Identifying locations for residential on-street electric vehicle charging infrastructure: A practical methodology for Local Government Authorities
Depending on electricity generation method, mass-market penetration of electric vehicles has the potential to dramatically reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants, and to reduce dependency on fossil fuels. This paper presents a novel methodology for Local Government Authorities (LGAs) to identify suitable locations for the initial provision of residential on-street Plug-in Electric Vehicle (PEV) charging infrastructure in urban areas. Provision of such infrastructure removes a barrier to PEV uptake. The methodology is practical for LGAs to use within limited resources because it is based on simple Geographic Information System (GIS) analysis of routinely available census and parking data to identify the spatial overlaps between areas where residents are most likely to be PEV users and areas with a high reliance on residential on-street parking. The methodology has been implemented in practice to determine a charging infrastructure installation strategy for Southampton, UK, where 128 streets (out of 1,924 in total) were recommended as suitable locations. The recommended streets were reviewed by participants possessing detailed familiarity with Southampton during a workshop and generally assessed as sensible locations for the initial installation of residential on-street charge points.

Abstract

Depending on electricity generation method, mass-market penetration of electric vehicles has the potential to dramatically reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants, and to reduce dependency on fossil fuels. This paper presents a novel methodology for Local Government Authorities (LGAs) to identify suitable locations for the initial provision of residential on-street Plug-in Electric Vehicle (PEV) charging infrastructure in urban areas. Provision of such infrastructure removes a barrier to PEV uptake. The methodology is practical for LGAs to use within limited resources because it is based on simple Geographic Information System (GIS) analysis of routinely available census and parking data to identify the spatial overlaps between areas where residents are most likely to be PEV users and areas with a high reliance on residential on-street parking. The methodology has been implemented in practice to determine a charging infrastructure installation strategy for Southampton, UK, where 128 streets (out of 1,924 in total) were recommended as suitable locations. The recommended streets were reviewed by participants possessing detailed familiarity with Southampton during a workshop and generally assessed as sensible locations for the initial installation of residential on-street charge points.
