NGVA Europe (Belgium)
NGVA Europe welcomes the impact assessment on Heavy Duty Vehicles (HDV) CO2 emission standards and views it as an important step towards decarbonising heavy-duty transport and offering sustainable solutions that can reduce emissions and ensure the use of clean fuels and technologies. NGVA Europe believes that in any future scenario, transport solutions have to be designed with the customer in mind, while also considering the different vehicle...

Please see attached for more details and links. A. Projections: The inception impact assessment focuses too much on the 2030 energy and climate targets only. T&E commissioned a study which shows transport needs to reduce its emissions almost to zero by 2050 if we want to reach our Paris climate targets. Therefore EC shall also introduce a ZEV mandate or benchmark for trucks and buses. B. Design of the standard: Ambitious full vehicle and...
While the IRU welcomes the EC’s Inception Impact Assessment outlining with more clarity the shape that CO2 standards for HDVs will take, there are still too many unknown factors. The HDV sector is very different from the LDV sector and the approach therefore will entail a more complex assessment and framework. It is not appropriate to simply replicate the approach between the two sectors as HDVs perform a service for the wider economy. CO2...
The International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) (Germany)
ICCT agrees with the European Commission (EC) in section A. In 2017, India finalized the 1st phase of their HDV efficiency stds., bringing the global total to 5 regions with finalized stds. ICCT studies show that there is significant near-term potential to cost effectively improve HDV efficiency with available tech. There are 4 key barriers preventing the uptake of these tech: Uncertain return on investment, Capital cost constraints, Split...
Neste Corporation (Finland)
It is not enough to measure tailpipe CO2 molecules with a fossil reference diesel fuel when target is to reduce CO2 emissions of heavy duty vehicles and non-ETS sector. 83 % of stakeholders in Impact Assessment SWD(2017)188 agreed that also alternative fuels like biofuels and CNG should be incorporated. HVO, GTL, B100, ED95, CNG, CBG and electricity are already used by fleets, and LNG, DME and hydrogen have been demonstrated. Cost efficient...
Irish Road Haulage Association (Ireland)
I am concerned that Euro Six truck technology is neither known or alternatively being explained by dealer networks to purchasers, this negates the value of the technology,. In other instances the purchasers chose to ignore what is available and do not explain it to the drivers. How to address this? The obvious choice is the TM's CPC however there is no requirement to update this except perhaps in some member states but the regulation does not...
