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.

On July 11, 2012, the European Commission put forward two regulatory proposals that would implement mandatory 2020 CO2 emission targets for new passenger cars and light-commercial vehicles (vans). The proposals now need only be confirmed by the European Parliament and European Council to become law.

The mobility projections in this Transport Outlook indicate that global passenger transport volumes in 2050 could be up to 2.5 times as large as in 2010, and freight volumes could grow by a factor of four. Emissions of CO2 grow more slowly because of increasing energy efficiency, but may nevertheless more than double.

There are great opportunities around the globe to reduce conventional pollutant emissions from light-duty vehicles (LDVs), with positive effects on air quality and public health. This report directly addresses the cost to LDV manufacturers of deploying technology in order to meet more stringent emission regulations.

The first ever global analysis of light duty vehicle characteristics, including fuel economy, shows that faster rates of improvement over the next 10-20 years will be needed in order to meet the targets of the Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI).

Vehicle emission and fuel quality standards play a critical role in limiting the emissions from each vehicle and, together with other measures, in reducing the impact of continued vehicle growth on Asia’s air quality.

The hearing in a Public Interest Litigation on Lal Chowk traffic mess and specification of age of vehicles will conclude tomorrow and the High Court is also expected to deliver its judgment in this regard.
According to advocate G M Wani who has filed PIL in this regard, the Court is expected to hear advocate general on rehabilitation package for the transporters.
On May 23, the High Court grante

On February 15, 2011 the European Parliament adopted legislation that, for the first time, will regulate CO2 emissions from light commercial vehicles (LCV) in Europe. The original legislative proposal was issued by the European Commission in October 2009, and since then it has been debated between the regulatory agencies in Europe.

Governments are looking to fiscal policy to enhance & reinforce standards-based approaches to reducing vehicle emissions. This report analyzes taxes & incentives applied to new private passenger vehicles in eight of the world’s leading auto markets -the United Kingdom, the United States, France, Germany, Brazil, China, India, and Japan.
