Plug-In Battery EVs vs. Conventional Vehicles: A CO2 Equivalent Emission Analysis

Here is a life cycle emissions comparison between electric vehicles and conventional internal combustion engine vehicles that I wrote with a team of other graduate students a few years ago in 2012. It might be of some use to anyone who wants to learn more about life cycle emissions analysis and comparisons. This lifetime emissions analysis includes manufacturing, vehicle operation, and disposal emissions. Notably, it also takes into account which state of the USA a person would charge his/her vehicle in, and how that the electricity generation portfolio of that state affects life cycle emissions. Anyways, feel free to download and share.
