  Mission * Why Vehicles Need to use Electricity > Peak oil > Climate change > Renewable energy > Smart grid > Vehicle-to-grid > Vehicle-to-home

Currently most of our electricity is generated from fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas. In the future we should transition to use of sustainable, renewable power sources such as wind, solar, hydro and biogas to generate clean green electrical power.



  • 2013.05.23 - Renewable Energy - Modern Marvels This program describes renewable energy sources including solar, wind, tidal, geothermal, and biomass. "Oil is becoming more expensive and more scarce. Its diminishing quantity affects millions on a personal and industrial level. Without oil and other fossil fuels many industries will shut down completely. ... there is new emphasis on researching renewable power sources. These resources are not only readily available, but cause less damage to the environment than their fossil (fuel) counterparts." Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) and Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) fueled with electricity from renewable energy sources can help reduce the greenhouse gas pollution caused by transportation.


  • Green Power Network - DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy "news and information on green power markets and related activities. The site provides up-to-date information on green power providers, product offerings, consumer protection issues, and policies affecting green power markets."
  • ChargePortland: electric cars, electric vehicles (EVs) and charging stations in Portland, Oregon "The City has developed a strategy to address the many issues around adoption of this new technology: "Electric Vehicles- The Portland Way” was adopted by the Portland City Council on July 20, 2010." "Climate Action Plan ... sets in place our community’s ambitious sustainability roadmap to cut our greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by the year 2050."
  • Running on Green Power! - Gouvernement du Québec "working now to make a much bigger place in Québec’s transportation system for electric vehicles. This action is also motivated by a desire to replace petroleum with renewable energy. Québec more than anyone else can use its hydroelectricity — a clean and renewable energy source — for transportation purposes."
  • Green Riverside - Green Power Premium " is a voluntary program available to all RPU electric customers interested in helping Riverside achieve and surpass its renewable energy goals. As we work together to develop energy resources like wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass, we reduce our use of fossil fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas. This is how we'll achieve a green energy future."
  • Policies plug into electric vehicle future | Renewable Northwest Project "Transportation is one of the leading causes of greenhouse gas emissions in Oregon. Plug-in electric vehicles offer an exciting solution. They have no tailpipe emissions, making them cleaner to operate than any conventional vehicle. The shift toward electric vehicle adoption, though, is just the first step. Here in Oregon, we can encourage the development and use of technology that enables the charging of electric vehicles with 100 percent renewable energy, so they generally can be zero-emissions vehicles and not powered by an energy mix that includes dirty fossil fuels."
  • Running on Green Power - ACTION PLAN FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES - government of Québec " 'As the world's fourth-largest producer of hydroelectricity, which is a green and renewable form of energy, Québec has a number of assets that will help stimulate the use of electric vehicles within its territory and make the shift towards a less oil-dependent economy,' said Minister Normandeau."
