Evaluation, based on leading technology effectiveness, technology cost, and fuel price data, of payback periods for the efficiency technologies analyzed in a companion paper on tractor-trailer technology potential.
Assesses, through simulation modeling, the potential of various efficiency technologies to improve tractor-trailer efficiency in long-haul applications, 2020–2030.
Analysis of data, technologies, and regulatory design considerations related to establishing efficiency standards for commercial heavy-duty pickups and vans.
Assesses the energy-use breakdown of US EPA 2010 compliant heavy-duty diesel engines and characterizes engine fueling maps for use in vehicle efficiency simulation tools.
Identifies six certification options, using Phase 1 and publicly expressed industry viewpoints as a guide, and evaluates them based on seven criteria developed to compare the certification procedures’ relative merits.
Reports on the workshop “Emerging Technologies for Heavy-Duty Vehicle Fuel Efficiency” convened in July 2014 by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy and the International Council on Clean Transportation.
Builds on recent research on the integration of trailers into HDV fuel consumption and GHG emissions regulations to conclude that the U.S. Phase 2 rule presents an opportunity to capture substantial and highly cost-effective efficiency gains from technology improvements.
