This project will focus on the review of options (mandatory standards, voluntary standards, information campaigns, financial incentives) to improve onroad vehicle fuel efficiency in NSW, and will include:

  • The review of past, recent and projected future trends in the fuel efficiency of the NSW onroad vehicle fleet, with comparisons made to fleet fuel efficiencies in other jurisdictions.
  • Case study analysis of measures implemented in other jurisdictions, including the review of the cost-effectiveness of these measures and the outcomes achieved through their implementation.
  • Review of fuel economy / energy productivity targets being applied or considered by other jurisdictions, including outcome metrics and monitoring, evaluation and reporting frameworks being applied/proposed.
