Comprehensive Evaluation and Promotion Recommendations for Assessment of China's Heavy-Duty Freight Sector Pathways for Oil Reductions


Globally, heavy-duty trucks account for around 10% of all vehicles but contribute 40% of transport CO2 emissions. China is the world’s largest market for heavy-duty truck sales, and dominated by diesel trucks that emit greater air pollutants and CO2 emissions. We use a bottom-up energy end-use model, the China 2050 DREAM model, to conduct scenarios for understanding potential pathways to reduce oil consumption in heavy-duty freight sector using short-term energy strategies of energy efficiency improvements and faster switching to liquefied natural gas (LNG) vehicles and long-term adoption of New Energy Vehicle technologies such as battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell.
