Authors:

Publication Year: 2020

Proposed by: Robert Boyd

Project Areas: Aviation

Abstract

This report, the result of two years of work by experts from across the sector, outlines how air transport can meet its long-term goal and explores how it may go beyond that already ambitious target.

Title: Determining the environmental impacts of conventional and alternatively fuelled vehicles through LCA

Publication Year: 2020

Proposed by: Mark Richters

Project Areas: General Policy and Market, Passenger Cars, Heavy Duty Vehicles

Abstract

Transport is an important contributor to several environmental issues, including air pollution and climate change. The EU has set challenging objectives for tackling these. To help support decision making on mitigating actions in the transport sector it is paramount to develop a better understanding of the environmental impacts of road vehicles over their entire lifecycle. This report summarises a
range of vehicle life-cycle assessment (LCA) studies available in the public domain, which were found to be of varying focus, data quality, detail and coverage. It develops a policymaker-oriented LCA methodology for light- and heavy-duty vehicles covering a selection of major powertrain types and fuel chains for the 2020 to 2050 timeframe. The study has combined state-of-the art vehicle LCA with novel methodological choices to develop results for a range of environmental impacts for 14 electricity chains, 60 fuel chains, and 65 generic vehicle/powertrain combinations across 7 vehicle types. It has also provided several suggestions for policy-makers, based on these results, especially recommendations for future LCA research.

Title: MUSIC Report: Market Uptake Support for Intermediate Bioenergy Carriers – EU and national regulatory framework

Authors:

Publication Year: 2020

Proposed by: Felix Colmorgen

Project Areas: General Policy and Market

Abstract

The MUSIC project will support market uptake of Intermediate Bioenergy Carriers (IBCs) by developing feedstock mobilisation strategies, improved cost-effective logistics and trade centres.
The present report is intended as a guide for stakeholders with interest, or actual involvement, in IBC value chains. It investigates the current EU and national regulatory framework for IBCs. It’s main goal is to assess how existing/forthcoming EU legislation serves as either an opportunity, or a barrier, to the introduction and deployment of IBCs.

Title: Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy

Authors: n.a.

Publication Year: 2020

Proposed by: n.a.

Project Areas: General Policy and Market

Abstract

This strategy lays the foundation for how the EU transport system can achieve its green and digital transformation and become more resilient to future crises. As outlined in the European Green Deal, the result will be a 90% cut in emissions by 2050, delivered by a smart, competitive, safe, accessible and affordable transport system.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No. 101006717.
