A new study on Marginal abatement cost curves for Heavy Duty Vehicles (HDVs) is now available as part of the Commission's preparatory work for its strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from heavy duty vehicles. The study, prepared by CE Delft for the Commission, suggests a significant potential to secure reduced emissions with cost effective technical measures. Estimates contained in the study of break-even points for fuel saving technology uptakes are at this stage indicative.

The Commission is continuing its work with a view to presenting the strategy in 2013.
