Reale Nutzung von Plug-in-Hybriden in Europa: Ein 2022 Update

June 17, 2022, 10 am CEST Der Kraftstoffverbrauch und damit die CO2-Emissionen von Plug-in-Hybridfahrzeugen (PHEV) hängen davon ab, wie viel sie tatsächlich elektrisch gefahren werden. Bisherige Studien zur realen Nutzung von PHEV haben gezeigt, dass sie viel weniger mit Strom fahren als in den offiziellen Werten angenommen, was im Durchschnitt zu einem zwei- bis viermal […]

Real-world usage of plug-in hybrid vehicles in Europe: A 2022 update

June 17, 2022, 4 pm CEST The fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions of plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) depend on how much they are effectively driven on electricity. Studies on the real-world usage of PHEVs have shown that they are driven much less on electricity than the official values assume, which on average results in […]

ICCT comments on EPA’s Proposed Heavy-Duty Engine and Vehicle Standards

May 10th at 10 am PT/1 pm ET In March, the EPA released its proposal for new heavy-duty engine and vehicle standards with the aim of controlling air pollution from future sales of trucks and buses. The EPA is currently accepting public comments, and the ICCT, among others, has been working to evaluate the rule […]

Emissions from ships sailing the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway in 2019

April 20, 2022 at 9 am EDT Understanding ship activity and emissions is important when crafting strategies to reduce the environmental impacts of the maritime shipping sector. ICCT recently released a new, wide-ranging inventory of emissions and fuel consumption for ships operating in the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway (GL-SLS) in 2019. In addition to CO2 […]

Recommendations for the review of the heavy-duty CO2 standards in Europe 

Thursday, April 14, 2022 3 pm–3:30 pm CEST The European Union is legally obliged to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, bound by the European Climate Law. Heavy-duty vehicles are the second highest emitting group in the transport sector, and the currently adopted CO2 emission standards fail to bring about the necessary emission reductions required. The […]

Batterie-Elektroautos und Plug-in-Hybride im Vergleich: Klimabilanz vs. staatliche Förderung

25. März 10.00 Uhr MEZ Da sie teilweise bzw. vollständig auf fossilen Kraftstoff verzichten, können Plug-in-Hybride und Batterie-Elektrofahrzeuge dazu beitragen, die Treibhausgasemissionen der deutschen Pkw-Flotte zu verringern. Auf dem Weg zur Klimaneutralität im Jahr 2045 unterstützt die Bundesregierung daher sowohl Plug-in-Hybride als auch Batterie-Elektrofahrzeuge mit Kaufprämien und Steuervorteilen. Eine neue Studie von ICCT und Fraunhofer […]

Battery-electric tractor-trailers in Europe: A total cost of ownership analysis

Advances in battery technology have enabled the application of electric drive across transport segments that are challenging to decarbonize, such as long-distance tractor-trailers. However, many uncertainties still exist concerning the total cost of operation of such vehicles, impacting their large-scale deployment. This webinar will review new research assessing the total cost of ownership of battery […]

At-the-pump costs of hydrogen fuel in India in 2030 and 2050

Renewable electrolysis hydrogen (“green” hydrogen) offers significant climate benefits, but its uptake in India’s road transport sector will depend partly on consumer price. This webinar will present findings from a study estimating the at-the-pump costs of both green hydrogen and “blue” hydrogen made from natural gas combined with carbon capture and storage in 2030 and […]

Electric Vehicles – a Win-Win for the Consumers and Climate

Electric vehicles are rapidly growing in popularity, but what does their proliferation mean for the climate and consumers? Do they really reduce emissions and if so by how much? What about battery manufacturing, isn’t it dirty? What do EVs mean for consumers? Aren’t they more expensive? Where will people charge? This webinar will tackle these […]

NDC-TIA China Annual Workshop – Planning and Major Policies for Peaking Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Transportation and Carbon Neutrality

The NDC-TIA China Annual Workshop was held on Nov. 23rd, 2021. It’s a fully online workshop, organized by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) and Vehicle Emission Control Center of Ministry of Ecology and Environment (VECC). Ms. CUI Mingming – the deputy director of Mobile Source Division of the Department of Atmospheric Environment from […]
