Revenue Generation Models for Electric Vehicles: In-Road and Roadside Charging

State departments of transportation (DOTs) are responding to the transition to electric vehicles (EVs) with charging facilities. In addition to roadside charging stations, new technology for inductive in-road charging may increase the DOT investment in EV charging infrastructure. As electric vehicles begin to grow market share, DOTs must also consider the revenue and investment dimensions of providing EV charging infrastructure.   The objective of this research is to investigate potential revenue models related to EV charging infrastructure through the following tasks: (1) Identify EV-supporting infrastructure improvements that could be deployed by DOTs; (2) Produce a cost/benefit analysis of deploying these improvements in which the roadway user is charged for use; and (3)          Provide an analysis of the feasibility of the necessary rate structure to recover costs.
