Reducing the climate impacts of transport spending

Sketch of a book (default image for publications

To help ensure that transport infrastructure spending contributes to overall transport emissions reduction targets, the EU should adopt a ‘climate rating’ methodology that ensures EU funds are used to stimulate clean and efficient infrastructure. This briefing sums up a CE Delft study aimed at developing the basis for such a methodology.

Design of a (Lorry) Tractor for Optimised Safety and Fuel Consumption

T&E / FKA smart lorry cab design

With both safety and environmental challenges in mind, T&E commissioned an independent study from the automotive research institute FKA aimed at identifying the optimal shape and dimensions of a tractor (the part of the lorry that pulls the trailer), integrating new aerodynamic solutions and improving both active and passive safety.

Smarter, Safer, Cleaner: How Small Changes to Lorry Design Can Make a Big Difference

With both safety and environmental challenges in mind, T&E commissioned an independent study from the automotive research institute FKA aimed at identifying the optimal shape and dimensions of a tractor (the part of the lorry that pulls the trailer), integrating new aerodynamic solutions and improving both active and passive s
