UKERC Energy Strategies Under Uncertainty - Perceived Uncertainty in the Demand for Electric Vehicles: A Qualitative Assessment

03 Mar 2014
Energy Strategies Under Uncertainty

This Working Paper explores the perceived uncertainties in the demand for electric vehicles in the UK, using a qualitative assessment. The research presented in this paper compliments an earlier output which involved an extensive assessment of UK and EU Government literature in order to produce a conceptual framework of the locations of uncertainty in reference to EV demand. To structure the analysis of the paper, three research objectives have been established:

  1. Identify the prominent perceived uncertainties detailed by stakeholders
  2. Determine if these perceived uncertainties match up with UK and EU Government policy
  3. Consider what insights and recommendations for policy emerge from the analysis

This work was undertaken as part of the UK Energy Strategies Under Uncertainty project.
