SUSTEV - Towards a sustainable use of electric vehicles

Explore under what conditions is it likely that electric vehicles (EV) will lead to an increased number of car trips, and what are the roles of policy and infrastructure development in this process. The expected result is an understanding of the risks for increased car trips due to EVs and a roadmap for sustainable EV use.

To combat negative effects of high up-front cost and low marginal operational costs of electric vehicles, the SustEV project has built models to evaluate impacts of possible packages of policies and incentives to drive more sustainable electric vehicle use. The investigated transport service incentives included dedicated or subsidized charging, parking and shared mobility services. The project has developed a novel methodology for a travel adaptation survey to find travel-contextual adaptation patterns which have been applied in population-wide simulations to investigate the system-level impacts of the incentives that are discussed with stakeholders.
