"Even as manufacturers explore new powertrains to meet the needs of their customers, there is no doubt that clean diesel will remain the prime mover for the trucking industry, offering the greatest combination of value to truckers in the form of increasing efficiency, reliability, performance, and economical operation and ownership," said Allen Schaeffer, executive director of the Diesel Technology Forum. "The new environmental performance achieving near-zero emissions further ensures that clean diesel is a solution for achieving current and future clean air and efficiency standards." "We're seeing continuous improvement in efficiency and performance of clean diesel power," continued Schaeffer. "Manufacturers are working toward meeting the challenge of the Phase 2 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction and Fuel Economy rules by closer integration and optimization of engines and transmissions, along with improving emissions control system design and total vehicle integration.  Additional gains in efficiency and further reductions in emissions will define the next generation of clean diesel power." This year, ACT Research analysts expect the North American Class 3-8 truck market to come in at more than 250,000 vehicles. According to projections by The Fuels Institute, diesel will remain the predominant fuel for commercial vehicles, even in 2025 when it maintains 96 percent of the medium- and heavy-duty market. "Diesel powers well over 90 percent of all commercial trucks on the road today. Of that population, approximately 30 percent of today's on-road fleet is powered by the newest generation of clean diesel technology. This new technology is more fuel efficient and lowest in emissions, resulting in 4.2 billion / $2,640 saved per truck per year, and overall emission reductions of 43 million tonnes CO2, 21 million tonnes NOx and 1.2 million tonnes PM," said Schaeffer. "If every one of America's Class 3-8 trucks on the road today was powered by new generation of clean diesel technology, the fuel savings, emission reductions and cost savings across the fleet would be astounding." Announcements at NACV indicate that manufacturers are seeing strong orders for the new generation of commercial trucks with the newest generation of clean diesel power through the end of 2017 and into 2018, as truckers look to upgrade their fleets and expand their service offerings. The Diesel Technology Forum is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of diesel engines, fuel and technology. Forum members are leaders in clean diesel technology and represent the three key elements of the modern clean-diesel system: advanced engines, vehicles and equipment, cleaner diesel fuel and emissions-control systems.

The global maritime market is on a strong growth trajectory, and this project aims to harness that growth to create economic and employment benefits for Europe. On the one hand, growth is driven by commercial megatrends such as demand for marine/offshore renewable energy, fish products and emerging potential for blue biotech products; on the other hand, there is high demand for efficient use and management of the ocean resource, as described in the EU Integrated Maritime Strategy. Increasing Europes innovation capacity in maritime resource efficiency will underpin successful exploitation of these growth opportunities. Traditionally, the maritime industries have been slow to explore how demands for resource efficiency would impact on them. Fish stock depletion and rising fuel costs have, of course, risen quickly up the political and commercial agendas, and shipping companies as well as builders and engine manufacturers have invested in improving fuel efficiency. However, the wider needs for maritime resource efficiency are posing challenges which in many cases lack viable solutions. Emerging marine activities (for example in exploiting marine renewable energy) are presenting new opportunities for innovation, but are also highlighting areas where further improvements in resource efficiency need to be achieved. European member states contain a number of Regional Research Driven Clusters (RRDCs) which are active in the fields of maritime development and marine & coastal resource management. This project will add significant value to this existing cluster infrastructure, via three main approaches that will support their long-term development and sustainability: Facilitating interaction and knowledge exchange between RRDCs each focused on its world-class strengths (Smart Specialisation); Raising the effectiveness of RRDCs by strengthening shared approaches to innovation support Using RRDC activities to stimulate involvement of supply chain companies
