TEPR projects: CO2 emissions from cars
Currently, cars are the most significant source of transport’s CO2 emissions. In order to deliver the necessary long-term reductions in CO2 emissions from transport, there is a need to significantly improve the fuel efficiency and reduce the CO2 emissions of new cars.
An important element of the policy framework is the EU’s passenger car CO2 regulation, which requires that large manufacturers that sell cars in the EU reduce the CO2 emissions of the cars that they put on the market. A similar regulation exists for light commercial vehicles (i.e. vans).
TEPR has worked extensively on the passenger car CO2 regulation, including on the following reports for the European Commission:
TEPR’s Ian Skinner has also previously worked on reports for the Commission in support of the development of the initial regulations, including:
