THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPLICATIONS OF ELECTRIC VEHICLES

The paper discusses the environmental impact of electric vehicles in respect to pollutants, noise and radiation. A comparision based on in-depth studies in the United States and Britain between electric vehicles and petrol-powered vehicles is presented. The effect on the environment of generating additional energy for electric vehicles is predicted and related to the total effects of electricity generation for all requirements. Reference is made to the trends in electricity generation and supply with the growth of consumption of electricity. /Author/TRRL/
