National interest in electric transportation, particularly plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), has increased dramatically, including near-daily major media exposure, incentive and research and development (R&D) language in the Energy Policy Act of 2005, and public support by several senators and other prominent public figures.

The growing interest in plug-in hybrid vehicles and the expected attention that will result from the operation of the PHEV Sprinter vans in the United States beginning in the first quarter of 2006 will continue to drive an interest in the emissions offsets that will result from transferring vehicle emissions to the power grid.

The objective of this analysis is to quantify the net resulting energy consumption and emissions — carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), volatile organic compounds (VOC), nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur dioxide (SO2), ammonia (NH3), particulate matter (PM), and mercury (Hg) — from the expansion of electric transportation in a given geographical metropolitan region. As Electric Drive Vehicle (EDV) market penetration increases, petroleum fuels are displaced by grid electricity, changing the emissions signature and energy consumption patterns.
