Vision 2050: aligning aviation with the Paris agreement

2022

Author(s): Graver B, Zheng S, Rutherford D, Mukhodpadhaya J, Pronk E

The report outlines a roadmap that is global in scope, while including only international operations. It describes the effect of fuel price on traffic demand. It compares cumulative CO2 emissions from three scenarios against global carbon budgets that are tied to the three temperature targets. And it suggests intermediate goals to ensure that the aviation sector makes early investments in new emissions-reduction technology to avoid quickly consuming its share of the global carbon budget.

REN21. 2022. Renewables 2022: global status report

2022

Author(s): REN21 Secretariat

The report observed much of the growth in electrification can be attributed to targets and policy support for electric vehicles, in addition to the rising economic competitiveness, technological advancement and model availability of these vehicles. In 2021, electric car sales totalled 6.6 million worldwide, more than doubling from 2020, while sales of other electric vehicles such as two- and three wheelers and buses also saw significant increases.

Electrifying last-mile delivery: a total cost of ownership comparison of battery-electric and diesel trucks in Europe

2022

Author(s): Hussein Basma H, Rodríguez F, Hildermeier J, Jahn A

The study finds that battery-electric trucks for last-mile delivery can reach TCO parity with their diesel counterparts today in most of the European cities considered in this study with the purchase premiums currently available. Without these premiums, they would not reach economic viability relative to diesel trucks until the second half of the decade. The analysis also finds that adjusting the battery size to a truck’s daily mileage and route-level energy needs can help to reduce the truck’s purchase price gap relative to its diesel counterpart.
