“These findings show that CO2 emissions from the new car fleet in Europe can be reduced even if the market share of diesel cars would continue to fall in future years. In fact, a transition from diesel cars to advanced gasoline technology and either hybrid or plug-in vehicles, including gasoline plug-in hybrid and battery electric vehicles, would reduce the net costs of complying with a hypothetical 70 g/km CO2 standard for 2025.”
Overview of the transport fuels provisions in the final EU Renewable Energy Directive for 2021-2030.
Discusses the potential of zero-emission technologies to reduce emissions from non-road transport, including aviation, maritime, off-road, and rail.
A preliminary assessment of the environmental performance of new commercial supersonic transport aircraft.
Iceland's electric vehicle market is booming. With low-carbon and inexpensive electricity, high fossil fuel prices, a high urbanization rate, and almost half of prospective buyers planning to purchase an EV, Iceland could have an astonishingly clean transportation sector before long.
On June 28, China officially released the China VI emission standard for new heavy-duty vehicles. If effectively implemented, it will transition all new heavy-duty vehicles in China to soot-free emission levels.
Even though targets for low- and zero-emission vehicles are an innovative approach for EU standards, they could undercut the climate benefit of the regulation. Fortunately, with some slight modifications EU regulators could effectively promote both fuel efficiency and electrification.
Palm oil isn’t as bad for climate as you think. It’s worse.
