A scientist at Argonne National Laboratory will host a short 15-minute public webinar on 2 March 2022 at 11 a.m. CT that will compare the greenhouse gas emissions of electric vs. conventional vehicles. Register here.
Electric vehicles (EVs) tend to generate fewer greenhouse gas emissions than conventional vehicles. But the details matter: How is the electricity for EVs produced? With coal, natural gas or hydropower? And what materials are powering the EVs’ batteries?
In this webinar, Jarod Kelly, principal energy systems analyst, will discuss the environmental trade-offs in owning an EV vs. a conventional vehicle. He will also show how Argonne’s free tool—the Greenhouse Gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy Use in Technologies (GREET) model—can track how nearly any vehicle, fuel, or material affects the environment.
