred office suite. Please
send feedback, suggestions for improvement, or
questions to tomofreno at:
tomofreno2000[AT]yahoo[DOT]com.

Please visit http://electricnevada.org/#calc for
the download links.

Also, this coming Wednesday, at 12 noon PDT,
we're scheduled to have Felix Kramer of CalCars
on as a guest panelist as well as Tony Schaefer of
PriusChat.com and ChicagoPriusGroup.com (Tony
actually owns a PHEV) on the This Week in Energy
(TWiEpodcast) http://ThisWeekinEnergy.tv (click
the 'live' link to watch and interact in the
live chatroom on Wednesday, but archived shows are
available 24/7).

And, yes, I know these are PHEV and gas-hybrid
guys, but my co-host, Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield of
Bristol, UK, is a BEV gal, as am I, well, make
that a BEV 'guy.' ;>)

And while our show is principally about general
energy news headlines, certainly, with four
plugheads on, we'll be crossing over a lot into
transportation issues on this episode.

Be well,

Course we all know it isn't just the $ dollars and cents, why we buy/or
build ourselves an EV.
And most of us "early adapters" have spent WAY more on our EV's than
would normally make sense.

But this exercise is kind of interesting
