Abstract: Predictive Analysis and Location Planning for Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE): A Case Study of Oxford County, Ontario
As the electric vehicle (EV) gains public traction, the shift into EVs requires vigilant planning to efficiently locate electric vehicle supply Equipment (EVSE). To date, the deployment of EVSE and its spatial coverage have been largely ad hoc and sub-optimal, which may have negative consequences on EV adoption. This study provides a thorough review of criteria that have determined EVSE infrastructure location selections in different jurisdictions. The study uses original methodological insights to determine potentially most appropriate EVSE locations for Oxford County residents, commuters, visitors, and through-traffic based on descriptive methods using GIS-based models (Moroni polygons) as well as predictive assessments based on a linear model of EV adoption rates assuming 1%, 5%, 10% and 25% adoption of EVs among car owners in and around the Oxford community. The deployed methodology in this study along with a more detailed and granular data analysis on a community-by-community basis could be performed to support Canada’s electrification strategy.
