MoveOn

To meet the climate goals, we have to change the way we use mobility. Battery electric vehicles are causing less greenhouse gases but might have disadvantages compared to internal combustion engines. People often mention the lower range and missing charging infrastructure as the main reason not to shift to e-mobility.

Task

This project aims at answering "Which came first: the chicken or the egg?" Is there only minor charging infrastructure because of few electric vehicles or vice versa?

Requirements

Experience in solving statistical problems Knowledge in market diffusion models
