ECOWILL Project: Ecodriving – Widespread Implementation for Learner Drivers and Licensed Drivers
Austrian Energy Agency (AEA)
The ECOWILL project was launched in May 2010 and aims at reducing carbon emission by up to 8 Mt until 2015 by boosting the application of eco-driving all over Europe. To reach this ambitious target the project rolls out short duration eco-driving training programs for licensed drivers in 13 EU-countries and at the same time promotes the education of learner drivers in eco-driving.
The main objectives of the project therefore are the:
Integration of eco-driving in driving school curricula and driving tests
Establishment of minimum standards for contents and set up of eco-driving trainings and train-the-trainer seminars
Establishment of an eco-driving infrastructure which will keep the approach alive after the end of the project
Roll-out of (short-term) eco-driving trainings for licensed drivers
ECOWILL is a 36 month project funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) programme of the European Union and coordinated by the Austrian Energy Agency (AEA). CIECA is part of the "Eco-driving Advisory Board" (EAB) which assists the ECOWILL consortium.
