IMechE -The Energy Efficiency and Carbon Dioxide Emissions of Electric Vehicles. Now a virtual Event
19th January 2022 6:30 pm
The energy efficiency, CO2 and other emissions, and costs, of different passenger car vehicle options, including electric cars, conventional gasoline cars, hydrogen fuel cell cars etc will be examined. The energy involved in manufacturing cars also add to their CO2 footprint and this also needs accounting for. The move to electric cars only makes sense if the electricity supplied comes from low carbon sources. The way in which the UK electricity system has evolved over the past few decades to become relatively low carbon is explored. Finally, the options for future freight options are also discussed.
