This resource contains presentations from one of the Center for Automotive Research's (CAR's) breakfast briefings titled "Automotive Fuels and Emissions: Policies, Compliance, & Potential Impact of Future Technologies." This briefing occurred on 12/5/13 at Robert Bosch LLC in Farmington Hills, MI. At the briefing presenters discussed the strategic implications of Tier 3 regulations which will soon be finalized and may impact future technology decisions in a multitude of ways. The impact of Tier 3 emission regulations is expected to be far reaching as they have the potential to influence the quality of fuel, as well as usage of alternative fuels and powertrains. Further, the regulations will have a direct influence on the technologies, such as diesel and gasoline direct injection, that automakers will utilize to meet the fuel economy standards through MY2025. Included in this resource are the presentations from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Volkswagen, and Bosch utilized at the briefing.

In this study a green job creation model for 2030 is formed by analyzing 15 other studies on renewable energy, energy efficiency, carbon capture and storage, and nuclear power. Job data is normalized using average employment per unit energy of plant lifetime. Job losses for coal and natural gas are also considered. It is found non-fossil fuel technologies produce more jobs per energy unit than coal and natural gas. If correct measures are taken, over 4 million full time clean energy jobs may be created by 2030.

In his book, MacKay explores our population's addiction to fossil fuels and the problems faced with sustainability. Two issues faced with fossil fuels are they will eventually run out and they are harming our environment during use. McKay does not give one simple solution to the problem, but contrast various advanced technologies and how they may be applied to improve our environment and sustainability.

In this discussion paper by colleagues at Harvard University, the future of a large U.S. electric vehicle market is examined based on key questions. To answer these questions, battery electric vehicles (BEVs), plug-in electric vehicles (PHEVs), and internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEVs) are compared with current and projected future lifecycle costs and various scenarios (change in gas/electricity cost, battery cost, customer discount rates, and vehicle efficiency). It is found that currently BEVs and PHEVs are $4000-$5000 more than ICEVs based on lifecycle cost, but in 10-20 years BEVs will be $1000-$7000 cheaper than ICEVs while PHEVs will possible remain more expensive than ICEVs unless battery cost drops significantly and gas prices rise. It is concluded that for the electric vehicle market to increase substantially in the next 10-20 years, gas prices will need to be $4.50 to $5.50 per gallon while battery technology and range increase. However, this can be accelerated with government assistance.
