||The Plug-in Vehicle Economics and Infrastructure: Economics and Carbon Benefits project is a strategic level analysis of the potential size of the market for plug-in vehicles, the total level of investment needed and the total carbon offset for the UK.
Transport is one of the three large users of energy and emitters of CO2 in the UK. It is expected that without transformational change, transport energy use and emissions will continue to grow with UK population and disposable income.
For Light Vehicles, our current focus is on understanding and enabling the market for plug-in vehicles; both all electric (EV) and plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV) vehicles.
This is the call for proposals for WP3, Economics and Carbon Benefits. The purpose of WP3 is to evaluate the potential role and economics of plug-in vehicles in the low carbon transport system:generate a quantified understanding of the market potential, cost models and carbon benefits case under defined scenarios of infrastructure investments, government intervention packages and finance model options across a number of key plug-in vehicle type/size/capability points
