The Electric Power Research Institute and the Natural Resources Defense Council have done a new study on plug-in hybrids and as you might expect they have found them to be a good thing. The study looked at what happens to the environment when emissions are moved from individual vehicles to power plant smokestacks if there was widespread adoption of plug-in hybrids. They found that total annual emissions of greenhouse gases would be reduced by 450 million tonnes by 2050. What they mean by widespread adoption is left unclear in the press release.
