RMI report finds substantial emissions reductions possible with smart EV charging
Green Car Congress
MARCH 8, 2022
A new report from RMI has found that optimized charging of electric vehicles, which involves automatically and strategically shifting when an EV charges, could significantly reduce transportation sector emissions, and could potentially result in an average of 800 pounds of CO? saved per vehicle annually. This is equivalent to avoiding the emissions resulting from 900 miles of driving by a typical gasoline-powered car, in addition to the emissions savings already captured by driving an EV.
