Abstract

Widespread and convenient charging infrastructure is an important catalyst for electric vehicle (EV) adoption, and colleges and universities are particularly well-suited to encourage EV ownership by offering workplace charging. However, the absence of standard procedures and the collective lack of experience, combined with future uncertainty in the EV market, makes it difficult for these institutions to ensure campus charging infrastructure keeps pace with demand. This project uses EV ownership projections, interviews, surveys and utilization data analysis to develop an evaluation model. This model is then applied to Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) to produce short-term recommendations.
