Environmentally Friendly Vehicles

The Project Environmental Friendly Vehicles aimed to promote the adoption of more environmental and energy efficient vehicles, with higher efficient energy use, less air pollutants emissions, more silent engines and a wider range of energy solutions from the point of view security and replenishment.
This is based in the development of a useful tool, which will help the final decision makers and managers in the fleet selection process while the acquisition of new vehicles. This tool works in a comparative basis of the whole range of vehicles, based on a constantly updated database (by AUTOHOJE), which presents the unities that offer a better cost-benefit relation, taking into account a life cycle analysis. In this relation the environmental impact plays an important and essential role. Further analysis to the availability of new technologies as well as to the evolution of fuel prices are also considered.
This tool was, at the first phase, designed for the Lisbon Municipality, and nowadays is ready to be used in companies that wish to include energy and environmental criteria in the process of decision-making.
Moreover, it is previewed the introduction of a horizontal category (in the Central StatePurchasing) that will be based on the environmental and energy certification of vehicles, in partnership with the Portuguese Environmental Agency. In the future, this category would originate a creation of a label green for environmentally friendly vehicles. This certification will thus create a positive discrimination through lower financial expenses in the payment of parking fees from users of Environmental friendly vehicles.

The classification criteria used on this tool, which is the one assessed by experts in the field of transport are based on CO2 emissions, which must be less than or equal to 120 g / km, in the Euro classification. Vehicles should be classified as Euro 4 and Euro 5 and in the diversity of energy sources (hydrogen, electric, natural gas and compressed air covered).
