TRB Webinar: Air Quality Impact Models for Electric Vehicle Fleets
This event occured on 2021-10-21.
This webinar presents a framework for calculating and modelling the impact of fleet electrification on air quality. The framework uses the existing models for calculating greenhouse gas emissions, criteria pollutants, and toxins from diesel and fuel-based fleets, and it evaluates the requirements for electricity on the grid and charging stations based on estimated electric vehicle consumption.
The webinar agenda:
- Load requirements from EVs considering different factors: Marcus Alexander, Electric Power Research Institute
- Generating electricity from renewable or non-renewable sources and distribution to grids: Thomas Bradley, Colorado State University
- Impacts of electrification on air quality under various conditions: John Grant, Ramboll
- Question and answer session: Eladio Knipping, Electric Power Research Institute
