www.t-e.nu Why cars ? Because its a key dossier … Key decisions ahead on his dossier Car regulation exclusively EU-level task Next 20 yrs same sales as last 100 Asia follows
www.t-e.nu … and because action is very much justified Emissions increased despite commitment Oil imports EUR 80 bn/yr Huge technical potential Economically attractive Clear market failure
www.t-e.nu Integrated Approach ? Not to be confused with the everything- should-be-done-as-long-as-it-is-not- mandatory-CO2-standards-approach So: on top, not instead, of car regulation Criteria for elements of IA: Quantifiable, monitorable, enforceable Pass subsidiarity test Address both CO2 and energy
www.t-e.nu Key Objective: Double fuel-efficiency of new cars in the next decade, from 160 to 80 g/km CO2 First critical step is existing EU target (120g/km) for 2010
www.t-e.nu Policy backbone: fuel efficiency regulation Example: latest estimate of payback of costs to achieve the 120-objective (even without selling smaller vehicles)
www.t-e.nu Such a regulation should Guarantee that 120/80 be met Provide incentives to improve ALL modes, not just those one that fail Not be counterproductive No link to car weight, power, width, height No separate classes – border effect Reward both early action AND year on year improvement
www.t-e.nu Other elements Improve taxation & labelling Code of conduct for adverts Extend policy to vans tyre energy labels & regulation Biofuels: cleanup is first priority Improve test cycle !
www.t-e.nu Making vehicles for better driving Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA) in car type approval Speed limiters for vans In-car equipment (info on gear shift, fuel consumption, tyre pressure, …) Driver training vouchers when buying a car
www.t-e.nu Summary Double fuel efficiency in decade, 120 by 2010 Fuel savings from achieving 120 exceed costs Fuel efficiency regulation is backbone Integrated approach: on top, not instead, of this Well-designed regulation combines effectiveness with fairness towards industries involved String of complementary measures needed
