    Objective

    Draft proposal prepared by the Ministry of Urban Development, Government of India. To promote energy efficiency as a core component of urban planning, the plan calls for: Extending the existing Energy Conservation Building Code; a greater emphasis on urban waste management and recycling, including power production from waste; strengthening the enforcement of automotive fuel economy standards and using pricing measures to encourage the purchase of efficient vehicles; and incentives for the use of public transportation.

  • Background: DC-DC converters are used in a variety of devices to raise or lower voltage. They are used in the power systems of hybrid and electric vehicles to boost the battery’s output voltage. In these systems an upper controller continually samples and determines the motor’s target output in response to speed and the position of the accelerator pedal. For a motor outputting several tens of kilowatts sampling time (Ta) is typically every 0.1 seconds. Since efficiency is particularly important in hybrid and electric vehicles the efficiency of the DC converter is critical too.

    This working paper describes the effect that taxes and other incentives in the European Union (EU) have had on CO2 emissions, and it identifies a shift over time towards tax-optimized vehicles. In addition to vehicle CO2 emission standards imposed at the European Union level, several EU member states have put in place tax and other incentives to encourage consumers to buy more efficient vehicles. The authors examine the effect those policies have had on CO2 emissions specifically.
