Title: eBike charging infrastructure (short policy brief)
Organisation: London European Partnership for Transport (LEPT)
Date uploaded: 24th April 2019

• E-bike users are older than the average population (Cherry & al., 2016).
• E-bike users travel further than regular bike users (Plazier, Witkamp, 2017).
• E-bike buyers tend to be non-cyclists (Fyhri, 2017).
• E-bike users lack access to parking and charging infrastructure. It is the main perceived reason for not using one (Astegiano, Tampere, Beckx, 2015).
• Users prefer not to store their e-bike at home or to leave it parked outside, fearing theft (Cycle BOOM report, 2016).
• Lack of public charging is slightly less of an issue than for EVs due to the battery lasting longer. Providing secure residential charging is therefore important (Ibid.).
• Integrating e-bike parking requirements in private and public planning agreements to increase their uptake.
• There is a potential for mixed charging infrastructure allowing both for e-bikes and electric cars.
