Jessica Brakora, EPA research engineer for EPA’s Office of Transportation and Air Quality, explains how customer choice could affect a trailer’s ability to comply with upcoming Phase 2 regulations for greenhouse gas and fuel economy of heavy vehicles. Each scenario included customer refusal to buy at least one of the technologies that could help trailers comply with the regulation. The technologies include aerodynamic devices, low rolling-resistance tires, automatic tire inflation system, and weight reduction. In these examples, all trailers complied with what EPA believes will be included in the regulation.
