Report: The Potential Impact of Electric Vehicles on Alberta’s Energy Systems
By David B. Layzell, FRSC; Bastiaan Straatman, PhD
This report was originally published by Canadian Energy Systems Analysis Research (CESAR) at the University of Calgary.
To explore the implications for Alberta of plug-in electric vehicles (EVs) on energy and environmental factors (including oil and electricity demand and emissions of greenhouse gas and criteria air contaminants), three scenarios to 2040 were developed and compared to a fourth, ‘reference’ scenario. The scenario models generated numerous insights discussed in the report, many of them being relevant for policy development.
