Task 14 collected experiences with plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) demonstration and market introduction programs to identify lessons learned from these pioneering efforts. Task 14 is concluding and the final report will be completed in 2012 with the aim of publishing it through the International Energy Agency in order to maximize its distribution. Complete details on where to download the digital version of the Task 14 final report will be available on the IA-HEV website in the coming months.

In the meantime, the work conducted by Task 14 has built a solid foundation for the new Task 18, EV Ecosystems that is very active with a full array of opportunities for participation. Task 18 is capturing practical experiences from cities, regions, and businesses that are pioneering advanced plug-in electric vehicle (EV) pilot programs.
