EV Webinar: Light-Duty Vehicle GHG Emissions

Friday, April 22, 2022

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

 Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the operation of vehicles, both Internal Combustion Engine Vehicles (ICEVs) and Electric Vehicles (EVs), contribute to climate risk. The present study describes a model developed under UH Energy sponsorship that compares GHG emissions from light duty ICEVs and EVs – specifically, passenger cars and pickup trucks. The model incorporates distinctive features for the assessment of vehicle emissions. The model is fully transparent, offering the user a clear, direct view of model components and inputs. In addition, the model is usefully dynamic, allowing variation of inputs to test user-defined scenarios. These model capabilities support vehicle GHG evaluation and also support informed public discourse concerning EV deployment. Join us April 22 as energy/sustainability expert Jim Crump presents findings from the model, a discussion sure to interest current and potential EV consumers. Register Here  More Info
