COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF GREEN HOUSE GASES EMISSION IN CONVENTIONAL VEHICLES AND ELECTRIC VEHICLES
With the global warming increasing day by day, depletion of Ozone at alarming rate, Green House gases (GHGs) emissions rate not decreasing and Countries not willing to reduce industrial emissions at the expense of financial growth. Authorities have now started thinking of alternate ways to reduce pollution. Some of the few are power generation from Nuclear energy, Wave, Wind, Solar energy. Increasing the efficiency of fossil fuel plants, absorbing the carbon dioxide (CO2) emission from these plants and not letting them go to air and store them deep inside the sea. Alternate propulsion vehicle like Electric Vehicles (EV), Hydrogen-powered vehicle, Liquefied natural gas (LNG) to reduce Green House gases emissions to the atmosphere are a few steps towards reducing emissions. With increasing support from Governments worldwide viz. India, United States, China, Germany and Europe emphasis is being given to EV technology, and we may see EV replacing the conventional Gasoline and Diesel powered vehicle, we will observe a decline in sales figure of the same in coming years. Electric Vehicles (EVs), as expected to help save energy and reduce carbon die oxide emissions, are facing a rapid growth in China . A general perception is built amongst masses that Electric vehicle (EV) is Zero-emission vehicles. This study provides a comprehensive review of the emissions from EVs and whether they reduce the Green House gases. It is based on relevant published literature related to environmental more specifically to Green House gases implication of Electric vehicle. Another objective of this study is to throw light on Electric Vehicle, Battery of Electric Vehicle, Fuel Used in Electric Vehicle, Pollutions if any emitted from Electric vehicles, Life of these vehicles and Impact on Green House Gases.
