EVUIS    Electric Vehicle Urban Infrastructure Study

EV urban infrastructure differs from other categories of EV charger installations.  EV charging infrastructure is subject to different issues and degrees of complexity depending on the ownership of the EV and the ownership of the property where the EV and its’ charger are located while they are connected and or during charging.

These charging  categories in order of increasing issues and complexity, include: 

Single Detached Dwellings (with garage, carport, drive way, or other parking within reach of the EV owner’s dwelling)
Multi-Family Dwellings (apartments, condos, coops, etc.) without individual owned parking garage or other dedicated/deeded parking space in reach of individually meterable electricity (see single Detached Dwellings)

Commercial/ Municipal Employee Parking (employee owns the EV and the parking spaces, garage or parking lot owned by the employer)

Commercial/ Municipal Fleets (parking spaces, garage, or parking lot owned by a company who also owns the EV)

Commercial Public Access (parking spaces, garage, or parking lot owned by a company that rents or provides as a courtesy to any EV owner a place to store and charge their EV)

Public/Curbside (municipality or government owned land/space, street, garage or parking lot where non employee/ public individual EV owners are permitted to put their EV in reach of a charger)
