2017 Annual Report of China’s Passenger Vehicle Fuel Economy

With support from Energy Foundation China, the Innovation Center for Energy and Transportation studied China’s joint Corporate Average Fuel Consumption-New Energy Vehicle credits policy, and compared the new energy vehicle credits with California’s zero-emission vehicle integration mechanism. Through exploring the current status and future trends of the corporate-average fuel consumption in China, this annual report examines how the new energy vehicle credits and the dual credit policy can impact the auto industry.

2017 Annual Report on the Passenger Vehicle Fuel Economy Difference Between Real Road Data and Driving Cycles

With support from Energy Foundation China, the Innovation Center for Energy and Transportation examined the fuel economy difference between real road data and driving cycles from many perspectives, including vehicle classifications, car brands, testing regions, seasons, vehicle weights, fuel consumption levels in typical working condition, and best-selling models. The annual report also explores possible reasons behind the difference and provides technical support for fuel economy management in China.

A proposal of China's ZEV program design

This brief is meant to inspire Chinese EV stakeholders to converse on the topic of ZEV program design and action plan for China. A former iCET report described the California ZEV program, evaluated its effectiveness through qualitative and quantitative research, and studied its history and inception process. This former work was introduced to national and local stakeholders in China, including the government, academic, and private sectors through workshops, round tables, and meetings. The process of stakeholders’ engagement was important on its own, as it unveiled concerns and challenges facing a China-tailored program.

ZEV credits regulation and cap and trade program

This project is aimed at evaluating recent innovative schemes for incentivizing sustainable vehicle and fuel production and financing clean transportation technology development through the industry players themselves. The first, the California Zero Emissions Vehicles (ZEV) credit scheme, is unique program that evolved over a twenty year period and was able to drive local low-emissions vehicle innovations through a mandate combined with market-based implementation mechanism. The second is a recent Cap-andTrade scheme aimed at incentivizing energy and fuel supply through market forces. The two programs, although not officially linked, are both serving similar air-quality improvement and fuel and GHG emissions reduction targets under the state’s scoping plan for better air quality and later on - reduced GHG emissions. After outlining these programs’ development and evaluating their success, this report will highlight the potential and impediments for similar programs design for implementation in Chinese cities.

ZEV credits introduction and Tesla case study

This report is aimed at introducing the California ZEV-Credits Program, a recent innovative scheme for incentivizing sustainable vehicle production and financing clean transportation technologies development through the transportation sector. The Program’s success will be evaluated through a single case study of world’s leading California-based electric vehicle manufacturer, Tesla Motors. This report will end with initial suggestions for policy-makers and related stakeholders on how a similar program could be evaluated and tailored for use in China.
