Wo Energie fließt, ist auch Leben. Denn Energie ist Leben.
US Fuels Institute: State of Transportation Energy
The transportation market is transitioning to lower-carbon-intense sources of energy and more efficient use of existing energy resources, but the transition is proceeding at an evolutionary pace. While many are advocating a rapid transition to an electrified transportation market. To have an objective look at the realities of the market and the broad mix of powertrains moving people from one place to another, the US Fuels Institute hat published the report State of Transportation Energy and Vehicle Electrification.
Both the U.S. Bureau of Statistics and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indicate that the average fuel economy of new light duty vehicles improved by more than 35% between 2000 and 2017. As a result, environment performance, especially carbon dioxide of every class of vehicle has improved. What is impressive about this development are the technologies used by the automotive manufacturing industry to achieve these results.
The Fuels Institute, founded by NACS (National Association of Convenience Stores) in 2013, publishes fact-based research projects designed to answer relevant market questions, not advocate for any specific outcome. The reports are geared toward all industry stakeholders – from those trying to make strategic business decisions to policymakers considering legislation and regulations affecting the fuels and vehicles markets.
