In a world of constant evolution toward a sustainable environment, the electric car plug-in stations are becoming a common solution. In this paper, the objective is to design a hypothetical contract between Raleigh and Belib company. Therefore, the Compensatory method defined in the Multi-attribute method is shaped to define which solution is the best between doing nothing, creating plug-in stations with a solar panel, creating plug-in stations without solar panel, creating wall chargers or creating Portable chargers. According to the results, it appears that doing nothing is completely erased from the solution statement. Finally, the paper suggests two solutions which are creating plug-in stations with a solar panel, the preferred solution, and creating plug-in stations without solar panel.

Key Words: Stations, design, change, contract, electric cars, area, risks, plug-in stations


According to some studies, sustainable environment is a problem that must be taken care of in order to preserve and enhance the future of this world. The different approaches about this concern are extremely divided and disputed. Points of view on the human impact on climate change are widely questioned. This leads us to the Paris Agreement that set some rules countries need to follow in order to change the future climate tendency. One hundred and ninety-five countries signed off this paper on December 12th 2015. Only two countries did not sign this document, the United States and Syria. United States decision to fallback in this agreement is highly discussed and it splits the citizen’s opinions in two. The main goal of this meeting is to, in the future, sustain the world temperature increase of two degrees Celsius by setting a general thread. The different countries are not pushed by this agreement but they are encouraged to follow its rules. No one is left behind and that is why the most influent ones are lead to help the developing countries.

Those rules are constraints for the citizen and the goals to reach must not create problems for them. Following this agreement, many French cities took steps forward and developed some key tools that will help their citizen to change their habits and take part in this change. Paris decided to deploy the concept of electric car self-service and increase the frequency of the public transportation.

Today, a new level of sustainable energy has been reached by the self-service plug-in stations. They are designed for both professional and private use. People who want to benefit from this service will need to buy a card for fifteen euros and then pay the electricity they will consume at the station. The cost will depend both on the timeframe and on the hour people plug-in their car.

All those tools will give a range of new possibilities for people who want to participate in the global environment change. There is still no viable plug-in station in Raleigh. This situation leads this paper to create a hypothetical contract between Belib and the city of Raleigh in order to help this city to adapt itself to this new world.
