Panel Discussion: A Blessing or Curse? Seeing all sides of the E-Mobility Transition and its impact on energy demand

09 Oct 2019
Vertical Stage 1, Za'abeel Hall 4
POWER PLAY (Energy)

Is treating electric vehicles as a saviour of the planet wishful thinking? Some claim it will do more harm than good. Capturing the full environmental impact of electric cars requires a complete lifecycle analysis taking all aspects into account: from pollution caused by battery production, to sourcing and recycling rare earth metals, to the conditions where the vehicles will be operating. Are the batteries charged using coal and/or hydrocarbons, and what is their efficiency in extreme climates? This debate addresses the elephant in the room to move beyond green-washing and find answers to how e-mobility delivers on its promise of being the better environmental option.
