Modeling Electric Vehicle Adoption and Policy in Switzerland

This project aims to develop a new dynamic structural econometric model of vehicle choice and driving, which will be applied to data on the Swiss vehicle fleet. The model will be structural in that it will estimate the parameters of a modeled consumer utility function and firm profit function in equilibrium in the market. This model can be used to run counterfactual simulations with a variety of different policy and technology assumptions to explore the most important determinants of electric vehicle adoption and subsequent emissions.
