Venue: The Technology and Innovation Centre

The UK and Scottish Governments have set ambitious targets for the roll-out of electric vehicles (EVs). With that comes a shift in demand away from petrol and diesel fuels and towards electricity, which has major impacts for the electricity system.

The Centre for Energy Policy has conducted research on how the costs of network upgrades, set against the benefits of EV roll-out, will impact across the UK economy.  This has a particular focus on how GDP, activity in different industries and household incomes may be impacted.

This roundtable event provides an opportunity to bring together key policy stakeholders.  We will use the findings of our work as the basis for discussion to consider the implications for future research and policy design.

The research that this event will discuss has been funded by the CESi (the EPSRC Centre for Energy Systems Integration)  Briefing documents for the event are available here and here.

Who should attend?
