Ridiculous study. ABB currently puts the cost of carbon capture and storage from a coal plant (where it is in relatively high concentrations so easy to extract) at 25-35%. That means for 2 normal plants we need 3 CCS plant in terms of coal used. How the Danes propose doing everything else on what little energy is left is unfathomable. Furthermore what is the point in comparing electricity to petrol prices; petrol is not used to make ele3ctricity (graph 1). Poor research.
They do highlight the problem of supplying green electricity to power these vehicles. However the solution they propose, bonds for green infrastructure would go on top of the large subsidies we already pay for green energy. That is not an honest solution as it hides the greater expense that green electricity will incur.
