SELECT the Future

The Sustainable Electrified Transportation (SELECT) Research Center brings together industry members and leading engineering researchers to develop solutions that match global electrified transportation challenges and opportunities.

SELECT Center members represent the broad electric transportation ecosystem spectrum, including automotive manufacturers, tier one suppliers/manufacturers, utilities, transportation agencies, national labs, infrastructure developers and government.

SELECT a rich partnership network

Meet the innovators who are helping drive the wide-scale implementation of sustainable electrified transportation for roadways (e.g., electric highways and smarter urban settings), off roadway applications, next generation air transit, and synergistic fields including automated vehicles and grid/micro grid integration.

Successful x-57 Battery Testing

December 2017: NASA and SELECT partner Electric Power Systems (EPS) have reached an important milestone this week testing the battery of the first all-electric X-plane. Initial battery thermal tests with representatives from EPS and NASA were successfully completed between Tuesday and Friday this week in the USTAR/EP Systems (EPS) funded Battery Limits and Survivability Testing (BLAST) Lab. All the equipment performed as designed and anticipated. Additional tests are planned in the coming months with EPS and other collaborators; moreover, the success of this week’s tests indicate tremendous opportunity for future collaborations and projects, grants, and contracts with USU, UPEL, and SELECT.

DOE Awards Virginia Tech and SELECT Team Members Electric Vehicle Cybersecurity Grant

In October 2018, SELECT affiliate university partner, Virginia Tech, was awarded a $3 million grant from the US Department of Energy for research on electrical vehicle charging infrastructure cybersecurity. Ryan Gerdes, principal investigator and assistant professor at Virginia tech, will lead the research in collaboration with industry researchers including vehicle and charger manufactures, utility operators, and university partners including SELECT university partner Utah State University. The collaboration will tackle key challenges in the cyber domain through resilient charging systems and software solutions. By developing systems to protect the infrastructure for fast charging, researchers can address and remedy vulnerabilities of the system while protecting user privacy
