Abstract

Fast charging is usually seen as a means to facilitate long distance driving for electric vehicles and roll-out therefore often happens with corridors in mind. Due to limited charging speeds, EV drivers usually tend to charge at home or work when the car is parked for a longer period to avoid unnecessarily time loss. However with increasing charging speeds and different modes (taxi, car sharing) also switching to electric vehicles, a different approach to fast charging is needed. This research investigates the different intentions of EV drivers at fast charging stations in inner-cities and along highways to see how usage at such stations differs to inform policy makers and charging point operators to accommodate an efficient roll-out strategy.
