The United States economy is heavily dependent on the functionality of our freight and goods transportation services. Road freight transportation in the United States is projected to grow steadily in the coming decades, and electrified vehicles are emerging as a cleaner, cost-effective alternative to diesel trucks that can be powered by American electricity.
This report summarizes the knowledge gathered from a series of four interactive webinar discussions on electrifying public and private fleets, commissioned and convened by the International Zero Emission Vehicle Alliance.
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.
This report examines recent trends in transportation electrification with a focus on EV-related filings by investor-owned electric utilities.
Regional haul, heavy-duty trucking operations are good candidates for electrification due to the segment’s relatively short-hauls and return-to-base operations. The Guidance Report proposes a three-part framework that the industry can use to prioritize regions for electric truck deployment.
Getting to 20 Million EVs by 2030: Opportunities for the Electricity Industry in Preparing for an EV Future
A $2 million pilot project, funded through the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, allowed three school districts to purchase Type C electric school buses and Level 2 bidirectional vehicle-to-grid (V2G) charging stations to test the technology in cold weather environments in Massachusetts.
This brief from the ICCT finds that continued policy support, as well as innovations in vehicle technology and progress in infrastructure build-out, will be needed to accelerate growth rates and ensure that the goals for full vehicle electrification are achieved.
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).
Electric utilities in three West Coast states have announced the results of a study that could lead to significant reductions of pollution from freight transportation up and down the Pacific Coast and create jobs in an economy hit hard by the novel coronavirus.
