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 private vehicle 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 charging options.
This report represents Deliverable D5.1, Supplementary Details of Design, Materials and Management Arrangements for Consumer Trials. The purpose of this report is to supplement, and where relevant, update the information in the Stage 1 deliverable D1.4, providing all necessary additional details of the design of the Consumer Trials, the printed / electronic materials to be used with Trial Participants, and the management arrangements and detailed plans.

The Consumer Uptake Trial will provide high validity measures of attitudes towards adoption of PiVs by Mainstream Consumers who have had real-world experience of using a BEV and a PHEV. This will provide robust inputs to the Analytical Framework to allow more accurate prediction of the likely future uptake of PiVs by the Mass-Market, and the resulting impact on UK aggregated EV charging demand.The data collected will advance understanding of Mainstream Consumers’ willingness to adopt and will ensure that the outputs of modelling the uptake of PiVs are as valid as possible.

This report details the rationale, methodology, design and management arrangements that will be employed for the Consumer Uptake Trial.

The deliverable sets out the proposed method for the Uptake Trial, superseding the draft method set out in D1.4. The project team developed the trial’s experimental design, recruitment strategy, piloting procedure, research instruments, trial management procedures, datacollection and data analysis approach to set out a complete method for the Uptake Trial and subsequent output (Deliverable D5.2).
