Energy–related CO2 emissions

  • Under a 100 percent light-duty EV sensitivity, total energy-related CO2 emissions in 2040 could be reduced by about 5 percent
  • Light-duty tailpipe emissions would reduce to zero but emissions from power generation would rise with the increase in electricity demand
  • CO2 emissions from power generation would increase by about 15 percent, with coal accounting for 60 percent of the increase
