LBNL researchers developed an integrated assessment approach to study the health and climate impacts of long-haul truck electrification across the United States.
This paper updates an earlier paper by the same title, summarizing the current state of play on such issues as electric truck benefits and challenges, current and imminent models, charging, electric rates, and policies to promote electric trucks.
Comprehensive Total Cost of Ownership Quantification for Vehicles with Different Size Classes and Powertrains
This TCO analysis builds on previous work to provide a comprehensive perspective of all relevant vehicle costs of ownership. In this report, the authors present what they believe to be the most comprehensive explicit financial analysis of the costs that will be incurred by a vehicle owner.
Despite strong and growing policy and consumer momentum toward their adoption, barriers remain and are impeding the growth of the zero-emission commercial vehicle (ZECV) segment. A new CALSTART White Paper, “Taking Commercial Fleet Electrification to Scale” offers structured guidance on how to catalyze ZECV markets and unlock the needed capital to finance fleet electrification.
In this report, the Goldman School of Public Policy analyzes the economic, human health, environmental, and electric grid impacts of a future in which ground transportation is all-electric.
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 analyzes the current capabilities and total cost of ownership for zero-emission freight trucks and finds that electric trucks appear poised to meet the performance demands for a large share of regional and long-haul trucking today.
This brief provides an overview of the state of the EV market and deployment in North Carolina while also highlighting travel patterns and transit agency statistics, along with snapshots of EV policy and program examples from other states.
This report offers the first comprehensive assessment of how major US fleet managers are approaching the electrification of their fleets. It is based on RMI’s survey of 91 fleet managers operating large fleets, as well as 18 in-depth interviews conducted with fleet managers representing a cross-section of fleet types.
