EVs and charging infrastructure

Electric car

Electric vehicles and other zero-emission cars represent one of the most important means to reduce CO2 emissions from road transport. The increasing number of electric vehicles (EVs), however, requires a corresponding continuous development of the charging infrastructure to avoid unnecessary congestion at charging stations and to provide a charging infrastructure that is acceptable for current and future EV users.

At DTU Management, we do research supporting the electrification of our society by working with consumers and operators in several different EV-related contexts. Our research reveals consumer preferences for EVs and estimates future market shares. We analyze taxation and pricing policies for EVs and how changes in technology may change demand for EVs in the future. Planning and optimising future charging infrastructure, e.g., sizing and placement of types of chargers, is another key area, as well as public investments in charging infrastructure, including trade-offs between waiting-time performance and infrastructure investments. Our research furthermore addresses the impacts of EV charging on the power grid and the need for grid reinforcements.

We work in close collaboration with national and international research institutions and industrial partners and are involved in large national and real-life European initiatives.
