A faculty member at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa predicts electric vehicles’ renewable-energy goals will be met, but a Kaua‘i EV expert disputes the goal end date.

Adoption of electric vehicles and faster generation of renewable energy by 2050 will result in 99% less fossil fuel consumed and 93% less CO2 emissions from passenger and freight vehicles on O‘ahu, wrote Katherine McKenzie, of UH-Manoa’s School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology’s Katherine McKenzie.

McKenzie’s scenario was published in World Electric Vehicle Journal on June 18. McKenzie created mathematical models of four scenarios based on projections for the switch to electric passenger and freight vehicles and renewable-power generation.
