The COIL project – (Charging point Locations)

Project overview

“The CoiL project will lay the foundations for a broader research proposal into optimal location analysis for Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure (EVCI).
A key project partner is Transport for the South East (TfSE) who are developing a strategy for ECVI rollout. This pump-priming exercise will lay the foundations for a broader research project to identify and address knowledge gaps relating to the optimisation of EVCI installation locations.
This is a complex geospatial resource allocation problem; there are many variables to consider. Given that 2030 is less than 7 years away, prioritisation must be given to areas where EVCI installation will be most beneficial, and uptake for Electric Vehicles will be greatest.”
