Abstract

The resources of the fossil energy in the world become exhausted, due to this reason necessity for research in different alternative energy resources arises. One of these kinds of energy is electric energy. It is possible to use electric energy in individual motor vehicles accumulating it in accumulators. It is possible to cover 120-150 km with an updated electric car what is sufficient for every day usage, especially in the conditions of cities. For application in Latvian conditions rebuilt electromobiles are advisable. The operation costs of such electromobiles are 3-4 times lower than for fossil energy automobiles, but CO2 emissions are localized in the place of energy production and globally reduced at least 10 times.

Keyword(s): Electric energy, electric motor vehicles, electromobiles, economic efficiency, ecological contribution
