Environmental Life Cycle Assessment of Electric Vehicles in Canada
- Plug in BC
This report compares the environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) of both Electric Vehicles and Gas Vehicles in the road transportation sector. Impact assessments are carried out at vehicle’s manufacturing (mining and assembly), use (driving) and end of life (recycling and disposal) phases. In this environmental life cycle assessment of electric vehicles in Canada, the GHG emissions and primary energy consumption are considered as the most significant impact category.
