Fuel Cell and Battery Electric Vehicles Compared

  title={Fuel Cell and Battery Electric Vehicles Compared},
  author={Sandy Thomas},
Detailed computer simulations demonstrate that all­electric vehicles will be required to meet our energy security and climate change reduction goals. As shown in Figure 1, hybrid electric vehicles (HEV’s) and plug­in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV’s) both reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, but neither of these vehicles that still use internal combustion engines will be adequate to cut GHGs to 80% below 1990 levels, the goal set by the climate change community, even if biofuels such as… CONTINUE READING
