This paper demonstrates who is at risk from diesel trucks serving warehouses. It summarizes the new science about health impacts from air pollution generated by these trucks, and it also points to available solutions that can protect community health.
Assessing the Environmental Impact of Shared Micromobility Services: A Guide for Cities is the first comprehensive guide to support cities in navigating the process of understanding emissions from shared micromobility.
Strategies for beneficial electric vehicle charging to reduce peak electricity demand and store solar energyDipo Fadeyi2023-07-05T16:55:53-04:00
This paper applies models of electricity supply and demand under widespread BEV and photovoltaic (PV) adoption to conclude that overnight BEV charging can mitigate increases in evening peak electricity demand, workplace charging can reduce peak impacts and also better utilize PV generation, and BEV adoption needs to accelerate relative to PV installation to maximize co-benefits.
