Electric vehicles and the new relationship between the transport and electricity sectors in Norway

Elektriske biler og den gjensidige påvirkningen mellom transport- og kraftsektorene

Electrification of the car fleet makes the electricity market and the transport system more intertwined. By applying specialized models for energy and transport together, the authors have analyzed a number of scenarios (including stress testing) for how these markets will affect each other in 2030. The authors find that the Norwegian power market as a whole is mainly robust to the challenges posed by charging of plug-in electric cars in Norway. In addition, the changes in electricity prices are not expected to significantly affect transport demand, as electricity is a small part of the costs of owning or operating an electric car.
