As the popularity of electric vehicles grows, experts are taking a closer look at the true environmental impact these cars have – from production to operation to disposal. Manufacturers of both alternative fuel vehicles and traditional internal combustion engine vehicles are evaluating the net-zero impact and what the future looks like.
Re-watch as Dr. Robert Freerks, consultant in fuels and lubricants at RLF Enterprises, compares EVs to conventional ICE vehicles and explores the readiness of the U.S. electric grid to support widespread adoption of EV use throughout the country.
In just one hour, you will learn about the:
- Equivalent emissions of an EV based on energy production mix across the U.S.
- Environmental impact of EV production and battery production.
- Ability of current electric grid to support widespread EV adoption.
