The policy recommendations outlined here focus on the cost of charging infrastructure, the greatest challenge of electrifying heavy-duty trucks as identified by groundbreaking research from Gladstein, Neandross & Associates.
This study seeks to use real fleet data to evaluate the costs and capabilities of charging systems, and the impact of electric rate design and infrastructure policy on the ability of fleets to deploy electric vehicles in the heavy duty market segment.
This report focuses on the important role that multipollutant standards for passenger vehicles that ensure all vehicles sold in 2035 are zero-emitting would play in that landscape and the substantial benefits they would deliver.
Broader collaboration and a new generation of finance solutions are needed to achieve a zero-emissions future by 2050.
Race to zero: How manufacturers are positioned for zero-emission commercial trucks and buses in North America
This paper summarizes the new vehicle sales market for Class 2 through Class 8 heavy-duty truck and buses in the United States and Canada. In addition, it profiles the early market for zero-emission HDVs and provides a snapshot of the battery-electric and hydrogen fuel cell products available across different truck and bus segments.
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has proposed new zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) requirements through its Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) proceeding. This report evaluates the proposed rule using the California Energy Policy Simulator (EPS).
