Zero-emissions trucks in Europe: The state of the art

In the European Union Transport White paper, released in 2011, the EU set an ambitious target for reducing its greenhouse gas emissions: an 80% reduction in 2050 compared to 1990 levels. Taking the steps necessary to turn that possibility into reality is crucial to meeting long-term climate goals in the transport sector. And decarbonising road freight, which is one of the fastest-growing contributors to CO2 emissions of the European transport sector, is one of the keys.

The webinar is based on a recent report prepared by CE Delft (Netherlands) and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) for the ICCT. It presents a comprehensive survey of leading-edge zero-emissions technologies for short- and long-haul on-road freight carriers.  The analysis anticipates that different zero-emissions technologies will find favor in different settings.  GHG emission scenarios, total cost of ownership, and potential policies will also be discussed.
