Abstract:The transportation sector plays a significant role in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Over the last decades, GHG emissions have increased dramatically, which brings the need to transform the transportation sector and replace Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) with low and zero-emission vehicles. The agent-based simulation that has been created, Adoption Dynamics Analysis Model for Electric Vehicles (“Adam & EV”), offers an overview of the dynamics and influences between different elements in the electric vehicle (EV) market. Its primary goal is to accelerate the transition towards EVs to reduce emissions while minimizing the cost of incentives. It is mainly focused on the decision-making process for EV consumers and shows trends and relations of various parameters like the mentioned ones. Finally, it supports stakeholders in decision making regarding EVs by functioning as a validation tool for future scenarios.
