The electric vehicle transition and the future of electricity demand

Topic: Electricity demand from the road vehicle sector is set to accelerate sharply in the coming decades, according to our new in-house forecasting methodology. Our results indicate that the shift to electric vehicles – battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) in particular – will generate significant changes in the energy mix of the road sector. As the composition of the road vehicle stock shifts towards vehicles that draw power from the grid, the amount of electricity consumed by the sector will increase substantially while at the same time displacing oil demand.
