Decarbonizing Road Freight Transport vehicles roadmap

Thursday, October 5th, 2023

Why this webinar

Transportation, logistics companies and shippers are developing and implementing their decarbonization roadmaps. Road freight transport decarbonization is critical to achieve climate objectives. Battery Electric and Fuel Cell Hydrogen Electric vehicles are key technologies in development and expected to be widely available in future but still requiring acceleration to de-risk first in a kind investment.

In this session, we will provide an update regarding the session last year (link) we will address these topics:

  • Vehicles availability

As part of ALICE Efficient and Low Emissions Assets and Energy thematic group and ENTRANCE project a market analysis has been performed gathering information from 84+ OEMs and identifying 159 zero emission vehicles models in the market or hitting the market soon. Moreover, 40 vehicles OEMs have been contacted to gather further information on vehicles availability. The market analysis reports can be found on the ARRIVAL platform for free.

  • Policy developments

The European Union has increased their push towards decarbonization through different policy initiatives part of the European Green Deal and the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy. Concretely, the review of emission standards for heavy-duty vehicles, the Alternatives Fuel Infrastructure Regulation, the Revision of the Weights and Dimensions Directive are important files in support of advancing implementation of electric vehicles but is it enough to achieve the objectives?

  • Linking offer and demand

In a very fragmented market in terms of demand and with current limitations in availability and sound business models, ALICE considers that concrete activities to link offer and demand of first of a kind solution is critical for adoption acceleration. ENTRANCE project is supporting de-risking investments and practically accelerate innovation adoption.
