In this chapter, the potential impact on energy demand from the impending shift to electric vehicles is explored. The first sections explain the drivers behind the transition from internal combustion in transport to the use of electricity as well as some of the barriers that impede its progress. The various ways in which this is being implemented, reviewing both policy initiatives and technologies, are then assessed, while the final sections deal with the likely impacts on the existing electricity generating and distribution systems and how the expected significant increase in electricity demand from EVs may be accommodated through novel technologies and new business models.
