A conceptual representation of short-term and long-term decision-making in the roll-out and exploitation of public EV charging infrastructure in neighborhoods

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentationAcademic


In this presentation, we conceptualize a decision-making mechanism for the future roll-out of EV charging infrastructure, our main question being ‘How can the decision landscape of EV infrastructure roll-out be represented to prioritize charging management strategies between neighbourhoods?’

The goal of our study is to conceptualize a potential decision-making method in the roll-out of charging infrastructure, using four different intervention strategies (roll-out of infrastructure, smart charging, V2G, and an external battery buffer), while taking into account current grid conditions, the planned grid expansions of the grid operator and the expected growth in adoption (derived from planned policy and neighbourhood characteristics). This conceptualization can then be used in future studies to experiment with different interventions to work towards an adequate (in terms of charging comfort and grid integration) and fair (e.g. by prioritizing underdeveloped areas in the roll-out) distribution of resources. This will enable us to make an assessment of the emerging patterns in future studies, such as charging satisfaction, spillover effects and neighbourhood equity.
