Cost-effectiveness and potential analysis of technologies for the reduction of fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emission of heavy-duty vehicles in the European market, in the 2020–2030 timeframe.
A concise overview of the EU's vehicle CO2 emission reduction requirements, targets for 2025–2030 that are coming under consideration, and current best projections of vehicle-specific CO2 reduction technology potential and costs in that time frame.
Discusses the use of computer simulation to certify whole-vehicle efficiency of HDVs, and compares tools used to quantify HDV CO2 emissions in the US (GEM v2.0) and EU (VECTO v2.0.3 beta; not yet used in a regulatory context).
Assesses how certain fuel-saving technologies could be implemented in VECTO, the European Union’s tool for the simulation of heavy-duty vehicle efficiency, via generic or vehicle-specific modules.
Examines reasons for the limited adoption of cost-effective fuel-saving technologies in the EU, as input to the European Commission’s policy deliberations on reducing GHG emissions from HDVs.
Report on a study commissioned by the ICCT and the Verband der Automobilindustrie of fuel efficiency improvements in the heavy-duty vehicle sector from improved trailer and tire designs by application of a new test procedure developed for the European Commission Directorate-General for Climate Action.
