A comprehensive investigation of mass, aerodynamic drag, and tire rolling resistance in Europe's LDV fleet, and estimates reductions in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions that could be achieved by reducing those driving resistances.
Presents detailed results and methodology of a study using computer simulation modeling, vehicle tear-down analysis, and additional supplementary data to estimate compliance costs of potential vehicle CO2 emission standards for the European passenger car and light-commercial vehicle fleets in 2025–2030.
Extends an analysis of the gap between official and real-world fuel consumption and CO2 emission values for passenger cars in Europe and investigates the reasons for the increasing gap.
Analyzes near-term electric vehicle trends to inform on how governments might optimally evolve their electric vehicle incentive programs to sustain market growth. Assess how electric vehicle costs are reduced in the 2020—2025 timeframe to estimate when the consumer proposition tips in favor of electric vehicles in leading markets.
Analyzes emerging electric vehicle technologies in terms of their electric range, vehicle models offered, and battery capacity. Assesses potential for increased global production volume from automobile manufacturers and battery suppliers, and the implications for reduced battery pack costs through 2023.
Analyzes the state of the electric vehicle market development and the actions that are driving it. Catalogues electric vehicle promotion analysis and identifies best practice policies across the 50 most populous U.S. metropolitan area. Applies a statistical analysis to discern links between the promotion actions and electric vehicle uptake.
Assesses the impact of market and political uncertainty on the real value of financial incentives from low-carbon fuel policies. Provides a detailed policy proposal and scenario analysis for a novel financing mechanism to support ultralow-carbon fuel production in California using a contract for difference (CfD) policy.
Assesses feasibility, benefits, and costs of phasing out HFC-134a from the Chinese LDV fleet, focusing on three alternatives—HFO-1234yf, HFC-152a and CO2 (R-744)—most likely to be adopted by automakers with a global supply chain.
Current non-road regulatory programs lag behind comparable programs for on-road diesel engines, and are not stringent enough to compel the use of the best available technologies for the control of PM and NOx emissions.
Analyzes EV uptake at the city level, and assesses public charging infrastructure, model availability, and other factors to identify leading-edge markets in California. Provides a detailed analysis of the 30 California cities with the highest rates of EV penetration, examining how governments, utilities, businesses, and nonprofits are promoting EVs.
