Multi-objective optimization of life cycle costs, GHG emissions, and en- ergy. Application of optimization to a case study of the University of Michigan buses. Characterization of trade-oﬀ of infra- structure burden vs. battery-sizing beneﬁts. Sensitivity analysis of battery price, charge rate, and infrastructure costs. ARTIC L E I NF O ABSTRAC T Keywords: Deploying large-scale wireless charging infrastructure at bus stops to charge electric transit buses when loading Wireless charging and unloading passengers requires signiﬁcant capital investment and brings environmental and energy burdens Life cycle optimization due to charger production and deployment. Optimal siting of wireless charging bus stops is key to reducing these
