A Review of Spatial Localization Methodologies for the Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

Publication Year: 2019

Policymakers in several countries consider electric vehicles (EV) as an alternative to fossil-fueled vehicles.  In order to allow for the development of EV, the charging infrastructure has to be set up at locations with high charging potential, identified by means of various criteria such as demand density or trip length. First, this paper presents a broad overview of publications in the domain of charging stations (CS) localization. A classification scheme is proposed regarding modeling theory and empirical application; further on, models are analyzed, distinguishing between users, route or destination centricity of the approaches and outcomes. In a second step, studies in the field of explicit spatial location planning are reviewed in more detail, that is, in terms of their target criteria and the specialization of underlying analytical processes.  With regard to the identified criteria for modeling the CS location analysis on the basis of the existing literature, it can be concluded that new and more integrated approaches should be developed in a next stage.
