Fifth release of the CALCP research results by the Automotive Data of China Co., Ltd.
This research is made with the lifecycle assessment method and based on the China Automotive Life Cycle Database (CALCD), the China Automotive Life Cycle Assessment Model (CALCM) and the China Automotive Life Cycle Assessment Accounting Tool - OBS, under the support of the China Industrial Carbon Emissions Information System (CICES).
Firstly, lifecycle carbon emissions are calculated for single vehicles, enterprises and fleets for passenger and commercial vehicles sold in China in 2021, and the lifecycle carbon emission levels of China's current automotive products, enterprises and industries are analyzed and publicized.
Secondly, in order to promote the green and low-carbon development of the automotive industry, this research puts forward ten different transformation paths, including clean electricity, vehicle electrification, fuel decarbonization, low-carbon material, production digitalization, transportation intelligence, shared mobility, resource recycling, carbon capture, utilization and storage, and product ecologicalization, sets up three scenarios, namely reference scenario, carbon neutrality before 2060 scenario and carbon neutrality before 2050 scenario, and based on this, fully discusses the carbon emission reduction potential of different paths in different scenarios.
Finally, based on these research results and the challenges faced by the automotive industry at home and abroad in achieving the carbon peak and carbon neutrality goals, policies and measures and strategic suggestions for the low-carbon development of China's automotive industry are put forward, with purpose of leading the automotive industry to achieve the carbon neutrality goal and building a more brilliant, efficient and sustainable future.
This research data is obtained before April 28, 2022.
