    The UK and Scottish Governments have set ambitious targets for the roll out of electric vehicles (EVs). The predicted rapid expansion in EV ownership over the next couple of decades will see a shift in demand away from petrol and diesel fuels and towards electricity. The mass roll out of EVs is likely to require upgrades to the electricity network itself, which will carry significant costs. The Centre for Energy Policy is partnering with SP Energy Networks in a National Centre for Energy Systems Integration (CESI) project that 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 roll out of EVs.
