The main objective is to determine the viable options for zero emission heavy goods vehicles (HGVs). I wish to achieve a clear roadmap, which identifies what are the feasible options for zero emission HGVs for ALICE members. In the next 2-3 years I expect we will have information on the availability of different zero emission HGVs, both BEV and hydrogen fuel cell and information on the timescales of implementation of both the infrastructure and vehicles. I also expect to have information available on interim solutions for reducing emissions in HGV fleets.
Which is the Output/what do you want to deliver?
- To deliver a document that details the state of play of the different zero emission HGV technologies and infrastructure. For both vehicles and infrastructure, the document will identify the challenges, barriers, constraints and what is a realistic timeframe for implementation of various zero emission HGVs (BEV, fuel cell). In the process of developing this document there will be significant knowledge sharing. I would also aim to establish this topic as a priority for research and funding programmes.
How can ALICE members contribute/participate?
- Shared document on the ALICE intranet where members can include their questions and ideas.
- Provide feedback on the questionnaire before the final versions are completed.
- Provide/Share contacts of OEMs
