ALICE presented the ZEFES project for the ECTA members.

Thursday, February 29th, 2024

On 30th January, the ZEFES project (Zero Emissions flexible vehicle platforms with modular powertrains serving the long-haul Freight Eco System)  presented its objectives and initial findings during a webinar for European Clean Trucking Alliance ECTA members.

The ZEFES project started on the 1st of January 2023 and will continue for 3,5 years. The use of zero tailpipe emission vehicles for long-distance heavy-duty transport will be demonstrated during the project, which is an important pathway towards achieving Green Deal and emission reduction targets. In the ZEFES project, 4 truck OEMs, 2 trailer OEMs, suppliers, logistic operators, and research partners will work together towards the overall goal of accelerating the integration of ZEVs for long distance heavy transport, by focusing on efficiency improvements, mass production capabilities and demonstrating the use of the technologies in daily operations.

The webinar covered the objectives of the ZEFES projects, the findings of the end-user needs and requirements assessment, the tools that will be developed during the project, the AEVETO cluster and how you can engage with the project and finally the outlook for the future.
