Fuel Economy Standards


Proposed fuel economy standards a complete sell-out, says CSE

  • Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) releases proposed fuel economy standards for cars -- CSE lambasts them as too little too late.

  • The standards require car manufactures to do nothing until 2015 and only a marginal improvement thereafter.

Seeking solutions to air pollution, congestion, and Climate: the role of transportation and mobility

CSE organised a roundtable discussion on “Transport and climate: building an agenda for action” along with the Global Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport in New Delhi on November 18, 2009. This brought together experts, policy makers, and civil society groups to discuss the climate imperatives of the transportation sector.

Energy and Transport

Transport sector is the largest user of oil – nearly half of the total consumption, and is poised to make India’s oil security even more precarious. Asian Development Bank projects that the total fuel consumption of on-road vehicles in India in 2035 can be six times over that of 2005 level. Explosive growth in personal vehicles and steady shift of freight transport from railways to roadways will incite ravenous appetite for energy.

Fuel Economy: No Action Roadmap

Here is what it takes to make an absurd number game -- cunning rules, crafty calculations and clueless regulators.

Fuel economy standards for cars a step in the right direction: CSE

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) comes out in support of Bureau of Energy Efficiency’s initiative to set fuel economy standards and a labeling programme for cars.



Demands immediate implementation as rapid increase in car numbers and steady drift towards bigger cars threaten India’s energy security.
