Abstract The objective of the Consumers, Vehicles and Energy Integration project is to inform UK Government and European policy and to help shape energy and automotive industry products, propositions and investment strategies. Additionally, it aims to develop an integrated set of analytical tools that models future market scenarios in order to test the impact of future policy, industry and societal choices. The project is made up of two stages:
  • Stage 1 aims to characterize market and policy frameworks, business propositions, and the integrated vehicle and energy infrastructure system and technologies best suited to enabling a cost-effective UK energy system for low-carbon vehicles, using the amalgamated analytical toolset.
  •  Stage 2 aims to fill knowledge gaps and validate assumptions from Stage 1 through scientifically robust research, including real world trials with privatevehicle consumers and case studies with business fleets. A mainstream consumer uptake trial will be carried out to measure attitudes to PiVs after direct experience of them, and consumer charging trials will measure mainstream consumer PiV charging behaviours and responses to managed harging options
The first project deliverable, report D1.1 “Summary of Approach, Conceptual Design and Key Research Questions”, sets out the analytical approach being taken to the identification and assessment of system options and the tool set being used. This second project deliverable, report D4.1 “Initial Analysis of Technology, Commercial and Market Building Blocks of Energy Infrastructure”, sets out the detailed components of the framework. D4.1 comprises a report and spreadsheet. The two deliverables should be read in conjunction with each other. It should be noted that both of these reports were written for the purpose of facilitating agreement regarding the details of the approach and consequently they are quite complex. Other reports later in the project will present the information in a more accessible manner for people not closely involved with the work; those laterreports are commended to the general reader as a more suitable starting point. Nevertheless, D1.1 and D4.1 are made available for completeness

The purpose of this deliverable is to provide an initial 
  • ‘ First principles’ view of the key components or Building Blocks (BB) that need to be considered as part of understanding what technology/physical, actors/commercial, market/policy, and Customer Proposition structures are most effective to enable mass deployment and use of ULEVs, and their relative importance;
  • Guide to structure the Analytical Framework, which will be created as part of deliverable D1.2. The aim is to focusthe frameworkon areas of highest materiality, by specifyingwhich key BBs should be considered as part of each Narrativewhich will be assessed within the Analytical Framework.
This report should be read in conjunction with the associated spreadsheet of the same title, and  D1.1 (TR1006_D1.1) Summary of approach, conceptual design and key research questions.  For each Dimension, the ‘Key focus areas for the Analytical Framework’ and the ‘Areas for further research and development’ in this document are replicated in D1.1, section 4.
