iCET held the online launch of the Energy Foundation project for 2020-2021

On 26 November, the Innovation Centre for Energy and Transport (iCET) held a kick-off meeting for the 2020-2021 Energy Foundation Support Programme through Tencent Conferences. The meeting was chaired by Dr. Feng An, Executive Director of iCET, Mr. Huiming Gong, Senior Program Director of the Energy Foundation's Transportation Program, Ms. Yan Xin, Program Director, and Mr. Joffe Jin, Deputy Chief Engineer of the Institute of Standardization, China Automotive Technology Research Center, Dr. Bin Liu, Deputy Director of China Automotive Strategy and Policy Research Centre, China Automotive Technology Research Centre (CATRC), and Ms. Lijie Jia, Director Engineer of Research and Development, China Automotive Data Low Carbon Business Department, CATRC, Mr. Dong Ma, Project Manager, Key Project Office, Motor Vehicle Emission Monitoring Centre, Ministry of Ecology and Environment, Ms. Mei Liu, Researcher, China Institute of Standardization, Mr. Yan Lei, Senior Manager, Carbon Trading Center, Beijing Environmental Exchange, Mr. Dongsheng Wang, Assistant Director of the Beijing Branch of the China Automotive Engineering Research Institute, and other experts attended the meeting.

The iCET project team first introduced California's advanced low-carbon fuel standards and analyzed the feasibility of the standards in China. Since China has not yet issued a corresponding standard, the experts at the meeting raised expectations for the project team to analyze and summarize the problems and challenges that China may face when formulating relevant standards. At the same time, the participating experts also believe that it is necessary to further collate the achievements and experience achieved in the implementation of California's low-carbon fuel standards to have a more comprehensive understanding of foreign advanced experience.

Next, the project team introduced a scenario study on the electrification of commercial vehicles in China, including an in-depth interpretation of the "Advanced Clean Truck Regulations" promulgated in California in June, and analyzed the scenarios of the electrification of commercial vehicles in China based on the regulations and evaluated related Environmental benefits. At this stage, China is also actively formulating a commercial vehicle points policy, and at the same time launching a three-year commercial vehicle action plan at the local level. In certain sub-sectors, such as the public transport sector, China has a better penetration rate of electric vehicles. As the commercial vehicle market is very complex, the participating experts put forward good opinions and suggestions on the classification of commercial vehicles. Besides, the participating experts also hope to learn more about the considerations in the formulation of California's "Advanced Clean Truck Regulations" from more perspectives.

Finally, Director Huiming Gong made a brief summary and put forward expectations for the next development of the subject. He believes that when introducing advanced international experience, it is necessary to think more about the actual situation in China and clarify the obstacles that may exist in the process. Director Gong also pointed out that many domestic institutions are currently conducting research on the electrification of commercial vehicles, but the analysis process needs to be combined with the actual situation of the industry to make relevant predictions more credible and reliable, to better connect with policy formulation process.
