Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee

Electric vehicles: developing the market and infrastructure inquiry

Inquiry status: open

The deadline for written submissions was Friday 3 November 2017. If you would like to send a submission please contact Committee staff.

Scope of the inquiry

The Committee will be calling witnesses to provide oral evidence based on the written submissions received by the former BEIS Committee for its curtailed inquiry Electric Vehicles: Developing the Market.

We also invite written submissions in relation to the additional points below:

  • How will increased uptake of electric vehicles, to meet the Government's 2040 target to end the sale of new diesel and petrol cars, affect the electricity grid? What action is needed to manage impacts, and to make the most of opportunities afforded by vehicle-to-grid technologies?
  • How do charging infrastructure requirements differ for alternative types of vehicle, journey, and user (including fleets)?
  • How should new infrastructure for electric vehicles and associated grid reinforcements be sustainably funded?
