An evolving strategy for a multi-stage placement of charging stations for electrical cars is developed. Both an incremental as well as a decremental placement decomposition are evaluated on this Maximum Covering Location Problem. We show that an incremental Genetic Algorithm benefits from problem decomposition effects of having multiple stages and shows greedy behaviour.
