On 8 February 2016, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) finalized a proposed performance standard for new aircraft that will mandate improvements in fuel efficiency and reductions in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

This study compares official fuel consumption values measured in laboratories with the real-world performance of 20 popular vehicle models. All models claim significant improvements in fuel efficiency since 2009, with reductions in official fuel consumption values ranging from 8 to 30 percent.

In January 2016 the EU Parliament will evaluate the RDE proposal from the European Commission's Technical Committee on Motor Vehicles (TCMV). This brief notes five things that could strengthen the regulation.

This paper investigates the potential for electric vehicles to contribute toward leading nations’ climate goals.

Heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs) represent only 4% of the on-road fleet in the European Union, but are responsible for 30% of on-road CO 2 emissions. Countries around the world are implementing standards to regulate CO2 emissions from HDVs.

Summarizes the new average fuel economy and greenhouse gas standards for light-duty vehicles that will phase in from 2016 through 2020. On December 30, 2014, the Ministry of Environment (ME) announced the new average fuel economy (FE) and greenhouse gas (GHG) standards for light-duty vehicles (notification no. 2014-235).

The inclusion of indirect land use change (ILUC) emissions in the life-cycle assessment of biofuels in several biofuel policies has led to increased attention to the question of whether there are similar, behavior-induced emissions sources that could, or should, be added when assessing the life-cycle carbon intensity (CI) of oil production.

Governments around the world are seeking to promote electric vehicles—to reduce oil consumption, climate-related emissions, and local air pollution, and to stake out an industrial leadership position in the new advanced technology.

The Indian Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas has been considering the possibility of leapfrogging from Bharat Stage (BS) IV emission standards in April 2017 to BS VI emission standards in April 2020. The Parliamentary Committee on Petroleum and Natural Gas has endorsed the idea.

Analyzes results of emissions tests on 32 Euro 6 diesel passenger cars from 10 different manufacturers. Results show some automakers meeting diesel NOx emissions standards under more realistic driving conditions, while others lag badly.
