RUSSIA / Russia
Russian Academy of Sciences
Moscow has fallen behind the world’s push for alternative fuel development, due to a nearly ubiquitous use of gasoline vehicles. Our project seeks to determine the most economically feasible alternative fuel for Moscow’s present and future vehicle economy. To accomplish this goal we conducted a life-cycle cost analysis on three vehicles selected to represent the Moscow consumer’s buying preferences. We concluded that, at present, electric vehicles are non-viable in Moscow, while natural gas powered vehicles are practical, economical, sustainable, and take advantage of both the existing infrastructure and Russia’s enormous natural gas reserves.
