Electricity proposal may result in higher bills.
While electricity usage is currently around 8 to 10 percent of the total electricity generated in California, according to the state Bureau of Land Management, by 2050 electricity demand may double to almost 19 percent of the state’s energy production.
The study estimated that in the 2040s electric car, fuel cell, and hydrogen electric cars could generate around 4 percent more electricity than current models, compared with gasoline-powered models.
“You cannot reduce [purchasing and sales of electric vehicles] by selling cars that are cheaper, because then you’ll reduce demand,” Shaffer said. “But you have to be smart about it and we have been doing that. If you can control that supply, you get a more flexible and more efficient electricity system.”
The study, which was published in the November issue of the American Journal of Public Health, examined how different levels of electric vehicle charging might affect vehicle consumption.
“We’ve only been able to compare it with gasoline cars실시간카지노, bec강원안마ause gasoline is so expensive now,” Shaffer said. “But since 2010, as of now, we’ve seen tremendous growth. We’re pretty comfortable today with the electric vehicle, because it is competitive with gasoline and therefore more economical.”
And although the study looked at how the electric vehicles are made and the battery used, it also looked at how these technologies could compete with existing vehicles.
“We were hoping to use the data and to figure out how they compete with [traditional] vehicles that people use and that [they’re] driving,” Shaffer said. “Our study is only for electric vehicle manufacturers to review and evaluate this.
“The good news is that people actually bought more electric cars last year,” Shaffer added. “We believe that demand will increase and eventually the state can absorb that growth.”
Shaffer’s research also took a look at how to make California “more affordable,” or “more efficient,” as he calls it.
The study found that California’s per-capita electricity consumption is likely around $30-40 per day, which is higher than in many other states, particularly Japan.
In terms of transportation, Shaffer said that electric vehicl온라인바카라사이트es could have a role to play.
“We’re really interested in reducing your emissions as long as you aren’t using fuel cars,” Shaffer said.
Shaffer said the electric vehicle research showed that electric vehicle sales can happen at any time, not just on a yearly basis.
