One way to save fuel: 

One way to save fuel There is another one!

ECO-DRIVING Energy efficient Driving Style and In-Car-Devices : 

ECO-DRIVING Energy efficient Driving Style and In-Car-Devices improves road safety, fuel efficiency, saves money and combats climate change Willy Raimund, Austrian Energy Agency

To start with…: 

To start with… Not to drive at all is the best way to save fuel/energy Substitute car trips by env. friendly modes 1/3 of all trips shorter than 5km But IF you have to go by car, do it the ECO-DRIVING (E-D for short) way

E-D What do we mean? : 

E-D What do we mean? Shift into higher gear below 2500 rpm Maintain steady speed in highest gear possible Look ahead and anticipate traffic flow Decelerate leaving the vehicle in gear No aprupt accelerating or braking

Add. tipps to save fuel: 

Add. tipps to save fuel Switch off the engine at short stops Get rid of unnecessary weight Avoid roof racks and roof load Optimize use of Air condition and rear-window defroster Check tyre pressure regularly Make use of in-car devices

The advantages of E-D: 

The advantages of E-D Enhanced road safety Reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 10-15% in average Reduced costs (individually, fleets, economy) Less wear and tear, less maintainance costs Less noise nuisance increased comfort all at equal travel time

The advantages of E-D: 

The advantages of E-D „No regret“, cost-extensive measure to reduce GHG emissions from transport eg. NL calculates 5-7 € per reduced ton of CO2 „WOP“ – Window of opportunity regarding high crude oil and fuel prices

The disadvantages of E-D: 

The disadvantages of E-D No major ones have yet occured! No rebond effects up to now (in order that people would drive more because of less fuel they use) Stakeholders (eg. program Manager, developers, suppliers, marketing specialists): despite of all advantages it can still sometimes be challenging to convince them (eg. Driving school organisations)

E-D The scope: 

E-D The scope Training of driver trainers (and examiners) Contents in driving school curricula Awareness raising activities, e.g. Competition „Spritsparwettbewerb“ in AT TV commercials in GE and NL PR Trainings for drivers (cars, buses, trucks)

E-D The scope: 

E-D The scope Support to set up national programs eg. Canada, Baltic states, ES) Research and scientific proof eg. enhanced road safety, long term effects, effect of simulator trainings or in-car devices In-car devices (support), Simulators and computer games

Major findings general: 

Major findings general Advantages of ECO-DRIVING are widely accepted Quality Management is a key Marketing for different target groups Driving Simulator can be effective Written communication alone helps

Major findings strategy: 

Major findings strategy New drivers education is the key to the future Obligatory education for truck and bus drivers Time saving and cheap products (Simulator, Spritsparstunde,...) are a „catcher“ On-board instruments - the only channel to all advanced drivers Integration into climate protection and road safety policy

ECO-DRIVING Austria 2004: Start of ECO-DRIVING Austria ( Austrian Energy Agency together with Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management (“Lebensministerium”) Federal Branch Association of Driving Schools The programme is part of the “klima:aktiv->mobil” initiative aiming to fulfil the Kyoto targets

ECO-DRIVING Austria Main elements: 

ECO-DRIVING Austria Main elements ECO-DRIVING Championship All drivers are invited to take part in this championship in fuel-saving driving style. The competition aims at spreading the idea of ECO-DRIVING among drivers and also among driving schools. ECO-DRIVING Certificate for driver trainers In pilot seminars some 20 driving teachers have been educated and certified to ECO-DRVIVING-trainers with a certain quality standard. Co-operation with fleet operators Professional drivers in fleets are invited to take part in an ECO-DRIVING training. From fleets with own trainers (government fleets, railway and bus companies, army etc.) these trainers are invited to take part in the certification courses. Awareness raising, marketing and public relations The upper parts are accompanied by elements of PR works such as radio spots, print media coverage, folders with tips to save fuel etc.

Energy Efficiency: 

Energy Efficiency Drive in high gears at low rpm ECO-DRIVING reduces fuel consumption Evaluations show that the effect of trainings is sustainable Reductions in fuel consumption from 10-15% are usual 60 km/h


Noise ECO-DRIVING reduces noise nuisance The noise of 32 cars at 2000 rpm equals the noise of 1 car at 4000 rpm

Environmental Impacts:

... examples for additional tools PC game database for fuel efficient cars fuel consumption on-board comp. measurement (built in) fuel economy label (retrofitting)


In-car-devices Help to monitor and reduce fuel consumption (and follow the E-D principles): econometer eco-revolution-meter cruise control bordcomputer (fuel consumption measurement) gear shift indicator accelerator limiter


In-car-devices Revolution counter prohibits the vehicle from being driven at excessive, and therefore very inefficient, engine speeds. Cruise control Cruise control makes it easy to maintain a steady speed On-board computer Regarding actual fuel consumption the driver gets immediate feedback on his or her driving behaviour and the influence on fuel consumption. Econometers and shift indicators a fuel consumption meter. A shift indicator shows the driver when it is most fuel-efficient to shift up. Speed limiters and/or RPM limiters Speed limiters and/or RPM limiters help avoiding unperceived speeding and excessive engine speeds. All devices mentioned save about 5% fuel. Combined with driving style training the benefits are significantly higher.

Back to the future: 

Back to the future Let us go to the year 2012, the end of the Kyoto period and see some ECO-DRIVING news

2012 ECO-DRIVING News: 

2012 ECO-DRIVING News Austria was the last of the 27 EU-countries which introduced ECO-DRIVING in the second phase of driving licence procedure to adapt to the harmonised European driving licence directive Thus every year 3.500.000 new drivers are educated in ECO-DRIVING

2012 ECO-DRIVING News: 

2012 ECO-DRIVING News 6 years ago, obligatory further training for truck and bus drivers has been introduced by the European Commission including an ECO-DRIVING module By now no truck driver on European streets without ECO-DRIVING education

2012 ECO-DRIVING News: 

2012 ECO-DRIVING News Increasing transport CO2 emissions have provoked massive payments of EU-countries in the Kyoto mechanism ECO-DRIVING has reduced overall CO2 emissions from transport by 2%, thus saving EURO every year. With an investment of 7 EURO in ECO-DRIVING in 2002 the Dutch Government has saved 50 EURO for the certificate for 1 ton of CO2

2012 ECO-DRIVING News: 

2012 ECO-DRIVING News 2-liter cars with integrated ECO-DRIVER mode have gained a share of 5% of new cars New directive prescribes fuel saving cycle for all automatic gear boxes sold in the EU Intelligent Speed Adaptation and REV-control manage the cars in more than 95% of driving time

2025 ECO-DRIVING News: 

2025 ECO-DRIVING News Evaluators of historic programs choose ECO-DRIVING as a case study from cradle to grave (1990 - 2015) The main message: It‘s success made the ECO-DRIVING program unnecessary

3 points for discussion: 

3 points for discussion (How) Can you make use of E-D in your setting? Estimate the effects of EU-wide E-D implementation in terms of reduced tons CO2 How to overcome possible obstacles when implementing E-D?

Inputs for discussion: 

Inputs for discussion The European Climate Change Programme (ECCP) in 2001 calculated a reduction potential for driver education and ecodriving of at least 50 Mton CO2 emission reductions by 2010. This would mean savings for consumers of about € 20 Billion per year. Companies: For Dutch national transportation (80,000 km per year) this would mean average cost savings of about € 800 per year per vehicle. For Dutch international transport the cost savings may count up to € 1,400 per year per vehicle. Average saving per passenger car and year: 120 € Amortisation of average E-D training: takes 3 months (comp.) to max. 6 months (cars)
