  • 2011 Fuel Cell Seminar presentation by C. E. Thomas, Orlando, Florida, Nov 3, 2011
  • How ’Green’ are Electric vehicles”, by C. E. Thomas, published in the International Journal of Hydrogen Energy, Vol. 37, Issue 7, pages 6053-6062, April 2012[Note: Figure 5 is not the correct Figure in the Int. J of H2 Energy publication.  See this link for the correct Figure 5.]
  • US Marginal electricity grid mixes and EV greenhouse gas emissions” by C. E. Thomas, published in the International Journal of Hydrogen Energy, Vol 37 (2012) pages 19231-19240. [This paper demonstrates that, on the average, for every BEV replacing a gasoline HEV, GHGs will increase 7.4%, while every PHEV that replaces a gasoline hybrid will increase GHGs by an average of 10%!]
