    The challenge facing Europe to reduce green house gas GHG emissions is considerable. Increasing the proportion of electric vehicles (EVs) in the vehicle fleet is a viable solution. Incentivisation is one approach to increasing the number of EVs on the road. The present system of incentivisation is highly contextualised with incentives being conceived and tested based on national and local requirements. This makes learning and exchange of best practice across EU borders difficult. To resolve this problem, an approach was taken to develop a methodology that would establish the transferability of best practice across European borders. A number of European city regions were compared based on the PESTLE framework. The results of this comparison highlight both similarities and differences between the regions in relation to the potential for EV uptake based on incentivisation. As part of the next steps, expert opinion will be used to establish and weight causal links between incentivisation and EV uptake create regional network analyses. This knowledge will then be transferred to a computer model that will be used to advise on future policy
    decisions. This work is part of the on-going ICVUE project funded by Intelligent Energy Europe.
