Project Description

EV-ME is a program that allows electric vehicles users to manage their battery charge smartly. It is an app that EV users download and they can view all available charging stations in Canberra. Users can book the chargers ahead of time so they avoid range anxiety and parking anxiety. This will encourage more consumers of EVs because of the convenience of booking parking. Fines can be applied to people who park in booked parking spots, and to people who abuse the booking system (book parking but don't use it).

Charging Electric Vehicles in the ACT

The ACT’s zero-emission vehicle strategy includes several incentives to purchase EVs, as well as a plan to expand the public charging network to 180 charging stations by 2025. To build this network of charging stations, it is important that government understands where the greatest need for chargers is across the territory. How can this be measured, and how can we assess the effectiveness of public EV chargers in Canberra?
