Task 46

LCA of Electric Trucks , Buses , Two wheelers and Other Vehicles

The new Task is based on the previous HEV tasks 30 „Assessment of Environmental Effects of Electric Vehicles“ (2016 - 2021) and expands its focus on passenger vehicles to further UNECE-classes like two-wheelers, bus, heavy and delivery trucks, and other working machines with its necessary charging infrastructure. The main emphasis of the internationally agreed topics is the elaboration of a common LCA approach for this vehicle classes among the participating countries. This common approach will give the IEA as organization as well as the participating partner countries a better, fact based comparison of environmental effects of alternative propulsion systems based on electricity, which are battery electric vehicles, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and e-fuel vehicles with an internal combustion engine in comparison to conventional fuels.
