LONG TERM ENERGY ALTERNATIVES FOR AUTOMOTIVE PROPULSION. SYNTHETIC FUEL VERSUS BATTERY/ELECTRIC SYSTEM
Conventional automobiles deriving fuel from coal by coal liquefaction processes are compared with electric cars using advanced batteries (such as the high temperature lithium-sulfur battery). Four comparison criteria--ease of transition from the present system, economics, energy requirements and environmental quality--were applied.
