GHG reduction potential and costs of LDV technologies, II
27 April 2012 workshop for regulators, manufacturers, and others working on these issues in the EU in the 2020–25 time frame.
Second in a workshop series for regulators, manufacturers, fleets, academics and NGOs to discuss greenhouse gas reduction potential for light-duty vehicles and projected technology costs in the 2020–25 time frame. (See summary and materials for the first workshop, held in February 2012, here.)
The agenda includes: summaries of technical assessments in the context of the US 2012-16 and 2017-25 GHG regulations for light-duty vehicles and of the methodology and results of Ricardo vehicle simulations and FEV cost analysis Phase 1 for the European market; methodology and results of Phase 2 of the FEV project; an overview of methodologies and results of recent cost assessments of lightweighting as a measure to reduce GHG emissions; and preliminary cost curves summarizing GHG reduction potentials and costs for the European light-duty new vehicle fleet.
