Minimizing Urban Vehicular Emissions through Efficient Design of Electric Charging Station Network
Sam Labi and Mohammed Miralinaghi, Purdue University
The presenters discussed an approach for scheduling the deployment of EV charging stations within a long-term planning horizon and a specified budget with the goal of minimizing urban vehicular emissions. This goal is achieved by identifying optimal locations and timings not only for constructing new EV charging stations but also for repurposing existing gas stations to EV stations. The numerical experiments considered the EV driving range evolution and presented the transport decision-maker’s decision dynamics to address EV travelers needs in the transport network.
