    Abstract

    This research presents a comprehensive analysis of electric vehicle (EV) proliferation factors and various monetary and non-monetary value streams emerging in the EV domain. A comprehensive mathematical model is implemented to study EV proliferation and the resulting market share applicable to any geography and jurisdictional regime. Further, a novel framework is presented to analyze the interdependency between EV proliferation factors and value streams. The proposed model and framework can be leveraged to quantifiably evaluate the timeline available for grid operators to accommodate EV growth while utilizing those as Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) to improve grid reliability, commercial value, and environmental benefits. Compared to the previous studies, the analysis indicated that if all the factors which impact EV proliferation are addressed simultaneously, EV market share can surpass the internal combustion engine vehicle (ICV) in as quickly as 15–20 years. The study also highlighted the importance of policy making around EVs, which can offset EV market share by up to 10% between two countries following similar sustainability goals. Therefore, the study also helps aid decision making around policies and technology investments by public and private sector organizations in the space of EV.
