The market for electric mobility is currently comparably small and therefor still has a strong orientation towards the future. This results in the problematic of selecting relevant spatial success factors to identify meaningful areas of action. An assessment has to be conducted which rates indicators according to their direction of influence and strength regading the growth of electric mobility.
Socio-demographic, economic and transport-related data of Schleswig-Holstein’s communities are put in the mix. Examples of this dataset are the spatial setting, the development of population or the capita-per-head. From these parameters an index-score is generated to estimate the potential of charging infrastructure and to give the decision-makers a sound basis for strategic investments.
A ranking for the communities can be gained from the resulting scores. The identification of fitting areas on the macro-level resulted in good performances of larger cities plus the fringe areas of neighboring Hamburg. In a second step, potential sites for charging facilities on the micro-level can be identified with use of the derived database. Qualitative assessment of individual sites is conducted to give recommendations for the sites of actual implementation.
