Compares official fuel consumption values with real-world performance for 20 popular vehicle models. Officially, fuel consumption gains in these 20 models ranged from 8% to 30%. But on-road measurements indicate that 8 of the 20 showed little to no improvement in real-world fuel efficiency.
Explains the methods used to construct a global database of historical vehicle sales and facilitate the development of sales-based metrics that track progress toward clean vehicle policies and technologies.
Aims to inform the EU’s strategy for controlling CO2 emissions from heavy-duty vehicles by presenting current data on freight movement and HDV sales and statistics in the EU.
Quantifies the potential climate benefits possible if governments meet their long-term goals to decarbonize passenger vehicles with electric-drive technology.
Examines the effect that tax and other incentives in the EU have had on CO2 emissions, and identifies a clear shift over time toward tax-optimized vehicles.
Comparative analysis of HDV sales in India in terms of manufacturer market share and vehicle characteristics. Additional discussion of engine attributes aimed at developing a categorization scheme.
Analysis of testing and certification methods employed in HDV efficiency regulations worldwide, to identify test methods most appropriate for India's initial regulation in this policy area.
Investigates the contribution of black carbon from shipping to the global diesel black carbon inventory — 8% to 13% in 2010, a proportion that is not expected to decline under current and planned IMO policies.
Presents an emissions inventory based on scenarios for growth in marine vessel traffic in the U.S. Arctic in 2025. At current fuel sulfur levels, pollutant emissions from ships in the region could increase 150%–600%.
Assesses the effect on technology innovation and deployment if mandatory CO2 standards in the EU were replaced by including road transport in the EU Emissions Trading System, as some have recently proposed.
