The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) produced the Environmental Assessment of a Full Electric Transportation Portfolio to provide in-depth analysis of the environmental impact of electrifying a range of vehicles, including U.S. light-duty and medium-duty transportation and industrial equipment such as forklifts.
The study simulates emissions and air quality impacts of a significant shift from internal combustion engines to electric vehicles and equipment.
