Identifies 20 cities with the highest electric vehicle uptake through 2016 and examines the associated local policies, incentives, and infrastructure that have helped spur electric vehicle sales growth.
A synopsis of key findings from previous ICCT studies relevant to a 2025–2030 standard in the EU, including technology potential and associated compliance cost, the role of electrified vehicles, and the switch to a new emissions testing procedure.
Addresses several common misconceptions about light-duty vehicle fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas standards and focuses on Australia’s proposed light-vehicle CO2 standards and the effects they may or may not have on Australian motorists.
Summarizes and analyzes preliminary data for 2016 recently released by the European Environment Agency (EEA) on CO2 emissions from new passenger cars in the EU. New cars sold in the EU in 2015 had average CO2 emissions of 118 g CO2/km, which was 1.2% lower than in 2015.
Evaluates the trajectory of GHG emissions from international aviation in the U.S. and Canada as well as the possible GHG reductions that could be made from deployment of alternative jet fuels (AJFs) within the framework of the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA).
Highlights important innovations and trends in vehicle design technology and lightweighting, many of which were not considered when the 2025 CAFE standards were finalized, but promise to be quite cost-effective.
Reviews the structure of EPA’s emission recall program for light-duty vehicles and trucks (LDV and LDT) and its effectiveness over time and also explains the recall authority, procedures, and coordination among offices.
Identifies key differences in the regulations governing certification of NOx emissions from diesel cars (Euro 6) and trucks (Euro VI) that help explain differences in their real-world emissions performance. Ultimately, an examination of the HDV regulation reveals insights that could be used to improve the LDV regulation.
This technical brief highlights important innovations and trends in downsized and turbocharged gasoline engines, several of which were not considered when the 2025 CAFE standards were finalized, but promise to be quite cost-effective.
