Towards a U.S. zero-emission tractor-trailer fleet in 2040: Infrastructure needs and costs

The transportation sector is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States. Class 7 and 8 tractor-trailers, which make up approximately 13% of the on-road medium- and heavy-duty fleet and generate approximately 60% of its greenhouse gas emissions, are an important target for transitioning to zero emissions. This webinar will present new research on the scope of charging and hydrogen fueling infrastructure needed to support a 100% zero-emission tractor-trailer fleet by 2040. In addition, the webinar will explore estimates of the cumulative infrastructure investments required for the transition. These findings can help inform ongoing infrastructure discussions at the federal level that support investments in climate change mitigation.
