Effective charging strategies for rental BEVs

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


As Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) become more popular because of mandates or through organic growth, bottlenecks include the availability of charging facilities and the sheer time it takes to fully charge these vehicles. BEV rental agencies face the additional burden to decide on the number of vehicles to fully charge and ready to go for the next day. We develop a stochastic model to help facilitate this process. Specifically, we develop expressions for the number of additional vehicles to charge based on Uniform demand, accessible charging facilities, and the available number of partially charged vehicles.
