Study forecasts impact on electricity demand and emissions from introduction of EVs in state of São Paulo, Brazil
5 January 2014
A new forecasting study by researchers in Brazil has concluded that every increase of 10% electric vehicles in the São Paulo fleet corresponds to an increase of about 2% of the electricity demand in the state and a corresponding reduction of about 1.3% of the total emissions in the state. São Paulo is the main state in Brazil in terms of economy, energy and environment.
If the government of São Paulo mandated a 100% electric vehicle fleet by 2035, there would be an increase of 40 million MWh of electricity compared to the base scenario.
… in order to reach these goals it is necessary that stricter policies for the transportation sector are adopted by São Paulo, as this sector concentrates the largest emissions of the state. One of them would be the use of vehicles powered by electricity, as presented in this work, which proved effective in the environmental perspective. Other policies related to other consumer sectors would contribute to achieving the goals of reducing the greenhouse gases.—Dias et al.
