Posted By: djhGiven that transport is a more significant climate problem than housing, and given how much time and effort we spend on here discussing the efficiency of housing, I'd have thought that an inefficient means of powering EVs was a big step in the wrong direction?
Posted By: SteamyTeaI did mention a couple of years or so back that changing our cars would be cheaper and easier than changing our housing, but we need to do both as transport and domestic usage account for about 3/4 of the nations usage
Posted By: Chris P BaconBTW you never replied to my previous question as to why not having a supercharger near you was such a deal breaker for your purchase of a Model 3?
Posted By: SteamyTeaHave had a quick look about, seems that all the worlds transport accounts for 1.6% of primary energy usage and 2.4% of delivered energy.
Posted By: SteamyTeaIt does seem a bit hard to get a definitive figure for global energy by end usage
Posted By: Chris P BaconNot sure about your figures ST.According to Wikipedia (if that can be believed) in the UK there are 2173 miles of motorway, 29,145 miles of main roads and 213,750 miles of other paved roads.Assuming that you would electrify the whole lot in both directions, then it amounts to approx. half a million miles in total (allowing for multiple carriageways) so at £1000/mile that is half a billion quid.There are approximately 35 million licensed vehicles on the roads in the UK so the cost is only about £15 per vehicle.Seems like a bargain to me (if I haven't dropped a few decimal points somewhere!).

Posted By: CWattersCost is one thing, timescales another. I think it would take decades to install it all and by then batteries will have improved making it all redundant.
