Planning for EV Charging Infrastructure

Understanding how electric vehicle owners interacted with the road network to plan for charging infrastructure in the future.

With a third of carbon emissions coming from transport, increasing EV ownership has become a strategy in trying to reduce emissions. One of the biggest challenges to increased EV ownership is to building enough infrastructure (e.g., charging stations) to help current EV owners as well as those who are hesitant in owning one due to range anxiety, especially on long trips as depicted in the images.

To prepare for these changes, the customer had a look at:

  • Trip times
  • The volume of cars
  • Battery charge percentages
  • Stopping locations and lengths
  • Number of EVs on the road
  • The type of vehicle
Hourly breakdown, trip times, distances, and volume data of vehicles travelling to Sydney.

By understanding these factors, they could build infrastructure to support the uptake of EVs in order to maximise charger utility.
