Freight transport, 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 kind investments. In this session we will address these problems:
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 60+ OEMs and identifying 120+ 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.
ACEA has recently published a Position paper – Review of CO2 emission standards regulation for heavy-duty vehicles and assessed vehicles availabilities and the infrastructure requirements to accelerate adoption.
Linking offer and demand
In a very fragmented market in terms of demand and with current limitations in availability, ALICE considers that concrete activities to link offer and demand of first of a kind solutions is critical for adoption acceleration. ENTRANCE project is supporting de-risking investments and practically accelerate innovation adoption. ENTRANCE is exploring opportunities of trucks purchase aggregation and is inviting carriers and logistics service providers to join forces in order to speed up adoption.
Welcome and introduction. John Smith. Head of Sustainable Infrastructure and Facilities Management at An Post and ALICE Efficient and Low Emissions Assets and Energy, Download presentation
John will welcome attendees and share a bit of the context, introduce this activity field within ALICE and share will the objectives of the session.
Thomas shared the recently published position paper on CO2 emissions standards and will drive on the needs for infrastructure and priorities as a result of the study: Electric trucks: new data maps out priority locations for charging points.
PNO shared the summary of the market analysis performed including 128 models of BE and FCE vans and trucks. The list of models and further information is available at ENTRANCE-Platform in the following link: https://app.entrance-platform.eu/knowledge-hub/market-analysis.html. The only requirement to access the market analysis is to register for free on the platform.
Linking offer and demand through ALICE vehicles availability survey. John Smith. Download presentation
John shared the results of the ALICE survey on vehicle availability and how we plan to connect offer and demand through ALICE network.
Fernando introduced the initiative and invited shippers, freight forwarders, logistics service providers and carriers owning fleets and willing to transition road transport to zero emissions (Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV), Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV) or hybrid BEV-FCEV) to join forces with other carriers.
