Welcome – you have reached the sign-up page for the data collection portal for the EECA Courtesy Car Project.
We are using Flip The Fleet as our data managers. There are three reasons why we have invoked Flip The Fleet:
- I need to collect and collate this information for my monthly reporting to EECA, and Flip The Fleet is a data entry portal customised to collecting EV data
- By supporting Flip The Fleet we are also supporting the EECA objectives, something that I committed to doing in the project application
- Flip the Fleet is a worthy project to be supporting in its own right, where it collects anonymised data with the aim of helping promote EV uptake in NZ. In this way, your data will have a life beyond being summarised in a report that will be read once – it will go on to help contribute to the picture of EV uptake in New Zealand.
About Flip The Fleet
Flip The Fleet is a “citizen science” community project that involves New Zealand owners of electric cars sharing their usage patterns so that trends and statics of EV usage can be collected with the aim of accelerating uptake of electric vehicles in New Zealand. This is achieved through provision of scientific data on on EV use, cost savings, efficiency, battery health and environmental benefits; helping with infrastructure: sharing data on our vehicles’ performance in New Zealand conditions so that business investment in infrastructure, public policy and our own choices maximise the benefits and pleasure of EV ownership; and informing the debate, so that we can reliably counter misconceptions about EV constraints and benefits.
In the signup process you’ll be asked that you are (1) happy to share the data with me (so that I can collate the data and share it with EECA in the reports that I submit) and (2) share it with Flip The Fleet. It’s broken up into two steps.
Step 1: Please complete the form below to provide key details about you, your vehicle and your electricity set up. Once your details are received by Flip The Fleet, they will create your personal account. This is done manually and may take a few days. Once done you will receive an invite to activate your Flip The Fleet account. Note – if there is anything that you don’t know, I will help fill in any missing details. For example, if you don’t know the model of your Leaf, you can select “I’m unsure what model”.
Uploading your monthly data
Once your account is activated, you’ll be able to upload your vehicle’s data directly into the Flip The Fleet interactive dashboard. There are also some interesting live reports that you may like to review. Uploading your vehicle’s data is done at the start of each month for the month prior. You’ll get a reminder if you forget.
Thanks for all your help
