Diffusion Dynamics of Electric Cars and Adaptive Policy: Towards an Empirical Based Simulation

  • Conference paper

Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC,volume 229)

Abstract

In this paper we apply the updated consumat approach to the case of diffusion of electric cars. We will discuss how data from a large sample can be used to parameterize a number of main behavioural drivers, and how these relate to behavioural processes. At this stage we explain how the data fit in the framework, and whereas a model is currently under development, first simulation results are to be available first during the ESSA conference.
