The Royal Academy of Engineering in the UK has come out with a new report declaring that the changes in our energy use patterns need to go well beyond ground transportation to include cleaner power generation and the way we use our cars. A transition away from coal-fired power plants and increased use of programs like car sharing would help. RAE also criticizes the first wave of "smart meters" being rolled in the UK because they are not capable of managing EV charging. As a result they will be prematurely obsolete.
