Understanding Electric Vehicles Usage and the Role of ITS: The North East England Electric Vehicle and Infrastructure Trials

The paper gives an update on the strategy and in-depth results from the two and a half years of operation of the trials in observing and monitoring the deployment of electric vehicles and the associated support and charging infrastructure in the North East. It provides an update and overview of the progress with the North East of England trials in the United Kingdom (UK) and provide an insight into how early adopters are using their vehicle. It discusses the driving and importantly their charging behaviour with a large number of charging points available to them. Moreover the implications and opportunities for effectively utilising intelligent transportation system (ITS) tools and services to better manage journey planning, navigation, range estimation and charging operations will be presented utilising the knowledge gained in the project.
