This symposium will provide a timely and invaluable opportunity to engage with the latest developments in the EU legislative framework on energy efficiency. It will also enable attendees to examine the societal factors that drive energy consumption, the latest technological innovation that will bring about further efficiency gains and the best solutions to finance energy efficiency projects. The symposium will also offer delegates a platform to share ideas and best practice from across Europe.
The benefits from US fuel efficiency standards for trucks significantly outweigh their costs, a new study by environmental group Transport & Environment (T&E) shows. T&E’s analysis, published today, examines data before and after truck standards came into force in the US in 2011.
As of 1 January 2019, newly produced trucks will have to determine and declare their CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. This will increase transparency around the fuel consumption of heavy-duty vehicles in the EU market.
