45 km/h scooter CO2 emission

The electric scooter with lead batteries is even with electric power from a lignite power plant better than a 4 stroke engine scooter. The red lantern of the worst has the 2 stroke engine scooter.

  Ideal addition to a car


Drive spontaneously in the city without sorrows about parking lots and traffic jams. But because of the bad noise and exhaust gas of gasoline scooters, only electric scooters are acceptable for fellowman and environment.

Even with electric power from lignite emitts the electic scooter less CO2 than the gasoline scooter.

  Lithium scooter


Until August 14th 2007, we had some test drives with lithium scooters, but no opportunity for precise consumption measurement. By the theoretical data, we assume the consumption will be 4 instead of 5 kWh/100km.

This because of the better efficiency of lithium batteries and 30 kg less weight compared to lead batteries.

  CO2 and mobility


How much greenhousegases GHG are emitted at what sort of mobility? What sort of mobility is possible according to climate change and other limiting factors?

Renault Kangoo CO2 emission city traffic Renault Kangoo CO2 emission city traffic
The Kangoo is an ideal study object about the CO2 emission of different drive concepts, because it exists as gasoline, diesel, natural gas and plug-in-hybrid vehicle.

Out of town has also the ICE internal combustion engine a good efficiency. The total superiority of the electric drive system is out of town clearly smaller.


BMW 7 hydrogen BMW 7 hydrogen
Electrolysis and liquefaction of hydrogen requires much electric power. The vehicle needs about 8 times more electric power than a plug-in-hybrid of the same size.


Bicycle CO2 emission Bicycle CO2 emission
Also the production of aliments causes the emission of GHG green house gases. So even the bicycle driver can not be spared out of a CHG emission calculation.


Economize CO2 by renewable energy Economize CO2 by renewable energy
Usually, the electric power production by renewable energy is compared with the production by fossile energy and the CO2 saving is calculated by this.


Carbon dioxide values and how they are calculated
It often happens, that different CO2 emissions are published for the same process. Overview about different methods to calculate the GHG emissions of a process.
