Finds that for cars, the cost for meeting a 2025 target value of 70 g/km (as measured in the New European Driving Cycle - NEDC) is between 250 and 500 euros higher than would be the case in a footprint-based CO2 target system.
Assesses charging infrastructure deployment practices, challenges, and emerging best practices in major electric vehicle markets. Statistically analyzes the relationship between public charging and electric vehicle uptake at the metropolitan area level to better discern local infrastructure variation, practices, and circumstances.
Assesses zero-emission heavy-duty vehicle technologies to support decarbonization of the freight sector in the 2025–2030 timeframe. Synthesizes data from the research literature, demonstrations, and low-volume commercial trucks regarding their potential to deliver freight with zero tailpipe emissions. Analyzes the emerging technologies by their cost of ownership and life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions for China, Europe, and the United States.
Takes a closer look at three potential alternatives for OBD regulatory requirements that can be incorporated into the China 6 proposal. The ICCT recommends adopting CA OBDII with China 6 emission standards.
Under current regulatory standards, the wide commercialization of diesel cars would significantly increase NOX and PM2.5 emissions, contributing to poor air quality and adding 150,000 premature deaths through 2050.
Evaluates the potential air-quality benefits of using shore-based electric generating facilities, as opposed to a ship's own engines, to supply power for operations (such as loading and unloading) while a ship lies berthed in port.
Analyzes and compares new-vehicle type-approval procedures in the EU and U.S. with an eye toward demonstrating how best to align regulatory requirements, customer expectations, and environmental performance.
Emissions from on-road vehicles are a significant cause of air pollution in urban areas. Beijing, where air quality has historically been poor, is taking measures to reduce emissions from the transport sector.
