Report finds says “negative emissions technologies” need to play a large role in mitigating climate change

Green Car Congress

To achieve goals for climate and economic growth, “negative emissions technologies” (NETs) that remove and sequester carbon dioxide from the air will need to play a significant role in mitigating climate change, according to a new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Most climate mitigation efforts are intended to decrease the rate at which people add carbon from fossil fuel reservoirs to the atmosphere.

EPA and NHTSA Issue Notice of Intent to Develop New Greenhouse Gas and Fuel Economy Standards for Light-Duty Vehicle Model Years 2017-2025; Proposal Expected by 30 Sep 2011

Green Car Congress

While the agencies do not intend to issue another TAR we do plan to do additional analysis and make it available as a part of the Supplemental Notice of Intent. EPA, NHTSA, and CARB held numerous meetings with a wide variety of stakeholders to gather input to consider in developing the TAR, and to ensure that the agencies had available to them the most recent technical information.

The index is built from the four key policies needed to improve fuel economy: fuel tax, CO 2 -based vehicle tax, fuel economy standards and labeling. Among the key findings of this report are: Most technologies for improving the fuel economy of two-wheelers, light-duty vehicles (LDV) and heavy-duty vehicles (HDV) are already commercially available and cost-effective. Although fuel-efficient technologies are commercially available, they are not yet widely enough deployed.

Using the PHEV (Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle) to Transition Society Seamlessly and Profitably From Fossil Fuel to 100% Renewable Energy

Green Car Congress

Since the energy density of liquid fuels is unchallenged by any other form of energy carrier we have today, we will have to continue to use liquid fuel to support our society as we know it. Gasoline/diesel fueling stations to replenish the liquid fuel for these engines are readily available. On the other hand, the PHEV can use the existing electric distribution and gasoline dispensing systems with minor or no change. by Professor Andrew Alfonso Frank.
