2017 New Energy Passenger Vehicle Market Openness Index Report (May 2018)
Between 2015 and 2017, the number of NEV brands doubled and the number of NEV models available in the Chinese market tripled. This rapid development of China's new energy automotive industry is one result of the pro-EV policies made at the national and local levels. Because China is now transitioning from pilot- and policy-directed development and a more meaningful engagement with industry, challenges to NEV commercialization consist of mainly local deployment and market protectionism. This study proposed a new index for assessing relative market openness for competitive NEV development: "the NEV Market Openness Index". The index was developed on the basis of conventional diversity combined with penetration indexes, both adopted from biological studies, with a particular focus on passenger NEVs, and based on data from 23 Cities and 20 provinces.
China Passenger Vehicle Fuel Consumption Development Annual Report 2017 (December 2017)
iCET has been involved in the drafting of China's fuel standards since its first iteration and has been tracking its development since. This report is the 7th iCET Annual Report evaluating China's CAFC standard implementation status with recommendations for policy. This year the report, although covering various aspects of China's corporate FC development, places considerable focus on the joint management mechanism of China's existing CAFC standard and the newly introduced NEV credits system. The highlights of this year's report are grouped around three themes: (I) fuel efficiency and the CAFC standard regime, (II) NEV super-credits (flexibility mechanism) and CAFC performance, and, (III) the newly introduced NEV credits system and the CAFC standard regime.
Real-World Fuel Consumption Data Comparative Analysis-A case study based on two different consumer mobile apps in Beijing city
There are increased interests in new data sources for evaluating the effectiveness policies that guide the development of the transportation sector, especially after the emergence of several notable emission scandals. However, few studies analyze these new data sources. Their applicability and usefulness are rarely compared and not well understood. This study attempts to fill this gap by drawing comparisons between two new data sources useful for assessing the actual fuel consumption (FC) of passenger cars: semi-manual calculation of FC through a dedicated app (BearOil, or Xiaoxiong) and automated FC (and other data points) collection by an On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) app (ZhiJiaXing). The study compares data features, statistical robustness and analysis results of the two datasets in a Beijing case study.

iCET, EFC and CCTP successfully held the Zero Emissions Mobility workshop of the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco
The Energy Foundation China, iCET and the China Clean Transportation Partnership (CCTP) teamed up and organized a Zero-Emissions Mobility workshop in San Francisco on September 12. The workshop was held as a side event to the Global Climate Action Summit 2018.
iCET was invited sharing users real fuel consumption researches on China Automotive Testing Cycle (CATC) verification workshop
China Automotive Testing Cycle (CATC) project was initiated by China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) and launched in 2015, and was lead developed by its auto research arm, China Automotive Technology Research Center (CATARC). On January 6, the CATC verification workshop was held in Tianjin. A total of 34 research institutes, including 2 testing institutes, 17 domestic independent auto companies, 7 joint ventures and 8 foreign auto companies participated in the CATC verification research work which was released at the event, and about 50 organizations attended the discussion that followed the presentation of research results.
