The first in a series of SCI events exploring solutions for electrification of transportation.
In 2008 Arup and Cenex conducted a Government funded study into the scope for the UK to switch to vehicles powered by electricity from the grid through 2030. One of the key findings was that electric vehicles (EVs) offer significant reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions compared to conventional
petrol/diesel engines. Based on the 2008 grid mix, the GHG reduction was approximately 40%, with the potential reduction much greater with further decarbonisation of the UK power mix in future.
The report saw an opportunity for the UK Motor industry to take a lead in developing and deploying EV and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) technology. The Government announced its support in September 2012 with the creation of a new 'UK Energy Storage R&D Centre' for the advancement of EV and PHEV batteries. Co-funded with industry, this GB£13 million centre will capitalise on the growing EV battery market in the UK, projected to be worth GB£250 million by 2020.
