Lesson Background HTML

As electric vehicles (EVs) become more common around the world, provision of public charging infrastructure will become a more pressing issues for localities. However, since widespread adoption of electric vehicles is still relatively new, researchers have conducted comparatively little research on real-world performance of charging infrastructure. 

A research team based at the Institute of Transport Research in Berlin, Germany studied the real-world performance of public electric vehicle charging infrastructure. To do this, the team first collected data about charging stations in the greater Berlin area. Specifically, the team collected location and “charging event” information between December 2016 and March 2018 for EV charging stations newly installed by two operators. The team analyzed charging behavior and other relevant information to understand the real-world performance and utilization of public charging infrastructure in Berlin.
