Fossil fuel depletion and greenhouse gas emission from the burning of fossil fuels motivates policymakers to find an alternative road transport system. Electric vehicles (EVs) are considered as one of the best solutions in road transportation system as EVs can reduce the dependence on fossil fuel and diminish transportation-related emissions from carbon dioxide emission and other pollutants. The key issue in this system is recharging the EV batteries before they are exhausted. Thus, charging stations (CS) should be carefully located to ensure that EV users can access the stations within their driving range. This study represents a survey of the literature focused on the numerous optimization techniques employed from the last decade to determine the optimal EVCS placement and sizing problems.
