Read outlines of potential fuel savings, estimates of implementation costs and recommendations for the best implementation strategy of SRF research in the SRF Output Summaries. The aim is to consolidate and clarify some of the research outputs which can bring direct commercial and social benefits to member companies.
Interpretation of results
For each research project, a table is provided containing: the potential fuel savings; implementation costs; and implementation timetable. These are presented on approximate numerical scales so that the effectiveness of the various outputs can be compared.
It is important to note that the % fuel savings refer to the benefits for an individual vehicle in comparison with a suitable reference vehicle (typically the same vehicle in unmodified form). The overall benefits to an operator, or indeed the UK as a whole, will depend on the level of take-up of the result across the vehicle fleet.
