Comparative LCA of Electric Mopeds Versus Internal Combustion Mopeds 2001-01-3291

Mopeds offer advantages in urban areas with traffic congestion and parking problems. Moreover, Electric Mopeds are No Emission Vehicles and therefore they do not increase urban atmospheric pollution. Their use, however, does imply some trade-off effects.
The present study was developed by CESI for ENEL (the most important Italian company in electric power generation) and had the aim of comparing the environmental performance of electric mopeds versus traditional internal combustion engine mopeds fuelled with RFG 1% benzene. To allow a complete analysis of the environmental impacts consequent to the use of the two alternative vehicles, a comparative LCA was performed. The vehicles considered were a moped 50-cm3 4-stroke, and the corresponding electric model, equipped with advanced lead - acid batteries.
