IEEE can also provide resources to its members so they can give talks to local schools about topics such as coal-burning power plants or solar energy. If you use less electricity, you will burn less coal. Coal plants will be running for the next 30 to 40 years, so we must accept that.

MIT, Ford researchers find lightweight conventional vehicles could have lower lifecycle GHG impact than EVs depending upon location

Green Car Congress

That mix is cleaner on both the East and West coasts, with higher usage of renewable energy sources and relatively low-emissions natural gas, while in the upper Midwest there is still a much higher proportion of coal-burning power plants. In those locations, buying a lightweight car, defined as one whose structure is built largely from aluminum or specialized lightweight steel, would actually result in fewer emissions than buying a comparable electric car, the study found.

The report, “ Renewable Power Generation Costs in 2014 ”, concludes that biomass, hydropower, geothermal and onshore wind are all competitive with or cheaper than coal, oil and gas-fired power stations, even without financial support and despite falling oil prices. However, the report notes, renewable energy price improvements are not universal, and costs range widely according to resources and the availability of financing. of Cape Wind output; National Grid had agreed to buy 50%.

Methane is another potent climate warmer that needs to be targeted; capturing emissions from sources such as landfills and coal mines would benefit the climate system and the gas could then be used as a source of energy.

CMU Paper: Market-Based Mechanisms for CO2 Reduction Will Be Insufficient to Attain Mid-Century Goals

Green Car Congress

Although market-based mechanisms need to be implemented soon to establish a framework for emissions reductions, the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) team argues, the range of prices for CO 2 currently under discussion will be too low to enable achieving the longer-term targets. In the meantime, in the absence of any other regulatory constraints, new coal or gas-fired generation will be built without CO 2 emissions controls.

Perspective: The UN Approval Process for Carbon Offsets

Since 2005, when major greenhouse-gas emitters among the Kyoto signatories were issued caps on their emissions and permitted to buy credits to meet those caps, there has been more than $300 billion worth of carbon transactions. Already, European companies buy and trade their credits frequently under parameters established by the European Union, which assigns a baseline emissions level to major industries as well as future limits they have to meet.

CalCars and PHEVs Frequently Asked Questions

Tony Karrer Delicious EVdriven

Despite this, a 2003 EPRI study , assuming only $2/gallon gas , zero buying incentives, and a PHEV premium of $3-$5,000 more than standard hybrids, shows that the total lifetime cost of ownership for a PHEV will be lower than that of any other vehicle type -- so the payback will be there. But its monumentally less pollution , even on the national (half-coal) grid. See our How to Get a PHEV page for detailed information on PHEV buying options.
