Are you familiar with the existing models for estimating the quantities of greenhouse gas, criteria pollutants, and toxins from gasoline or diesel-powered mobile sources? TRB hosted a webinar on Thursday, October 21, 2021 that provided a detailed framework for modeling the impact of electrifying the transportation fleet on air quality. Presenters discussed estimating the load requirements from electric vehicles (EV) and the generation of electricity at the grid and distribution at charging stations with updated techniques.

The slides and recording are available. 

Webinar agenda and presenters

  1. Load requirements from EVs considering different factors: Marcus Alexander, Electric Power Research Institute
  2. Generating electricity from renewable or non-renewable sources and distribution to grids: Thomas Bradley, Colorado State University
  3. Impacts of electrification on air quality under various conditions: Uarporn Nopmongcol, Ramboll
  4. Question and answer session: Eladio Knipping, Electric Power Research Institute

The first 60 minutes of the webinar will be for presentations and the final 30 minutes will be reserved for audience questions.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Determine modeling load requirements and energy consumption of EVs with varying driving behavior
  2. Identify renewable and non-renewable generation of electricity and supplying to grids
