A literature review that looks at existing EV research for the UK market and where the opportunity for Centre for Net Zero lies
17 August 2021
This document summarises published evidence about how to electrify cars and vans within the UK and where there are gaps in understanding. The document is the result of a review of more than 70 items of regularly and recently cited academic and industrial analysis, conducted by Centre for Net Zero in June and July 2021.
It follows our review of research for the decarbonisation of home heating published in June.
We have sought to prioritise accessibility – this document is therefore considerably shorter than more traditional literature or evidence reviews. We welcome feedback, particularly in cases where we have missed or misconstrued certain analysis. We intend to update this document regularly to reflect our best view.
Interim research findings uncovering the challenges of achieving inclusivity in the transition to electric vehicles and its importance in underpinning public and political support for the net zero agenda
