UK study finds Bio-SNG could offer 90% reduction in lifecycle CO2; lower cost of carbon abatement than electrical solutions for transport applications

Green Car Congress

For transport applications, Bio-SNG is significantly more cost effective than electrical solutions (either using grid electricity - £1,000/ te CO 2 e, or presuming offshore wind derived renewable electricity - £600/ te CO 2 e). Along with all unconventional energy infrastructure development there is a need for novel financing strategies, as well as the necessary support regime.

Renewable Wind Energy: MBTA will design and construct wind energy generation turbines in eastern Massachusetts (from among Kingston, Newburyport, Bridgewater). The new Fisher buses will provide more than triple the equivalent fuel economy in all-electric mode and reduce CO2 emissions due to the extensive use of lightweight materials and the large capacity battery system. Material is being financed and procured through the New York Power Authority.

Neutral Kaitou KID @ Apr 19th 2009 4:45PM not if the electricity is from ultra efficient solar panels, hydroelectric dams or wind. Once electric cars are more common, demand for electricity will rise, and electricity producers will have to look at big generators such as dams, nuclear stations or decentralised wind turbines that feed in to the grid. Nuclear waste is a problem much harder to solve than CO2, and dams have quite an impact in the environment.

Reply ↓ ↑ report 17 DRK_ILLIDAN 1:09AM (4/24/2009) Stop makin f*kn battery powered cars there not gonna work, yeah woo zero emissions remember where the powers coming from rite now nim rods, you still have tins of co2 at the power plant. Sorry, but electrics and electric power plants are so efficient that CO2 emissions are less than gassers even when the electricity comes from coal - and a lot of electricity doesnt come from coal.

If our country is going to spend money like a drunk sailor we should have spent it on building renewable energy power plants like Wind and Geothermal. Denmark did that with Wind Power and now most of their energy comes from wind rather than oil, natural gas, or coal. Generating electricity from wind and geothermal rather than a CO2 producing sources would help alleviate that problem. Wired Home Subscribe Sections Cars 2.0
