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.

On a slow path towards recovery

While the worst may be over for the eurozone economy, the prospect of a quick revival in growth is limited. Activity should pick up stronger in the second half of 2024 as falling inflation supports real incomes and consumer spending, but more restrictive fiscal policy as government priorities shift from providing support to deficit reduction will drag on growth. We expect the ECB to commence with rate cuts in Q2, although growth won’t receive a boost until 2025.
