Over the last year LSE has been working on a report focused on the growth opportunities which zero emission and autonomous vehicles can present for the UK. The project has been undertaken jointly by the Grantham Research Institute and the Centre for Economic Performance. The report assesses the future markets for goods and services related to passenger vehicles, the UK’s record of innovation and makes recommendations for how the UK can seize this opportunity, across both supply and demand for vehicles.
