Research project

Electromobility LAb Norway (ELAN)

The main purpose of the ELAN project is enhanced and accurate knowledge on the diffusion of electric vehicles and on the innovations and strategies required to reach Norway’s ambitious national goals for the low emission society.

ELAN will be a four-year long project between 2017 and 2020. Project leader is Erik Figenbaum, TØI.

Using state of the art research methods, the project will monitor and take advantage of the extraordinary battery electric vehicle market development taking place in Norway.

The research objective of ELAN is: enhanced knowledge on the potential for replacing the sales of ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) passenger vehicles completely with electric vehicles by 2025, as suggested in the latest Norwegian National Transport Plan, the prerequisites for achieving such a target, and the short and long term societal consequences of doing so.

We are currently conducting a survey among Norwegian car drivers.
