Well-To-Wheels Analysis of Future Automotive Fuels and Powertrains in the European Context

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

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 remain the same:
- Establish, in a transparent and objective manner, a consensual well-to-wheels energy use and GHG emissions assessment of a wide range of automotive fuels and powertrains relevant to Europe in 2010 and beyond.
- Consider the viability of each fuel pathway and estimate the associated macro-economic costs.
- Have the outcome accepted as a reference by all relevant stakeholders.
