Alternative powertrains are a valuable addition to the range of energy sources which can be used in road traffic. Electric vehicles particularly facilitate the direct use of renewable energy sources in transport. We assess the environmental effects of a wide range of electric vehicles in relation to their life cycle analysis (taking into account the entire life of the vehicle) and provide a bespoke consumer consultancy service in the electromobility sector.
The following section contains a selection of our current projects in this area. Interactive versions of the results from our electric vehicle studies are also available at www.emobil-environment.de. The site also contains explanations of our methodology.
