Google Jump-Starts Plug-In Hybrids

Climate Progress has long been a fan of plug-in hybrids as a critical climate solution for the transportation sector. Google has joined the fight, and they have put together a good video explaining both what a plug in hybrid is and what their strategy will be.

Kudos to the entire team, lead by Dan Reicher Director, Climate Change and Energy Initiatives and a former colleague of mine at the Energy Department.

    That’s cool. Any idea whether the C02 emissions they refer to take into account emissions from power plants used to supply the electricity the cars plug into?

    I’m sure they do. In California, plug ins are much lower net emissions than gasoline hybrids.
