Despite considerable progress toward electrification, greater ICE efficiency and emission optimization are still needed to meet ever-stricter legal standards. For at least the next ten years, the ICE will be a viable market that will necessitate a concerted effort to ensure low emissions. PV Clean Mobility Technologies has a long history of system expertise in this sector, including modules, pumps, and valves that effectively reduce emissions from this source.
Our technologies increase vehicle efficiency while decreasing CO2 emissions. With a wide range of fuel management components that enable accurate fuel pumping and purging fumes so they do not escape into the environment, our innovative solutions pave the way for ICE propulsions journey to sustainable mobility.
Let's look at other factors that can help your fleet if you opt for fuel management systemsReduce costs by practicing good-driving habits
Driving at a speed limit is one way to improve fuel efficiency because engines are designed to travel at a speed limit, exceeding the speed limit often results in fuel waste.
Vehicle speeding and harsh braking events can be detected using fuel management systems. This data helps you understand and promote safe driving throughout your fleet.Reduced idling time
This is another way fuel management systems can help you identify good-driving habits and improve fuel efficiency. Long-haul trucks are often idle for six to eight hours per day. Wasted fuel expenses, particularly for larger fleets, can add up to a significant expense.
Fuel management data can also help fleet managers to find drivers who require coaching. Coaching can take various forms. You could, for example, set up automated alerts when specific driving behaviors are detected. This adaptability allows fleet managers to decide what is best for their fleet.Dynamic vehicle maintenance can help you save money on gas
It is difficult to rely on drivers to track their vehicle's maintenance and address problems on the road. Manufacturers remove the guesswork from maintenance. When vehicles perform optimally, fuel consumption is reduced.
Real-time diagnostic alerts, for example, provides you with immediate notification of engine fault codes. Regular engine maintenance ensures that your fleet runs at peak efficiency. Engines run more efficiently and require less maintenance when they are cleaned and supported. As a result, engine health is a good proxy for fuel efficiency.
Other non-engine maintenance improves fuel efficiency as well. For example, ensuring that a vehicle's tyres are properly inflated and aligned reduces rolling resistance. This significantly improves fuel efficiency and reduces fuel costs.
Fuel management systems that are automated help to ensure the sustainability of your fleet. Improving fuel management will reduce your fleet's environmental impact while also increasing customer loyalty. Customers are concerned about the carbon footprint of their purchases, so working on a green fleet may improve customer retention.Sustainability is not only a financial concern, but also an ethical one
Environmental stewardship is one way to show employees and customers that you care about the future of their communities. Because of the significant fuel savings and decreased reliance on variable fuel costs some fleet managers have already begun implementation of partially electric fleet.
The ability to implement real change is made possible by the freedom of lower fuel costs.
With these advantages, you can save money today and save for electrification or more fuel-efficient vehicles tomorrow.
Current trends in the automotive industry, such as zero-emission vehicles and carbon-neutral manufacturing, demonstrate the growing importance of sustainability. These trends are being driven not only by the implementation of stricter emission regulations or even quotas, but also by increased societal awareness on environmental and sustainability issues and also a growing consumer interest in sustainable vehicles. Furthermore, for many people, cars are no longer a status symbol. Sharing rather than purchasing is an appealing option for many consumers, and not just for environmental reasons.
As a result, automakers and suppliers must reconsider the sustainability of their products and value chains. Their greatest challenge here is to meet legislative requirements while also ensuring cost-effective manufacturing and meeting consumer demands. To achieve this balancing act, the industry must create long-term solutions that transform both the product and the value chain.
The automotive industry is undergoing radical transformation. Four major trends are driving this transformation: electromobility, shared mobility services, autonomous driving, and connected vehicles.
The rising demand for electric vehicles and innovative mobility solutions show how critical the issues of sustainability have become. Meanwhile, investors and lenders are paying closer attention, they want to understand the climatic risks that car manufacturers and suppliers face as well as avoid reputational damage from partnering with climate-unfriendly organizations.
This trend is being accelerated by both changing consumer preferences and political policies. To some extent, manufacturers and suppliers have already responded to these trends. For example, they are expanding their range of electric vehicles and offering flexible mobility solutions. Nonetheless, the potential is far from exhausted. There is still a long way to go before the automotive industry can be considered sustainable.
For a long time, climate change and its consequences have been part of a larger societal debate. As a result, legislators have made carbon emission regulations significantly more stringent in recent years . The regulation set mandatory fleet wide average CO2 emission reduction targets of 15% in 2025 for both cars and vans and then further reductions of 31% and 37.5% in 2030 for vans and cars respectively*. Car manufacturers are required to reduce carbon emissions both during vehicle manufacturing and during vehicle operation. Alternative powertrains, such as fuel cells, play an important role in this context.
As natural resources become increasingly scarce, the importance of sustainable value chains in the automotive industry grows. They are based on the 3R principle –Reduce, Reuse and Recycling. Transparency throughout the supply chain is critical. This is the only way to trace parts' origins and ensure sustainability throughout the value chain. With this in mind, automakers and suppliers are thinking about how to implement innovative solutions like a circular economy, battery recycling, biodegradable components, and sustainable processes in R&D and manufacturing.
As self-driving and connected vehicles become more common, the emphasis will shift to issues such as digital value unlocking, data protection, and data security. Either way, automakers and suppliers must define the digital functionalities and technologies needed to implement sustainable solutions.
Car manufacturers and suppliers are looking for feasible and cost-effective solutions that are also sustainable in order to incorporate sustainability into their business models. To do so, they must consider the following issues:
- Which powertrain solutions, such as electric batteries or fuel cells, are best for reducing carbon emissions in my company?
- What skills and expertise are required to implement these solutions?
- How can we calculate our carbon footprint and ensure that we are in compliance with the law?
To incorporate sustainability into their business models, car manufacturers and suppliers are looking for solutions that are feasible, cost-effective, and sustainable.
PV Clean Mobility Technologies seeks to provide cutting-edge, efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable solutions for the automotive industry. The design, development, and distribution of Fuel, Air, and Thermal Management systems for ICE, EV, and Hybrid vehicles in high-growth emerging markets in India and elsewhere are just a few of the clean mobility solutions provided by PV Clean Mobility Technologies.
