UK Electric Vehicle Energy Landscape

Energy Systems Catapult has identified 313 companies in the first scoping of the UK’s Electric Vehicle Energy Landscape. Produced as part of the Innovating for Clean Air (IfCA) project, our landscape maps the EV supply chain, from distribution & transmission to consumers.

Subsectors mapped include:

  • Distribution & transmission
  • Infrastructure
  • Energy suppliers
  • Charging
  • Electric vehicles
  • Smart mobility
  • Consumers
  • Trade & industry group

The Electric Vehicle challenge and opportunity

The UK’s energy system is rapidly changing. Transforming the energy system to be clean, secure and affordable, requires optimising solutions and innovations from a range of previously separate systems including power, heat, transport, and across the physical, digital and market systems.

In optimising the transport system, the challenge is understanding how technology, market and policy solutions contribute to the delivery of a clean, secure and affordable energy system, and understanding the infrastructure changes required to manage the rise in EV technologies and their increasing use.

This growth in the transport sector has seen a number of entrants into the arena, many of who are driving new innovations through to commercial reality.

At Energy Systems Catapult, we want to bring innovative companies together – to identify gaps in the market and synergies in their offerings – to deliver the integrated solutions that will benefit consumers.

As a result, we need clear visibility of the companies that are innovating in this space and the types of innovations that are emerging – so policy-makers, regulators, investors, and indeed innovators themselves, can remove barriers to energy system integration and drive the scale-up that will enable the UK to lead the world in energy system transformation.

We encourage collaboration between organisations to identify opportunities for working together to develop integrated solutions with other UK companies, and our energy landscapes help make this happen.

Should you be on the Electric Vehicle Landscape?

The next update for this landscape will be 30 July 2021. If you feel your organisation is missing from this landscape please contact us.

Our landscapes are available exclusively on Energy Launchpad

To view or download the landscape please head over to Energy Launchpad, our dedicated membership portal for innovators and investors actively working to transform the UK energy system. Registration is free and you can access our other energy landscapes there too. If you are an innovator, investor, or work with companies in the energy sector, we can help you to collaborate with organisations within our energy landscapes.
