Thermodynamic Analyses of Global Carbon Dioxide Reduction Perspectives in Transport

EasyChair Preprint no. 11387

11 pagesDate: November 26, 2023


The world now recognises that the climate change problem forces us to rethink the technological configuration of every branch to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. In the case of transport, it results in wide adoption of electric vehicles. However, EVs with undisputable zero emission in situ lead to excessive CO2 emissions in the place of power generation. Thus, the broad adoption of EVs must match the current and future electricity generation capacities. A brief analysis proposed in the paper shows that current EVs with superior efficiency leads to global CO2 emission at 141 gCO2/km, while “grey” hydrogen fuel cell vehicle results in just 71 gCO2/km. Furthermore, it has been shown that intensive adoption of EVs could reach the goal of CO2 emission of 95 gCO2/km not earlier than 2050, subject to intensive use of natural gas for electricity generation using a combined thermodynamic cycle.
