We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Another ASTM International standard describes the modified total evaporation method for determining uranium isotope abundances by thermal ionization mass spectrometry (C1832).
The EU PVSEC is the largest international Conference for Photovoltaic research, technologies and applications, and at the same time a top international PV Industry Exhibitions. It gathers the global PV community to conduct business, to network and to present and discuss the latest developments and innovations in Photovoltaics. It is the world renowned science-to-science, business-to-business and science-to-industry platform with a full and only focus on the global PV Solar sector.
EUCAR, CONCAWE and JRC (the Joint Research Centre of the EU Commission) have updated their joint evaluation of the Well-to-Wheels energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for a wide range of potential future fuel and powertrain options, first published in December 2003.
The specific objectives of the study remained the same:
This part of the study describes the final use of a fuel and the various powertrain options available.
The issues related to fuel production and provision, are covered in the Well-to-Tank report.
The Well-to-Wheels report provides the integrated view of the relative merits of the wide range of options studied.
The main issues addressed in this Tank-to-Wheels section are the fuel economy, the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and an evaluation of credible retail price for near and longer term technologies in Europe.
