SAM High Level Group delivers first Scientific Opinion

On 11 November 2016, the Chair of the High Level Group of Scientific Advisors, Henrik C. Wegener, submitted the Group’s first Scientific Opinion "Closing the gap - between light-duty vehicle real-world CO2 emissions and laboratory testing" to Carlos Moedas, Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation.

In their Opinion, the Group analyses how to close the growing gap between the measurement of CO2 emissions from cars and vans in the laboratory (“type approval”) and what they really emit on the road. The Scientific Opinion is intended to provide evidence-based guidance to a Commission policy proposal for post-2020 emission performance standards for light-duty vehicles, expected in 2017.
