How can related ghg emissions be addressed

How can related GHG emissions be addressed?

More efficient vehicles – new engines and designs

Cleaner energy – new fuels and propulsion systems

More optimal use of transport networks – information and communication systems


Which policy tools

Which policy tools?

No one solution

Broad mix of policies will be required

Technical innovation

May not be able to contribute all improvements

Regulation

Where market failings occur

Price signals

Generic and/or specific?


Emerging hdv strategy

Emerging HDV strategy

Mix of policy instruments

Engine technologies, aerodynamics etc.

Eco-driving

Pricing

Measurement methodology

Baseline necessary


Conclusion

Conclusion

Freight transport is necessary for society and economic growth

The challenge is reconciling these necessities with a CO2 reduction target of 60%

Innovation and technical development is key but will not alone achieve stated goals

Parallel policy instruments are also needed
