    Using a recent forecast prepared by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Lesser’s analysis shows that, over the period 2018 – 2050, the electric generating plants that will charge new EVs will emit more air pollution than the same number of new internal combustion engines, even accounting for air pollution from oil refineries that manufacture gasoline.



    I am so ahead of my time.

    New report suggests broad adoption of electric vehicles may actually increase air pollution

    LOL You too dunderheads stand head and shoulders above the stupid crowd. You have reached a pinnicle of stupid that most others can only dream of. Neither of you will have any influence in the switch to EV's. The rest of the world will move on, and no one will even remember that you were so stupid concerning the renewable energy and EV's. WUWT has the same credibility as the Weekly World, that is to say, they have none.

    Hybrid vehicles may have had pole position so far in the race to a sustainable transportation future, but electric-only vehicles are about to pull even – and they’re both becoming a significant part of global vehicle sales.

    Combined worldwide sales of hybrid and plug-in electric vehicles will reach 6.6 million annual units by 2020 and become almost 7% of the total light-duty vehicle market, according to Navigant Research’s 2013-2020 Electric Vehicle Market Forecast.

    Several factors are fueling this growth, including consumer demand for less-expensive operational costs compared to gasoline-powered vehicles, consistent government policy, multiple new models from major automakers, and lower battery prices.

    Electric Vehicles Speeding Toward 7% Of All Global Sales By 2020

    As the battery technology improves, providing much more power density and lower costs, the EV's will take off. As will the sale of residential solar systems with battery storage.

    Global Plug-in Sales for Q1-2018
    2017 was a great year for Plug-ins and the pace continues: Quarter 1 deliveries of this year were 312 400 units worldwide, 59 % higher than for Q1-2017. The numbers include all global BEV and PHEV passenger cars sales, light trucks in USA/Canada, light commercial vehicles in Europe and now also light commercial vehicles in China as a new, emerging category. Plug-in hybrids (+69 %) increased faster than pure EVs (+52 %) again, PHEVs stood for 39 % for Q1-2018.

    1076 fuel-cell vehicles were delivered, 34 % more than for Q1 of last year.

    China was less impacted by delayed subsidies this year and had a strong start, BYD in particular, with their Qin and Song PHEVs. The long awaited Tesla Model-3 had over 8000 deliveries during Q1 and made it to place 10 in the global model ranking for March. The best selling model overall was the new Nissan Leaf with 22 000 deliveries, 44 % more than last year.

    The fastest growing markets in Q1 were China (+113 %), Canada (+114 %), Netherlands (+122 %), South Korea (+138 %), Spain (+118 %, Finland (+144 %), New Zealand (+99 %) and Australia (+132 %). Share leaders are Norway (as usual), where 46 % of new car sales were Plug-ins this year. Iceland comes 2nd with 26 % and Sweden 3rd with 7 % for Q1 combined. All larger economies had plug-in shares shares of 2,5 % or lower.

    This very rapid growth will be accelerated if ol' Trumpy gets us into a trade war, and the price of oil spikes upward.
