Brief description The electrification of the personal transport sector seems to be only a matter of time. It is important to study and model the effects of this sector now, in order to recommend decision makers on issues like standardization and infrastructure planning. Understanding and being able to predict EV driving and charging patterns will allow us to provide planning assistance for: � Effects of day-time dependent energy pricing structure on EV charging behavior � Optimal energy pricing to encourage off-peak charging � Optimal number and location of EV charging stations � Expected uptake of PHEV/EVs depending on petrol, electricity and conversion cost � Expected additional energy demand for EVs and PHEVs with day-time energy usage pattern
