Assessing the Impacts of Vehicle Emissions and Safety Regulations

2019

Author(s): Wee B V

This ITF Roundtable document is on regulation. The discussion is limited to regulations for standards for road vehicles aiming to improve the environmental and safety performance of these vehicles. The focus is on costs, although a brief discussion on benefits is added as well. The perspective of the paper is one of policy relevance and policy-relevant research, not so much a theoretical academic one.

Shared E-Scooters: Paving the Road Ahead

2019

Publisher/Organisation: Agora Verkehrswende

What are the impacts of e-scooters on the environment, the climate, and transportation systems? How can e-scooters be operated in a manner that supports the needs of the municipality and its residents, or at least does not have negative impacts? And what are appropriate mechanisms to regulate e-scooters? To aid in answering these questions, this report provides a synthesis of the first, primarily international, experiences with shared e-scooters, describes the opportunities and challenges they bring with them, and offers recommendations for e-scooter planning and regulation in cities and towns both in Germany and beyond.

Solar Energy- Based Electric Vehicle Charging

2020

Publisher/Organisation: Center for Study of Science, Technology and Policy (CSTEP)

The use of energy from a rooftop photovoltaic (RTPV) system for charging electric vehicles (EV) is environmentally advantageous and forms a true approach towards green mobility. Further, if solar energy is generated in close proximity to the EV charging points, it results in lower transmission losses and helps mitigate detrimental effects of sudden rise in EV demand on the grid.
