Electric vehicles: Getting Off Oil Can Be Done

On average, driving an electric car emits about half as much carbon pollution as the typical gasoline car.

Imagine driving on a cleaner, domestic, oil-free fuel, at a cost that’s roughly equivalent to dollar-a-gallon gasoline. That, in essence, is the reason why thousands will gather this week at the Los Angeles Convention Center for the International Electric Vehicle Symposium. I’ll be there, speaking on a panel highlighting the crucial role electric utilities will play in breaking Big Oil’s monopoly on transportation fuels. To borrow a line from a paper we wrote on the subject: “Just as the oil industry was instrumental to the success of the internal combustion engine, the electric industry will play a central role in determining the fate of the electric vehicle.” Who would you rather buy your transportation fuel from, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, or your local utility?
