McKinsey estimates eTruck adoption will exceed 30 percent by 2030 across different vehicle classes: light commercial vehicle (LCV), medium-duty truck (MDT), and heavy-duty truck (HDT). McKinsey predicts growth from 2.7 million units by 2025 to 11 million units by 2030 in China, Europe, and the US. This is a result of the alignment of several key …
In a paper by Bracco et. al., an optimization model is defined for the design of a smart energy infrastructure integrating different technologies to satisfy the electrical demand of a given site. The considered smart energy infrastructure includes a photovoltaic plant, electrical storage systems, electric vehicles (EVs), and charging stations.
The objective of the Smart, clean Energy and Electric Vehicles (EVs) for the City (SEEV4-City) project is to demonstrate smart electric mobility solutions, integrating renewable-energy sources, and encouraging take-up in cities. The SEEV4-City project key reports are available. Head to the publications page for the latest reports.
By 2030, in the Netherlands, all new cars must be zero-emission. The logistics sector will also switch from fossil fuels to electric power. This transition will only be possible if policies are made now and implemented to create a charging infrastructure that works well for the sector. How are the plans progressing and what are …
There is a major role for electric mobility in the Dutch Climate Agreement presented in June 2019. Almost 12 percent of CO2 emissions are produced by road transport, and 30 to 35 percent of the CO2 emissions in road transport are related to city logistics. The Dutch Climate Agreement states that road transport must reduce …
Reducing GHG emissions requires smarter city logistics and zero-emission vehicles. Because the availability of electric vans and trucks is increasing rapidly, the electrification of freight to and from the city is obvious for companies. But electrification also raises questions for companies and the government.
Entering into the world of electric mobility, we have to prepare for a local public-charging infrastructure for e-mobility. Over the past five years, the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) – researchers, teachers, and students, together with municipalities, research institutes and companies – have gathered and analyzed the charging data of public-charging infrastructure in the Netherlands.
A paper by the European Federation for Transport and Environment looks at the potential of battery electric heavy-duty trucking in the EU, in particular for the more difficult long-haul segment, by analyzing the technical feasibility, regulatory and market enablers and inhibitors, together with environmental impacts.
Electric Freight Vehicles (EFVs) are a promising and increasingly popular alternative to conventional trucks in urban pickup/delivery operations. A research topic is to develop trip-based Tank-to-Wheel (TTW) analyses/models for EFVs energy consumption. There are just a few studies in this area.
Despite its environmental benefits, the amount of Electric Vehicles (EVs) in use within the European Union 28 is still very limited. Poor penetration might be explained by certain factors that dissuade potential buyers. To balance these factors and promote electro-mobility, EU Member States have established incentives to increase demand. However, the various measures are scattered.
