Will it ever even be possible to produce enough electric to charge millions of cars overnight at the same time? And if they manage to produce that amount wont it just pass on the emissions from the cars to the place where they produce the juice? I'm assuming solar can't be used as the source since the majority of people will be charging at night and they don't have the ability to store that kind of energy from the days 🌞, especially since the UK's weather is mostly s**t anyway. So they'll have to use nuclear, wind farm or burn the fuel, so how does that save on emissions overall? And when you consider the manufacturing processes for the amount of batteries that would have to be made just to power the UK's cars surely working on cleaner engines or fuels would be a better way forward? I'm literally guessing at all of that and I'm genuinely curious to the answers, I remember a guy years ago telling me that ethanol was the best option as it literally produces water out of the exhaust as well as increasing the power from an engine, now that could be totally wrong but I'd like to hear your guys opinions on that?
Too put it simply yes, evs are going to be far greener and efficient than burning fuel can ever be, even if they are supplied by fossil fuel power stations.
It saves on emissions because it consolidates them to a single focal point where carbon capture technology can be used.
The main issue for the UK is getting planning permission for new plants, notoriously difficult because of the nimbyism.
