What Is Needed to Achieve Mass-Market Adoption of Plug-in Electric Vehicles in the UK?

The authors assess the need for electric vehicles in the UK, and how to predict their mass-market adoption. The early results from the Energy Technologies Institute’s Consumers, Vehicles and Energy Integration (CVEI) project are analyzed. Automobiles have long served as the primary transportation mode, and this is unlikely to change. What is changing, with the introduction of electric vehicles, is how automobiles are powered. CVEI is investigating the transition to a secure, sustainable system of electric vehicle usage with an effective charging infrastructure. The project explores how the integration of electric vehicles with energy supply systems can benefit vehicle users, manufacturers and energy suppliers.
