There is a need for knowledge about how the electrification of transport can be achieved, and the implications for the wider economy.
This project considers the electrification of the transport sector as one way to realize goals in the field of sustainability, and takes a comprehensive system-wide perspective on regulatory issues and the implications of such a change would have for social welfare and affected industries.
Electrification of the transport sector makes the transportation system and the electricity market increasingly entwined, highlighting a need for improved coordination and collaboration between different policy fields and institutions. We assess different policy packages and explore the effects on the electricity market and the transportation sector.
The output of the project is expected to provide knowledge which is essential for making the right investment decisions in electricity production capacities, in charging technologies, in the grids, and in the market for EVs, as well as for efficient transportation planning.
