Annex 8: Heavy-Duty Vehicles on Alternative Fuels

Final Report

Heavy-duty Vehicles on Alternative Fuels - Distributed to the Executive Committee

Summary

This annex was carried out in two phases. In the first phase an analysis of the results of 73 different demonstration projects set up in several countries around the world was carried out. Because demonstration projects have different goals, use different test methods and procedures, it was hard to compare the results. A unification of test methods, especially for emissions and energy consumption, will increase the value of the outcome of a demonstration for third parties.

In a second phase a leaflet with recommendation for demonstrations was developed based on the results of the first phase and on the results of a workshop with demonstration experts.
