Electric vehicle (EV) adoption in Sweden should accelerate to achieve the 2030 domestic transport target for 70% emission reduction compared to 2010 and the 2045 national target for net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. Equitable access to socioeconomically effective charging infrastructure can increase EV attractiveness across various transport segments and is critical for both electrified personal vehicles, as well as light and heavy-duty freight vehicles.  

In this project, we conduct a comprehensive and rigorous synthesis of best available evidence from Swedish and international studies on varying charging infrastructure needs across types of vehicles and users. Project results will inform decisions in policy and businesses to improve charging roll-out strategies. The project will facilitate understanding of technological prerequisites, policy instruments, and analytical methods aiming at equitable charging infrastructure deployment in Sweden.  

This project will inform decisions in policy and businesses to improve charging infrastructure planning. It will define key research areas to further explore technological improvements, policies, and analytical methods aiming to support deployment of adequate, cost competitive and equitable charging infrastructure. More specifically, the following questions are central to the research:  

  • What are the targets and/or demand for charging infrastructure in the global literature? Are different transport sector segments and use cases adequately covered?  
  • What are the key knowledge gaps for charging infrastructure placement strategies? What are the methodological and data needs? 

The project is focused on outreach and making lessons available to planners and stakeholders through project reports and policy dialogues.

Review planning document

The methodological plan (known as the protocol) for this review that includes details about the review questions, scope and method for searching, screening, coding metadata and synthesising results is available in the PROCEED, an open access registry of titles and protocols for prospective evidence syntheses in the environmental sector. The protocol can be accessed here.

Stakeholder engagement and co-design process

To take into account policy and practice needs and to increase potential uptake of our project  findings, Swedish and international stakeholders from local authorities, academia, public agencies, private sector, and trade organizations are engaged throughout the review process.

We organised an open consultation process and received inputs on the systematic review protocol including the review scope, search terms and sources of grey literature. At a later stage, we will share preliminary findings with stakeholders to discuss relevance and clarity of the review outputs as well as future research needs. Below you can find the summary of the received stakeholder input, the final search string and a coding tree:
