Road transport fuels
Characteristics and perspectives - Factsheets

TNO and CE Delft have prepared a series of factsheets on road transport fuels for the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment. Cars running on green gas, electric vehicles, hydrogen fuel: today we see various novel configurations emerging. These have been analysed alongside ‘regular’ petrol and diesel, providing (national, regional and local) policymakers and fleet operators a comprehensive summary of the current state of the art.

For each fuel, the factsheets review the main characteristics of alternative fuels and engines. The following topics are covered:
  • Use of the fuel in road vehicles
  • Air pollution compared with existing fuels
  • Greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption
  • Distribution and filling/loading infrastructure
  • Costs and fiscal aspects
  • Development phase.
