Electrical Grid and Energy Modeling

We have developed intensive models to understand the transmission, distribution, and emissions impacts of electrical vehicle charging.

Green Electricity (2011-2012)


Plug-in electric vehicles produce limited or nonexistent tailpipe emissions, but upstream emissions from the electricity used to run them are highly variable depending on the source.

Electric Vehicle Emissions

Modeling the U.S. electric grid in order to estimate current and future emissions from EVs. Uses high resolution for regions and timing of charging.
