Abstract This article attempts to evaluate the potential of greenhouse gas emission reduction in households through the use of an electric vehicle and a photovoltaic system. The analysis is done based on a Latvian case study. Results show that introducing an additional electric vehicle load is helpful for evening peak reduction. Meanwhile the photovoltaic system can ensure 70% of daytime electricity supply in summer months. Overall the systems allow significantly improving household CO2 balance.
