Transport is the sector with the highest final energy consumption and, without any significant policy changes, is forecast to remain so. In 2008, the IEA published 25 energy efficiency recommendations, among which four are for the transport sector.

Transport is a fast growing sector. A steadily increasing motorization along with urbanization is a trend that can be observed in most developing countries. This and the oil dependence of the transport sector lead to considerable growth rates of carbon emissions. Actions to stop this trend are urgently needed.

This white paper summarizes the differences between size-based and mass-based efficiency standards, discusses their relative advantages and disadvantages, and provides guidance on the development of future standards. Specifically, the paper argues that size-indexed standards are more effective in promoting efficient technologies, and more neutral with respect to technology.

A survey on fuel economy in the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) was conducted to assist ASEAN and its Member Countries to adopt a pro-active approach to promote fuel economy by establishing a common framework for adopting fuel economy policies and measures.

This study evaluates potentially viable strategies to reduce transportation greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The study was mandated by the Energy Independence and Security Act. The Act directed the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), in coordination with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and consultation with the U.S.

EPA and NHTSA are issuing this joint Final Rule to establish a National Program consisting of new standards for light-duty vehicles that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve fuel economy. This joint Final Rule is consistent with the

This new CPCB document presents a review of the vehicular emission problems in Indian cities, the status of vehicular pollution control programmes and their impact on the urban air quality.

As the U.S. debates an economy-wide CO2 cap-and-trade policy, the transportation sector remains a significant oil security and climate change concern. Even though the transportation sector consumes the majority of the U.S.

This recent paper discusses the importance of addressing greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector in developing countries and suggests that supported NAMAs provide an important opportunity to truly transform the transportation sector in many countries.

Year 2009 can be considered very significant as climate change concerns in transport became the primary driver of the Sustainable Transport agenda.
