Call for public input on the draft new methodology "AM00XX: Electric taxiing systems for airplanes" (10 July to 8 August 2015, 24:00 GMT)

The Methodologies Panel sought inputs on the draft new methodology “AM00XX: Electric taxiing systems for airplanes”. The draft new methodology covers project activities that implement and operate electric-taxiing (e-taxi) systems in commercial airplanes and was developed top-down in collaboration with the International Civil Aviation Organization.

Stakeholders were invited to provide their inputs on the draft new methodology, as contained in annex 11 of the report of the 67th meeting of the Methodologies Panel using the commenting table found here.

The panel would like to receive inputs from the public on the draft methodology on the following issues:

a)      Whether the Radiative Force Index (RFI) should be included in the leakage emissions due to transporting the extra weight of the e-taxi systems?

b)      Whether such an energy efficiency measure may be considered automatically additional for three years, taking into account that the project activity is a fuel-saving measure but not yet in commercial use;

c)      The applicability of the methodology to the type of flights, relating to the two options as presented in paragraph 3 of the draft methodology.

The call for inputs from stakeholders was open from 10 July to 8 August 2015 (24:00 GMT).
