The client has access to 433k chargers throughout Europe. We focus on the city of Berlin for a PoC.
It is not clear what are the success factors of an electric vehicle (EV) charger. Therefore, the proper location of new charging stations is unknown. Additionally, EV users can not schedule their charging due to the lack of ML.
Among others, prediction of hourly charger utilization leads to: identification of best location for new chargers; charging scheduling for EV users; better city planning.
