International Forum on CO2 from Heavy Duty Vehicles

30/05/2013 to 31/05/2013

DG-CLIMA with the assistance of the JRC is working for the last couple of years, on defining a European methodology for estimation of CO2 emissions from Heavy Duty Vehicles. This methodology will use both vehicle simulation and targeted measurements. For this reason, a new simulation tool, called VECTO has been developed and tested recently at the JRC, with the help of the industry and universities. Similar policy initiatives have been adopted recently in several parts of the world.
