What is it about?

The smart public charging stations for plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) are being installed around us. However, we seldom analyze if these charging stations are used efficiently. We have performed a pattern analysis on the daily observed charging profiles of the PEV users. We explain the inefficiency in the operations of charging stations.

Why is it important?

It is important to understand the public resources need to be used efficiently. Although the PEVs are supposed to be the cleaner modes of personal transportation. The charging stations, installed for the public use, are currently not being used efficiently. Most PEV uses use the charging stations mostly for parking and not for charging.
