Fuels and technologies to mitigate emissions: webinar and related resources


This collection of resources relates to the webinar entitled, “Fuels and technologies to mitigate emissions,” brought to you by the Transport Working Group of LEDS GP, in partnership with the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and Clean Air Asia. The webinar is part of a series entitled “Supporting countries with implementing new vehicle emission fuel quality standards.”

In the webinar, the presenter, Erin Cooper, discussed the role of different strategies to reduce emissions from the transport sector. The presenter focused on different types of fuels and relevant technologies and how they can be applied in specific situations. The webinar concluded with a discussion on the benefits and potential tradeoffs of utilizing these technologies and fuels.

Below, we have collected all the resources mentioned in, or related to, the webinar.

Resources:

Multimedia

  • Webinar series: Clean vehicles and fuels in India – This webinar series on the case of India and how the country developed pathways and costs for India to produce ultra-low sulfur fuels (ULSF). Topics include: vehicle emissions standards and compliance programs, fuel quality, reducing pollutant emissions and fuel consumption in two- and three-wheelers, and the transition to ultra-low-sulfur fuels.
  • Video: InnovWeek ENGIE – Mexico Natural Gas Vehicle Project – The ENGIE Group drives efforts in natural gas for vehicles, so that public transportation in cities where it is present can run on natural gas. Campeche, in the South of Mexico, is developing one of the first models of a sustainable city in Mexico; ENGIE is actively participating in this project. ENGIE in Mexico is taking the initiative to drive the transition of energy for urban mobility in Mexican cities.
  • Factsheet: Avoid-Shift-Improve (A-S-I) factsheet – This factsheet summarizes the concept for Avoid-Shift-Improve.
  • Infographic: Diesel fuel sulphur levels: Global status – This graphic shows the countries’ status of diesel fuel sulphur levels as of June 2015.
  • Infographic: Leaded petrol phase-out: Global status as at January 2015 – This graphic shows the countries’ status of unleaded fuel as of January 2015.

Tools

  • Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) auto fuel efficiency toolkit – This tool is designed to provide policymakers and interested individuals and groups with overviews of policy tools and approaches to improving fleet-wide automobile fuel efficiency and promote lower CO2 and non-CO2 emissions from cars, along with case studies that depict these approaches from developed and developing countries.
  • Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) Resources – The Global Fuel Economy Initiative has launched the 50by50 challenge to facilitate large reductions of greenhouse gas emissions and oil use through improvements in automotive fuel economy. The website provides access to working papers, a map showing countries with fuel economy standards, and other related information.
  • Transport policy toolkit – TransportPolicy.net provides comprehensive information on energy and environmental regulations in the transportation sector worldwide, with a focus on emissions and fuels.
  • PCFV Regulatory Toolkit – This toolkit will support developing and transitional countries to introduce requirements for 50 ppm and below sulfur fuels; produce or import lower emitting and more efficient vehicle technologies; establish vehicle emissions control roadmaps; and ultimately improve air quality and human health in these countries.
