Sales of electric vehicles (EVs) in the United States may not top one million until 2020, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said Thursday, showing purchases have fallen well below President Barack Obam

The Road Transport Highways Ministry has issued a draft notification specifying the design and shape of the star-rating stickers that will be placed on the windows of vehicles.

This study provides an ex-ante assessment of fuel and GHG emission savings potential of low rolling resistance tyres in China’s commercial road freight sector resulting from China’s Green Tyre programme.

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.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has released a report that explores key trends in carbon dioxide emissions, fuel economy, and technology usage related to model year 1975 through 2015 light-duty vehicles sold in the United States.

Worldwide, the vehicle fleet is not making enough progress on fuel economy and is failing to reach global targets aimed at reducing CO2 emissions, cutting oil consumption and improving energy efficiency according to a new report from the Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) (earlier post) released at the Paris COP21 Climate Summit.

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.

Vehicle Fuel Efficiency Labeling (VFEL) is used by numerous countries worldwide to improve the fuel efficiency of their transport fleets. The theory behind VFEL is that better-informed consumers are more likely to purchase fuel-efficient vehicles, and that market demand can improve the energy efficiency of the transport sector.

This report aims to provide an up to date picture of the transport sector and transport-related greenhouse gas emissions and mitigation policies in Vietnam, in order to provide policy-makers, researchers, international donors and other stakeholders a reference document for sustainable transport and climate change.
