D1.1. Summary of approach, conceptual design and key research questions

This report represents Deliverable D1.1, Summary of Approach, Conceptual Design and Key Research Questions.

The purpose of this report is to set out the analytical approach being taken to the identification and assessment of system options, and the tool set being used.

This report should be read in conjunction with report D4.1, “Initial Analysis of Technology, Commercial and Market Building Blocks of Energy Infrastructure”, which sets out the detailed components of the framework.

It should be noted that both of these reports (D1.1 and D4.1) were written for the purpose of facilitating agreement regarding the details of the approach and consequently they are quite complex. Other reports later in the project will present the information in a more accessible manner for people not closely involved with the work; those later reports are commended to the general reader as a more suitable starting point. Nevertheless, D1.1 and D4.1 are made available for completeness.

 

D1.3. Market Design and System Integration (summary report)

This report represents Deliverable D1.3, Market Design and System Integration. The purpose of this report is to illustrate structures that can facilitate efficient, mass-market, deployment and use of Ultra-Low Emission Vehicles (ULEV) and their integration into the energy system and to help inform the high level design parameters of the trial to be conducted in Stage 2 of the project. This document should be read in conjunction with the D4.2 Final Analysis of Technology, Commercial and Market Building Blocks for Energy Infrastructure Report, from WP4 as the information in D4.2 has been used to inform the scope of analysis conducted in WP1a. From the review of evidence to date it was clear that there had been limited work undertaken to explore how mass-market roll-out and use of ULEVs could be facilitated when considering a more holistic assessment across the four key dimensions of the:

  • Customer Proposition.
  • Physical Supply Chain.
  • Commercial Value Chain.
  • Market and Policy Framework.

D1.4. Stage 2 Trial Design, Methodology and Business Case

This report represents Deliverable 1.4: Stage 2 Trial Design, Methodology and Business Case. The purpose of this report is to communicate the proposed design of research activities to be conducted in Stage 2 of the project. There are six parts to this report: Part 1: Overview of Stage 2, Part 2: Consumer Uptake Trial, Part 3: Consumer Charging Trial, Part 4: Fleet Study, Part 5: Analytical Tool, Part 6: Commercial Submission.

Part 1 provides an overview of the work package and task structure of work to be completed in Stage 2 of the CVEI project, together with the approach to health and safety, to data privacy and security management. In addition, the dissemination strategy is included, describing the approach for maximising the impact of the project outputs. The proposal for Stage 2 reflects collaborative development involving TRL, Baringa, Element Energy, Cenex, EV Connect,  EDF, Behavioural Insights (BIT), Shell and the ETI. The detailed rationale and technical design of each element of the work are presented in Parts 2 to 5. Full details of the project timeline and costs were provided as Part 6 of this deliverable (Commercial Submission), but are not included in this document.

 

D2.1. Consumer attitudes and behaviours report

This report represents Deliverable 2.1, Consumer Attitudes and Behaviours. The purpose of this report is to provide understanding of consumer attitudes towards ULEV adoption including detail of existing and new barriers to adoption; to capture and discuss lessons learnt from previous consumer trials to identify risks and develop recommendations to mitigate the risks; and to qualitatively explore consumer attitudes to managed charging scenarios (with consumers who have experience of a BEV or PHEV). Each chapter of this Report provides a summary of the overall results from the individual research activities. These are collated into an overall key findings section within the report (Section 6). In the Executive Summary, only the key findings for input into other areas of the project are summarised.

D3.1. Battery Cost and Performance and Battery Management System Capability Report and Battery Database (Report and Excel model)

This report represents Deliverable D3.1, Battery Cost and Performance and Battery Management System Capability Report and Battery Database. The purpose of this report is capture the approach proposed to develop cost and performance projections for automotive batteries to 2050. A brief explanation of the battery components and working principles is provided before the overall data collection and modelling methodology are described. This is followed by a presentation of the cost and energy density projections for automotive battery packs. Several scenarios have been developed for use in the wider modelling framework of the CVEI project. The report also includes an assessment of Battery Management Systems (BMS), their current features and potential additional capabilities required to provide tighter integration of electric vehicles (EVs) into the electricity system.

The separate spreadsheet (accompanying this report) provides more detail in the form of the Battery Cost and Performance Database.


D4.1. Initial Analysis of Technology, Commercial and Market Building Blocks for Energy Infrastructure  (Report and Excel model)

The first project deliverable, report D1.1 “Summary of Approach, Conceptual Design and Key Research Questions”, sets out the analytical approach being taken to the identification and assessment of system options and the tool set being used.

This second project deliverable, report D4.1 “Initial Analysis of Technology, Commercial and Market Building Blocks of Energy Infrastructure”, sets out the detailed components of the framework. D4.1 comprises a report and spreadsheet.

The two deliverables should be read in conjunction with each other.

It should be noted that both of these reports were written for the purpose of facilitating agreement regarding the details of the approach and consequently they are quite complex. Other reports later in the project will present the information in a more accessible manner for people not closely involved with the work; those later reports are commended to the general reader as a more suitable starting point. Nevertheless, D1.1 and D4.1 are made available for completeness.

 

D4.2. Final Analysis of Technology, Commercial and Market Building Blocks for Energy Infrastructure  (Report and Excel model)

This report represents Deliverable D4.2, Final Analysis of Technology, Commercial and Market Building Blocks for Energy Infrastructure. The purpose of this report is to provide:

  • A ‘first principles’ view of the key components or Building Blocks (BB) that are considered as part of understanding what technology/physical, actors/commercial, market/policy, and Customer Proposition structures are most effective in enabling mass deployment and use of ULEVs, and their relative importance.
  • A systematic allocation of the BBs to the Narratives, in such a way as to focus the framework on the areas of highest materiality, providing the basis for the analysis reported in the separate D1.3 Market Design and System Integration Report.

The separate spreadsheet (accompanying this report) provides more details of the building blocks themselves.
