management is increasingly embracing technologies that reduce carbon emissions
and optimize operational costs. The AESS technology is one such innovation that
has shown promise in enhancing sustainability and reducing the TCO.
Technology and Sustainability
technology automatically turns off an engine when a vehicle comes to a halt and
restarts it when necessary. This mechanism leads to considerable fuel savings,
thereby reducing carbon emissions.
- Fuel Efficiency
and Emission Reductions: Multiple studies indicate
that AESS can improve fuel efficiency by up to 10% in city traffic.
Consequently, this directly results in a similar percentage reduction in CO2
- Impact on Air
Quality: Apart from CO2 reduction, AESS significantly
reduces the emissions of harmful particulates and nitrogen oxides (NOx),
contributing to improved air quality in urban environments.
Technology and Total Cost of Ownership
technology also contributes significantly to reducing TCO, as detailed below.
- Fuel Cost
Savings: As AESS improves fuel efficiency, there are
substantial savings in fuel costs. This contributes significantly to reducing
operating expenses over a vehicle's lifetime.
Costs: AESS can also lower maintenance costs. For
instance, less engine running time may result in extended engine life, less
frequent oil changes, and decreased wear and tear.
to Standard ICE Technology
contrast, conventional ICE vehicles offer none of these advantages. While ICE
technology is well established and understood, it is inherently less efficient,
with around 60% of the energy in fuel lost as waste heat.
This inefficiency results in higher fuel costs and CO2 emissions compared to
AESS equipped vehicles.
- Fuel Costs and
Emissions: The higher fuel consumption of
ICE vehicles results in higher operating costs and CO2 emissions compared to
- Maintenance and
Lifespan: Conventional ICE technology typically
involves higher maintenance costs and may have a shorter engine lifespan
compared to AESS technology.
integration of AESS technology in commercial fleet vehicles presents a
compelling case for both financial and environmental sustainability. Compared
to traditional ICE technology, AESS reduces fuel consumption, emissions, and
maintenance costs, leading to a lower TCO and a reduced environmental footprint.
