A new report identifies a portfolio of ambitious but feasible policies that could put the global road vehicle fleet on a pathway compatible with limiting warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius (1.7°C).
New Global Automaker Rating identifies leaders and laggards in the transition to electric vehicles While Tesla and BYD lead the pack, Volkswagen is making strong plans and rapid progress toward decarbonizing its light-duty fleet, and Toyota lags by nearly every measure. 한국어 日本 31 May 2023 (Washington, D.C.) – A new report from the International Council […]
As commercial trucks go electric, industrial scale charging infrastructure will lay the foundation for zero-emission freight
U.S. heavy-duty charging infrastructure does not all need to be built at once. Targeting investments and policy support in ‘no regrets’ freight zones will deliver quick wins 11 May (San Francisco) — A new study published today by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) assesses where, when, and how much charging infrastructure will be […]
California sets global precedent with first-ever 100 percent sales requirement for zero-emission trucks, paves the way with zero-emission fleet requirements
Today, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) approved a new rule requiring fleets operating in California to deploy an increasing percentage of zero-emission vehicles (ZEV) starting in 2024. The rule also sets a 100% zero-emission sales requirement for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles starting in model year 2036. This new rule is the first in the world to extend ZEV requirements to large commercial fleets, and it complements existing ZEV sales requirements for manufacturers while continuing California’s groundbreaking work to advance progressive ZEV policy.
Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Transportation and Air Quality issued a proposed rule to set new greenhouse gas (GHG) standards for heavy-duty vehicles sold between model years 2027 and 2032. These proposed “Phase 3” standards will dramatically reduce the climate impact of the heavy-duty sector by requiring manufacturers for the first time to sell zero-emission trucks and buses.
China, Europe, and the United States together made up about 60% of the global light-duty vehicle (LDV) market in 2021. These markets will have an outsized impact on the global electric vehicle (EV) transition and they’re all leaders in EV uptake. But there’s a yawning gap between the speed with which China and Europe are […]
Washington, DC, 22 March 2022 — Today the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) formally commences a new project, FUgitive Methane Emissions from Ships (FUMES), in collaboration with Danish-based Explicit ApS and the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO). Using in-stack continuous emissions monitoring, drones, and helicopters, the project will examine and quantify methane […]
8 March 2022 (Washington DC) – Yesterday the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Transportation and Air Quality issued a proposed rule to limit emissions of nitrogen oxides and greenhouse gases from new heavy-duty engines and vehicles. Existing pollution limits on diesel trucks were set more than twenty years ago. This Administration deserves tremendous […]
