The Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) works to secure real improvements in fuel economy, and the maximum deployment of vehicle efficiency technologies across the world.
improved by 1.5% a year - from an average fuel economy of 8.8 litres of gasoline equivalent per 100km travelled in 2005, to 7.6 litres in 2015 - saving fuel, and reducing carbon emissions.
This has saved 1.5 EJ per year, equivalent to the total energy use of Italy - compared with a scenario of no fuel economy improvements in new vehicles since 2005.
GFEI’s latest analysis, published in January 2017 for the years 2005-2015 indicates that on average global fuel economy
capacity building support to countries - so that almost fifty countries have now completed a 'baseline' analysis of the average vehicle fuel economy in their countries, with over twenty already completing policy recommendations or proposals.
GFEI also produces research papers, provides training and facilitates policy discussions.
