With the rapid increase of electric vehicles (EV), their charging loads will have a significant impact on power grid. It is important to propose an appropriate electric vehicles charging strategy and establish a comprehensive evaluation method. In this paper, the charging strategy of electric vehicles is optimized by considering the users’ charging satisfaction and the consumption rate of distributed wind power, and a comprehensive evaluation system of charging strategy is proposed by considering economic indicators and ecological indicators. The evaluation results show that the improvement of electric vehicles charging strategy will reduce the charging cost by 43.7% and the carbon emissions by 5.7%.
