Project Summary

This project integrates energy and economic system modelling approaches to investigate the crucial question of who ultimately pays for the costs of upgrading the power network to facilitate the intended rollout of EVs. Our approach facilitates consideration of a range of indirect, and possibly unanticipated and unintended, consequences of network development for EVs through impacts on markets, prices and incomes across the economy. Such effects may affect both the actual pathway of the rollout, and who ultimately pays for required actions. The project involves collaboration between the University of Strathclyde’s Centre for Energy Policy and Scottish Power Energy Networks.
