Foreign media electric car boom caused pollution concerns

Foreign media: electric vehicle pollution boom triggered concerns about the U.S. stock market center: exclusive national industry sector stocks, premarket after hours, ETF, real-time quotes Sina warrants Stocks – 27 am Beijing time, according to the British "Financial Times" reported that the EU experts warned that the electric car development means that the EU will have to considering the construction of nearly 50 power equivalent to the British Hinkley point nuclear power plant scale power station, which may cause serious pollution problems. The European Environment Agency (EEA) study shows that if a large number of electric vehicles using coal-fired power plants to charge electricity, may lead to an overall increase in the overall level of sulfur dioxide air pollution. The use of battery powered cars are widely considered more environmentally friendly than using gasoline or diesel fuel vehicles, emissions of air pollutants can make certain types of decline, such as nitrogen oxides and particulate matter, and the greenhouse effect caused by carbon dioxide. However, the European Environment Agency research project manager Magdalena Jozwicka said, this is mainly used for similar Poland coal-fired power generating countries, electric cars the possible benefits of "questionable", "although there are clear benefits and opportunities, but also has some risks." In the huge government subsidies to stimulate the past six years, sales of electric vehicles in Europe increased significantly, but as of last year accounted for only about 0.15% of the total number of passenger cars. However, EEA estimates the proportion will reach 80% by 2050, when the EU will need 150 gigawatts (GW) of the power supply for electric vehicle charging, power generation and the British plan for the construction of Hinkley point nuclear power plant is only 3.2 gw. EEA warned that this may cause heavy pressure on the electric power infrastructure of the European Union, especially in the extensive use of renewable energy, electric vehicle coordination from the demand for energy may become a major challenge. EU data show that as of 2014, wind power, hydropower and solar power has accounted for 25% of the EU’s total power generation, nuclear power accounted for 27%, but there are still about 48% of electricity from coal, natural gas and oil power generation. EEA research shows that if all the electric vehicles use electricity from coal-fired power plants, then the vehicle life cycle of carbon emissions than gasoline or diesel vehicles.
