2014 (English)In: 2013 World Electric Vehicle Symposium and Exhibition, EVS 2014, 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
The Swedish National Procurement of Electric Vehicles and Plug-in Hybrids scheme is a technology procurement project aimed at facilitating a market introduction and market expansion in Sweden. The paper describes the development of the data collection method over the course of the project, with the aim of contributing to more efficient evaluations of demonstration fleets of electric vehicles. Combining multiple sources of data may enable a socio-technical understanding of electric vehicle operations. The methods used for data collection in the project are vehicle logbooks, GPS equipment, questionnaires and interviews. Focus groups have been carried out to validate the socio-technical findings. The paper will describe the method development process and the lessons learned are divided into three categories: avoiding misunderstandings, time-saving measures and increasing engagement.
