Prosjektbeskrivelse (engelsk)

ENERGIX calls for research that can facilitate a transformation to environmentally sound transport systems. In particular, ENERGIX seeks focus on policies that: i) reduce greenhouse gas emissions, ii) reduce energy consumption, iii) give consideration to local environmental impact and iv) take into account the zero growth target for passenger car transport in major cities. We refer to this as a quadruple dividend of environmentally friendly transport systems.

There is a need for knowledge about how this quadruple dividend can be achieved, and the implications for the wider economy. This project considers the electrification of the transport sector as one way to realize such goals, 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, lighlighting 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.
