FUEL ECONOMY OF HEAVY-DUTY VEHICLES

In 2005, trucks used a total of about 500 Mtoe (21 EJ) of energy worldwide or about 23% of the total

energy consumed by the transport sector in the year. There are many engine and non-engine innovations

that have the potential to deliver significant fuel efficiency gains. The stringent nitrogen oxides (NOx) and

particulate matter (PM) regulations planned in the near future in the European Union, Japan and the

United States may reduce fuel efficiency gains. Indian government should also work upon fuel economy

like others & after making it industry friendly. After that it should make it as mandatory by suitable guiding

standards.

Particulars Unit Value

Present Energy Consumption MTOE 34

Estimated Fuel Consumption in HDV till 2030 MTOE 82

Estimated Saving Potential till 2030 % 15%

Estimated Saving Potential till 2030 MTOE 12.3

Estimated Saving Potential till 2030 Million Rs.

Table: Estimated Saving Form Fuel Economy Of HDV Vehicles

Challenges & Barriers: Most commercial operators expect a three year payback for fuel economy

improvements. Measures that fall within this range are likely to be implemented by industry without any

support or regulatory pressure. However, if governments aim to make significant impacts on heavy-duty

vehicle energy efficiency beyond what the market can deliver, then the implementation of measures with

a payback period of four to six years (e.g. multiple turbo chargers) is likely to require some form of

government intervention, especially since operators are sensitive to overall operating costs and not just

fuel costs which represent approximately 30% of the total.

    What i do not realize is in truth how you’re no longer actually much more smartly-appreciated than you may be right now. You’re so intelligent.
