IEA HEV Task 46: LCA of Electric Trucks, Buses, Two-Wheelers and other Vehicles (Working period 2022 - 2024)
The objective of this R&D service is the participation in Task 46 of the IEA Hybrid and Electric Vehicle (HEV) TCP with the work on the internationally agreed topics and the managing of the task as Operating Agent. Beside the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) studies of typical examples also methods for the assessment of climate neutrality and circularity are developed. This is done in dedicated expert workshops.
The Task's main objectives are to monitor progress and review relevant aspects for a successful introduction of electric freight vehicles (EFV) into the market. Austrian pilot projects on EFV are used to exchange barriers and solution approaches in an international context, especially with regard to substitution potential, costs and energy consumption. Together with incentive systems for the market launch of EFV, this will be discussed with logistics companies, the ministry (BMK) and research institutions.
