NCSU researchers debunk conventional thinking regarding electric cars

If you think buying a hybrid, plug-in hybrid or battery electric vehicle will save the planet, think again.

Researchers at N.C. State University conducted a study that shows even a sharp increase in the use of electric drive vehicles (EDVs) would not significantly reduce emissions by 2050.

The researchers studied 108 different scenarios in a model to determine the impact EDVs would have on emissions between now and 2050 and found that, even if EDVs made up 42 percent of such vehicles in the U.S., there would be little or no reduction in the emission of key air pollutants.

Joseph DeCarolis, assistant professor of civil, construction and environmental engineering at NCSU, was the senior author of a paper published on the study’s findings.
