We're proud to announce the presentation of "Ecodriving : a driving style to optimise the use phase of our vehicles", our research work on ecodriving. It will be during the first poster session at EGG 2016 on September 7, at 15:30. There, we will show how important ecodriving can become to reduce the environmental impact in our cities and roads, among other benefits.
Nowadays, much effort is put into saving energy. End-users are mostly interest on energy consumption during the use phase. In 2015, transports represented 19% of total energy consumption worldwide. These, employ 99% off fossil energy, releasing 23% of global CO2 emissions (2010) - along with other well-known pollutants (CO, SOx, NOx, VOC’s, particles, etc.)
Tens of car manufacturers, hundreds of models (new, improved, incoming, etc.), and thousands of people. The powerful and luxurious sport cars, expensive brands, and exotic models, are easy to find by following the crowd. As ecodrivers, we put especial interest in energy efficiency, hybrid and electric engines, and other promising technologies.
