Environmental Impacts of Autonomous Electric Vehicles from Different Charging Patterns

Greg A Schivley

Carnegie Mellon University

Greg Schivley is a PhD candidate in Civil & Environmental Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, with 8 years of experience as an LCA consultant. His research is focused on environmental implications of transitions in electricity generation and transportation. Greg is a proponent of open-source models, and is working to make more of his code available on GitHub. He has a MS in Civil & Environmental Engineering from CMU and a BS in Physics from Allegheny College.


The shift to autonomous electric vehicles (AEVs) has the potential to dramatically reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, largely due to a switch from petroleum fuels to low-carbon electricity. The extent to... [ view full abstract ]
