The Center for Alternative Fuels, Engines and Emissions (CAFEE) at West Virginia University (WVU) was contracted by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) to conduct in-use testing of three light-duty diesel vehicles, using a portable emissions measurement system (PEMS), over a variety of pre-defined test routes exhibiting dive

The product planning decisions of a small number of automotive companies have an immense influence on the environmental health of the United States and the world.

This annual report released by the Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) reviews progress on fuel economy policies worldwide, and assesses further work needed to reach GFEI target of a 50% reduction in new car fuel consumption (L/100km) compared to 2005 levels, particularly in non-OECD countries. Says that India, along with Australia and Russia now remain the three largest markets without an official fuel efficiency target.

Compliance and enforcement programs aim to ensure that, even after a period of use, vehicle emissions of criteria pollutants (primarily particulates, nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons, and carbon monoxide) do not exceed the original certification standards.

Europe faces a significant economic challenge. Ahead lies the task of reining in public debt, revitalizing stagnant economies and creating new opportunities for millions of jobless workers. At the same time, the European Union has committed to playing a lead role in tackling climate change.

This update containing new data analysis for years 2010 and 2011 sheds light on the latest improvement of new light-duty vehicle average fuel economy in most of the big markets worldwide including India.

This report evaluates the impact of transportation policies on worldwide oil consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the potential for the reduction of both out to 2030. Its analysis finds that policies adopted and formally announced since 2000 will dramatically reduce oil consumption and GHG emissions from the transportation sector.

The 2012 EU Energy [R]evolution report, carried out for Greenpeace and the European Renewable Energy Council by the German National Centre for Aerospace, Energy and Transport Research, demonstrates how Europe would gain nearly half a million extra energy sector jobs by 2020 if it prioritises a system largely made up of renewables and energy effi

This roadmap explores the potential improvement of existing technologies to enhance average fuel economy of motorised vehicles and provides recommendations to reduce the average fuel economy of road motorised vehicles by 30% to 50% by 2030.
