Producing the electricity to power electric vehicles can generate emissions. But those emissions levels are far lower than the pollution emitted by conventional vehicles, and could be even lower as the electric power sector cleans up over next few decades, according to a new report issued today.
In their new white paper, the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) covers four core challenges related to public charging infrastructure and how they impact customers, site hosts, and electric companies respectively. For the purpose of this paper, interoperability is defined as the process of harmonizing of standards, technology, and practices for EV charging in a way that provides transparency for customers and encourages ease of use.
The Value of Transportation Electri?cation Three Preliminary Case Studies of Impacts on Utility Stakeholders
EPRI used a Transportation Electrification model at three different utilities to examine the effects of investments in public plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) charging infrastructure on electric vehicle...
The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) produced the Environmental Assessment of a Full Electric Transportation Portfolio to provide in-depth analysis of the environmental impact of electrifying a range of vehicles, including U.S. light-duty and medium-duty transportation and industrial equipment such as forklifts.
