Energy Efficiency for Transport 

Sector Lead: Pierpaolo Cazzola 

Pierpaolo Cazzola coordinates the work of the transport unit of the IEA Energy Technology Policy Division in the Directorate of Sustainability, Technology and Outlooks, including the development of the IEA Mobility Model.

Previously, Pierpaolo worked at the United Nations (as Secretary of the Working Group on Pollution and Energy of the World Forum for the Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations), the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, and the Environment Directorate of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the Energy Statistics Division of the IEA. 

Pierpaolo received master degrees in aerospace engineering, aeronautics and energy economics from the Polytechnic of Turin, the University of Glasgow and the Institut Français du Pétrole.

This course was co-hosted with the Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI). 

As Transport is a key growth sector, it is important to ensure it follows a sustainable path, capturing all possible energy efficiency benefits. Challenges however abound and this course will discuss in-depth the main policy options available and issues associated with their implementation across the entire value chain.

This course is suitable for professionals whose work directly relates to energy efficiency in transport. 

Topics covered in the course:

  • Good practice energy efficiency policy recommendations for transport
  • Transport modelling and tools
  • Financial mechanisms for implementing energy efficiency for transport
  • Energy efficiency indicators for transport
  • Developing a policy and implementation framework
  • Fuel economy standards
