Different current trends require that transport takes place in an increasingly sustainable way: the growth of population concentration in urban centers; the need for a balanced development of human society; respect for the functioning of natural ecosystems; the need for low carbon economic growth while avoiding the effects of climate change and social welfare.

Electric mobility has the potential to catalyze the development of transport contributing to help reduce green house gasses (GHG) emissions, especially in large urban centers, where the mitigation of emissions is a major challenge to be overcome.

São Paulo is the most populous municipality in Brazil, with 11.9 million inhabitants in 2014. The municipality recorded the highest concentration of road vehicles in Brazil with 8.3% of the national fleet representing 28,000 vehicles per 100,000 inhabitants. The increase in GHG emissions is among the main problems faced by the growth of the São Paulo road transportation. Compared to 2003, CO2 emissions from road transport in the municipality of São Paulo grew by 80%.

For the electric vehicles to gain large-scale applications there must be an adequate charging infrastructure. In this research we propose to measure optimal location of electric vehicle charging stations (EVCSs) in the municipality of São Paulo. We apply for a multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) method to evaluate the charging infrastructure assignment the identification of charging demand by regions and GIS tool and the GIS tool to calculate distance and mark location of the EVCS in accordance with the adopted criteria.

The results of this study can support decision makers in electric mobility projects in the region.
