Electric Cars can Become More Eco-Friendly Through Life Cycle Assessment

Anders Nordelöf believes that the much-discussed environmental issues associated with electric cars should be taken seriously, but thinks that more focus is needed on solving the issues -- not on discussing whether electric cars should exist at all. Here, life cycle assessment is an important tool.

It is time to stop discussing whether electric cars are good or bad. Instead industry, authorities and policy-makers need to work together to make them as eco-friendly as possible. This is the view taken by Anders Nordelöf, a researcher at Chalmers University of Technology. In a recent thesis, he provides concrete
