What determines how climate-friendly an electric car is?

Norway is a world leader in electric cars. There is no other country where electric cars make up such a large share of new car sales as here. However, the fact that the electric car is emission-free in the use phase does not mean that the electric car itself is climate-friendly. When using Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), one can evaluate different fuels/technologies against each other in a holistic perspective. You can listen to Hanne Lerche Raadal, Head of Research, talk about LCA applied for electric cars at the #Klimakvarteret.

The #Klimakvarteret is a 15-minute digital lecture from a researcher on a topic related to climate change or climate solutions and is organized by the The Norwegian Climate Foundation .
