Abstract The Plug-in Vehicle Economics and Infrastructure: Economics and Carbon Benefits project is a strategic level analysis of the potential size of the market for plug-in vehicles, the total level of investment needed and the total carbon offset for the UK.

This report provides an in-depth qualitative viability analysis (supported by initial quantitative estimates) of the generic business models which may be effective during the initial launch / take-off of a plug-in vehicle market in the UK. It covers:
  • Methodology - this section describes the methodology, defines the business models considered, and outlines the scenarios used in the business model assessment.
  • Business viability summary - this section summarises the viability of the business models for each scenario highlighting the main reasons behind each assessment, taken from the more detailed analysis.
  • Business model analysis - this section gives detailed analysis of each business model in a consistent format that describes current and analogous experience, enablers, barriers, socio-economic benefits, strategic risk, political risk, subsidy, and legislation
  • Appendices - including take-up forecasts, sources, a list of interviewees, analysis of the differences between BEVs, REEVs and PHEVs, and a summary of relevant subsidy and legislation

    This project was undertaken and delivered prior to 2012, the results of this project were correct at the time of publication and may contain, or be based on, information or assumptions which have subsequently changed.
