    Description: There is huge potential for electric vehicles across the world. Over one million new plug in vehicles are projected to hit the roads in 2017. The engineering challenge this poses for electricity systems are well documented, but there is much less work on the business model challenge. How do we find new business models that maximise air quality benefits, protect the grid, and give consumers a fair deal? The Innovation Interface report produced by the University of Leeds, tackles these questions head on. Researchers explored how city governments, car companies, and utilities can work together to solve problems of infrastructure stress, respond to the changing mobility preferences of citizens, and charge vehicles with the greenest power possible. In this webinar the report’s lead author, Dr Stephen Hall will share the results of this work, the new business models generated, the barriers still to be overcome, and the system challenges the research presents.
