      Gasoline savings from clean vehicle adoption

      Energy Policy

      Conventional counterfactuals used in literature may underestimate fuel savings from clean vehicle adoption, thus overestimating the costs of securing associated environmental benefits. Using a large-scale nationally representative sample of U.S. new car buyers, we propose a choice model-based counterfactual approach…

      Gasoline Savings From Clean Vehicle Adoption

      Rubal Dua

      Without the option to purchase plug-in electric and/or hybrid vehicles, conventional counterfactuals used in literature may underestimate the fuel savings from clean vehicle adoption, thus overestimating the costs of securing associated environmental benefits. Using a nationally representative sample of new…

      Welfare Implications of the Rebound Effect From More Energy-Efficient Passenger Cars
      Future of Transport and Fuel Demand

      Welfare Implications of the Rebound Effect From More Energy-Efficient Passenger Cars

      Anwar Gasim, Ziyad Alfawzan

      Improving the energy efficiency of passenger cars makes it cheaper to drive, allowing motorists to take to the roads more frequently. This additional driving, which offsets some of the expected energy savings from energy efficiency, is known as the rebound…

      Will Current Electric Vehicle Policy Lead to Cost-Effective Electrification of Passenger Car Transport?

      Green Energy and Technology

      Encouraged by the falling cost of batteries, electric vehicle (EV) policy today focuses on accelerating electrification of passenger cars, paying comparatively little attention to the cost of the particular type of EVs and charging infrastructure deployed. This chapter first discusses…

      Impact of Domestic Fuel Price Reforms on the use of Public Transport in Saudi Arabia
      Future of Transport and Fuel Demand

      Impact of Domestic Fuel Price Reforms on the use of Public Transport in Saudi Arabia

      In 2016, policymakers in Saudi Arabia increased domestic transportation fuel prices, which are expected to approach market levels in the near future. Current low crude oil prices offer an excellent opportunity for policymakers to deregulate the passenger transportation sector without…
