MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – Google’s philanthropic arm, Google.org, has released a new report assessing the potential impact of broad clean-tech energy policy adoption.
The report, prepared using McKinsey & Company’s US Low Carbon Economics Tool, found that a national commitment to clean-tech innovations could result in major reductions in battery costs as well as in increases in energy density. These advances could result in EV cost of ownership dropping below that of conventional internal combustion engine vehicles by 2030, according to one model. Moreover, EVs could be built with a 300-mile range by that same year.
