JEC Well-To-Wheels study update is now available online

The long-awaited updated version 5 of JEC Well-to-Wheels study, assessing the energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of road fuel and powertrain configurations compared to the 2030 European context is published.

The JEC project is a long-standing collaboration between the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, EUCAR and Concawe. Our objectives are the evaluation of energy use and GHG emissions related to engine and vehicle technologies, fuel production routes and final quality, and the interaction between them, with the ultimate goal to provide the European Union with scientific WTW facts, supporting the sustainable development of European vehicle and refining industries.

In this update you find:

  • New fuel production pathways complemented by the update of version 4 pathways, including conversion technologies and new feedstocks.
  • Heavy-duty vehicles are included for the first time in the JEC report. Long-haul and regional trucks have been added to the updated passenger car model.
  • Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) is replacing the previously used New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).

The study (including the Wheel-to-Tank and JEC Tank-To-Wheel reports) is available on the JEC web site.
