    Vehicle fuel efficiency performance can be improved by improving various vehicular features like aerodynamics, tyres, transmission etc. Of these features, tyres offer the maximum potential to improve the overall vehicle fuel efficiency as the rolling resistance of tyres alone is estimated to contribute up to 20 to 30 percent of the total fuel consumed by the vehicle. As such, introduction of efficiency standards for tyres can enable significant fuel savings. Therefore, we supported this initiative to evaluate the existing standards for tyres in India and identify the key interventions required for establishing a stringent tyre standards and labelling programme in India.

    Bus fuel efficiency can be improved by detecting and replacing old and worn bus components, responsible for more fuel consumption and higher emissions. This can be done by adopting a preventive maintenance regime for bus fleet which involves a schedule of planned inspection and maintenance activities. Shakti initiated this project to analyse the existing national and international best practices on inspection and maintenance of bus fleet and recommend a set of guiding principles for bus operators to develop their fleet inventory data base for maintenance, design ways to identify the causes of poor fuel economy and scheduling inspection and maintenance of buses.

    Fuel consumption of a bus depends on both technical and operational parameters such as vehicle design, driver behaviour, maintenance practices, road conditions and traffic patterns. Out of these the quickest and the most cost effective way to achieve better fuel efficiency, particularly in case of existing fleets, is through improved driver behaviour. Improved driver behaviour has the potential of increasing bus fuel economy by 7-10 percent. We supported this initiative to conduct training programmes for drivers from State road Transport Undertakings (STUs) on fuel efficient driving practices. A total of 1800 drivers from across the country were trained.

    Cities can become liveable if its citizens are aware of the risks posed by air pollution and inefficient urban mobility systems. Public opinion is key to influencing what is discussed amongst key government officials, in the media, and in the community, and critical to demanding change. This initiative presents an in-depth analysis of the impact of air quality and urban mobility issues in Kanpur, Kolkata and Hyderabad, through citizen engagement.

    Deteriorating air quality in Indian cities is a growing and serious concern. A major cause of this is the increasing emissions from the rapidly growing transport sector. To curb this, while stricter emission and fuel efficiency standards are required for new vehicles, there is also a need to have better inspection and maintenance practices for in-use vehicles. In this context, Shakti initiated this project to conduct research on reforming the in-use vehicle testing and compliance mechanism.

    Heavy Duty Vehicles (HDVs) comprise only 8 percent of the total vehicle fleet in India but consume nearly 38 percent of the total diesel consumed in the country and contribute approximately 60 percent of the total carbon dioxide emissions from the transport sector. Large amount of fuel savings and emission reduction can be achieved with fuel efficiency improvements of HDVs through formulation and implementation of fuel efficiency standards. Towards this, Shakti has supported various projects to address different issues impeding the standards formulation process.
