A new way to reduce emissions from the transport industry

As many governments plan to phase out vehicles that rely on fossil fuels by 2050, Assistant Professor Runsen Zhang at Hiroshima University led a study of the climate mitigation strategies and policies worldwide. Zhang combined economic and transport models and data from 17 regions around the world to produce six scenarios for transportation into the year 2100 in this study.

Zhang found that while electric vehicles alone may not reduce carbon emissions but when electric vehicles are powered with renewable energy and coupled with carbon policy strategies, they can help combat climate change without sacrificing economic growth. The study also revealed why carbon pricing strategies were more significant in reducing emissions than a high preference for renewable energy sources.



Renewable energy is not only an important strategy to reduce carbon emissions but also can maintain economic stability or growth. Journal of Insight-Energy Science is an international, multi-disciplinary journal in energy sector and research. It covers all energy and related subjects in engineering and technology, and strongly focuses on energy materials, thermal sciences, energy analysis, energy modeling and prediction, integrated energy systems, energy storage, energy conversion, renewable and sustainable energy in addition to energy planning and energy management.
