Replication package: Electric vehicle charging infrastructure

European cities are taking the lead in facilitating the rollout of charging infrastructure in various ways. The City of Stockholm, with the co-financing of the ECCENTRIC project, has used and evaluated a set of tools for deploying public and household charging infrastructure. Both types of charging infrastructure are necessary for wide-scale electrification, catering to the needs of various users and clearly communicating a commitment to meet the target of becoming fossil fuel-free by 2040. Measure implementation has generated a business model for on-street charging infrastructure that is based on a public-private partnership and a concrete process on how to develop and run an information campaign for home charging. To support other cities seeking inspiration and guidance in this field, this report brings together drivers, barriers, success factors, and expected impacts that are transferrable across local contexts in Europe. Conclusions from the project demonstrate how cities can enable electrification by taking an active role in bringing stakeholders together and providing a clear and transparent framework for them to act within. It is made evident that new business models that are being developed for wider-scale electrification make regulatory updates necessary. Electric mobility and the associated infrastructure, may it be public or private, shall be seen as a component of urban planning and shall be taken into account in future development plans.
