Assessing the willingness of Australian households for adopting home charging stations for electric vehicles

The objective of this study is to understand what factors drive household decisions to install electric vehicle charging infrastructure at home. To this end, the authors administrated an online questionnaire to 1,199 households drawn from across the state of New South Wales in Australia, who were asked to complete one of two discrete choice experiments (DCEs). The DCEs were customized based upon the type of property the recruited respondents reside in, with this being either a separate private dwelling (i.e., house) or a house/apartment belonging to a building complex. A Logit Mixed Logit model (Train, 2016), a non-parametric version of the traditional random effects discrete choice model, is used to analyse the data obtained from the two DCEs. The empirical findings suggest that both sampled populations positively value the opportunity to endow their property with EV home charging points, with those who live within apartment buildings clearly preferring having access to private charging as opposed to communal charging.
