Assessing the feasibility of carbon dioxide mitigation options in terms of energy usage

Nature Energy, Published online: 06 July 2020; doi:10.1038/s41560-020-0646-1Carbon emission reduction measures have widely differing energy consumptions that have not been systematically compared. Babacan et al. estimate comparable energy use per unit emission reduction of various emission reduction measures, from efficiency improvements to renewable...

Trade-offs between automation and light vehicle electrification

Nature Energy, Published online: 29 June 2020; doi:10.1038/s41560-020-0644-3Autonomous driving is being implemented in electric vehicles, but its energy impact is unclear. Here the authors build physics models to analyse the energy demand of autonomous electric vehicles and suggest that the influences of automation on vehicle range and battery longevity...

Balanced news for long-term growth

Nature Energy, Published online: 29 June 2020; doi:10.1038/s41560-020-0649-yChina has the world’s most ambitious plan to expand nuclear power production to boost its economic growth. Now research shows that a concerted effort to control news framing may be playing an essential role in cultivating public acceptance of nuclear risk, helping to ensure...

Emissions benefits of electric vehicles in Uber and Lyft ride-hailing services

Nature Energy, Published online: 29 June 2020; doi:10.1038/s41560-020-0632-7Use of electric vehicles in ride-hailing services such as Uber and Lyft is rising but their impact on environment and emissions remains difficult to assess. Using data from more than 100,000 rides, Alan Jenn shows the substantial emission reduction potential of electric vehicle...

Ultrafast ion transport at a cathode–electrolyte interface and its strong dependence on salt solvation

Nature Energy, Published online: 29 June 2020; doi:10.1038/s41560-020-0647-0Understanding Li transport is important in the development of fast-rate batteries. Here the authors uncover an ultrafast charge transfer across a cathode–electrolyte interface with the aid of single-particle measurements and ascribe the solvation of electrolyte salts to be key...
