143. The representative of the United States of America informed AC.3 about the final results of part A of the mandate of the IWG on Electric Vehicles and the Environment (EVE) on data and information gathering (WP.29-170-31). He referred to the model that had been developed to evaluate the energy consumption of a particular vehicle (WP.29-170-30 and WP.29-170-29). He presented ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2016/116 on the request for authorization to develop amendments to UN GTR No. 15 and continue certain research items on environmental requirements for electric vehicles. He explained that the authorization request in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2016/116 corresponded to part B of the original mandate (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/AC.3/40). He informed AC.3 about the request under each of the areas of work:

  1. develop an amendment to UN GTR No. 15 to establish a procedure for determining the powertrain performance of electrified vehicles;
  2. continue research on the topic of battery performance and durability with the aim of returning to AC.3 seeking authorization for relevant activities once this additional research would be completed;
  3. approach the Group of Experts on Energy Efficiency (GEEE) and possibly the Executive Secretary of UNECE to request that they continue work on the method of stating energy consumption with the support of the IWG on EVE.
He mentioned that under the proposal, the recyclability topic would be removed from the mandate.
