To lower CO2 emissions, policy makers want to integrate as much variable renewable energy (VRE) as possible into power systems. This has been translated into targets for VRE as a share of total electricity generation and policies that aim to maximize the use of electricity available from VRE sources. However, in this paper we demonstrate that it...

The building sector contributes approximately one third of the total energy consumption worldwide. A large part of this energy is used for the heating and cooling of buildings, which can be drastically reduced by use of energy-efficient glazing. In this study, we performed building energy simulations on a prototypical residential building, and...

In this policy perspective we argue that mankind likely needs to achieve negative CO2 emissions before 2050, describe the transition to CO2-neutrality and CO2-negativity, and illustrate the possibly critical role played hereinby CO2 use

In order to respond to climate change, China has committed to reduce national carbon intensity by 40-45% in 2020 and 60-65% in 2030, relative to 2005. Given that energy-intensive industries represent 80% of total CO 2 emissions in China and that China is a large and diverse country, this paper aims to investigate the potential contribution of...

China has embarked on a massive program of low-carbon electricity (LE) deployment, in order to reduce its current dependence on coal. The cumulative installed capacity of LE in 2015 was almost four times of that in 2002. Moreover, China has a target of 20% for non-fossil fuels in primary energy consumption by 2030. LE provides substantial carbon...

Het Planbureau voor de Leefomgeving (PBL) heeft de taak om de effecten van het Nationale Klimaatakkoord te evalueren. Een belangrijk deel van de CO2-reducerende maatregelen heeft betrekking op de verduurzaming van het personenwagenpark. Het zuiniger maken van auto’s met verbrandingsmotor en de ingroei van nulemissievoertuigen, waaronder batterij...

In recent years, China has embarked upon an ambitious roll-out of non-fossil electricity investments. This has led to substantial impacts on carbon emissions, which is expected to continue into the future. However, non-fossil electricity has a significant carbon footprint in pre-operation activities, which we term investments (in the form of the...

Improving the efficiency and sustainability of supply chains is a shared aim of the transport industry, its customers, governments as well as industry organisations. To optimize supply chains and for the identification of best practice, standards for their analysis are needed in order to achieve comparable evaluations. This need for an...

Two traffic scenarios to reduce CO2 emissions from road traffic in two European cities (Basel and Rotterdam) and two Chinese cities (Xi'an and Suzhou) were evaluated in terms of their impact on air quality. The two scenarios, one modelling a reduction of private vehicle kilometres driven by 10% on urban streets and the other modelling the...

Applications of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have been identified to have a significant contribution to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions in the field of transport. The mechanisms by which ICT have an impact on CO2 emissions can be very complex, and calculating this impact requires various models (e.g. traffic and...

The Amitran project aims to define a reference methodology for evaluating the effects of ICT measures in trafäc and transport on energy efficiency and consequently CO2 emissions. This methodology can be used as a reference by future projects and will address different modes for both passenger and freight transport through a comprehensive well-to...

Innovative logistics service providers are currently looking for possibilities to introduce electric vehicles for goods distribution. As electrical vehicles still suffer from a limited operation range, the logistical process faces important challenges. In this research we advise on the composition of the electrical vehicle fleet and on the...

The European Union has committed itself to a 20% reduction of its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and of 30% in case other major economies make comparable efforts. Transport is one of the main emitting sectors, and the only one that continues to grow substantially. Road transport is responsible for the majority of the overall transport emissions...

The Amitran FP7 project will define a reference methodology to assess the impact of intelligent transport systems on CO2 emissions. The methodology is intended to be used as a reference by future projects and covers both passenger and freight transport. The project will lead to a validated methodology, described in a handbook and complemented by...

This paper discusses the validation approach applied in the eCoMove project (a large scale EU 7th Framework Programme project). In this project, applications are developed that on the one hand optimise network-wide traffic management and control, and on the other hand advise drivers on the most efficient routes and assist them in applying an eco...

The road transport sector is currently excluded from the EU-ETS and is unlikely to be included until 2020. Abatement costs for biofuel-related measures in the transport sector are higher than in other sectors. Therefore an inclusion into the EU-ETS represents a risk that transportation companies will purchase allowances from other sectors,...

The reduction of CO2 emissions and fuel consumption from road transportation constitutes an important pillar of the EU commitment for implementing the Kyoto Protocol. Efforts to monitor and limit CO2 emissions from vehicles can effectively be supported by the use of vehicle modelling tools. This paper presents the application of such a tool for...
