The development of a System Dynamics simulation model to explore a range of scenarios for the uptake of electric vehicles (EVs) in NZ.

Working with industry experts, Ministry of Transport, New Zealand Transport Agency and academics, Synergia developed a dynamic simulation model to explore the interacting factors that affect EV uptake. The simulation model was also used to explore the implications of a range of uptake targets, test their feasibility, and highlight what would be required to meet them.

A model was developed and was used to explore the uptake requirements to meet Government policy goals.
