GFEI Working Paper 14

Estimating the fuel efficiency technology potential of heavy-duty trucks in major markets around the world

GFEI Working Paper 14 investigates the potential for more efficient freight-hauling tractor-trailers and rigid delivery trucks using known efficiency technologies. It does this by developing a baseline tractor-trailer and a representative rigid delivery truck for the 2015 EU, US, Brazil, India, and China fleets. These two truck categories account for the vast majority of road freight oil use and climate emissions. The baseline fuel consumption is determined over region specific duty cycles and payloads.
