Electric vehicle charging

Unlike other alternative fuels such as hydrogen, biofuel and alike, infrastructure required for electric vehicles demands significantly lower investment and efforts. Electricity is present in every household, workplace, shopping mall or downtown area. Compared to the existing arrangement and presence of conventional fuel stations, presence of electric vehicle charging stations in urban areas will be significantly higher. The estimates have shown an optimum of four vehicles per charging station. This is due to a characteristic electric vehicle charging process which is significantly longer and lasts up to three hours in charging stations set up on urban surfaces such as public parking lots, garages, shopping centres and alike. For meeting electricity vehicle demands, it will be necessary to ensure a significantly higher number of charging stations in the future.
