The Road Freight Zero initiative

Road freight currently generates 15% of European CO2 emissions. About 70% of those emissions come from medium- and heavy-duty trucking (MDT/HDT). These are the hardest-to-abate segments. Nevertheless, there is a growing consensus that the zero-emission (ZE) truck industry is on course to deliver competitive business cases for the decarbonization of these fleets – through battery …

Battery electric trucks can achieve TCO parity with diesel trucks the next 10 years

A new study by ICCT analyzes the total cost of ownership (TCO) of battery-electric trucks (BET) in the highest emitting road freight segment: long-distance tractor-trailers. The research covers seven European countries, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Poland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom, which account for more than 75% of truck sales in the European Union …

Research: different charging strategies for electric vehicle fleets in city logistics

The transition from diesel-driven urban freight transport towards more electric urban freight transport turns out to be challenging in practice. A primary concern for transport operators is how to find a reliable charging strategy for a more extensive electric vehicle fleet that provides flexibility based on different daily mission profiles within that fleet while also …

Research: the role of incentives in zero-emission last-mile deliveries in California

Last-mile deliveries usually occur within urban areas where logistics operations increase congestion and emissions, as well as associated roadway-related health impacts. A new paper evaluates the role of incentives for zero and near-zero emission vehicle (ZEV) technologies in last-mile delivery operations. Specifically, the study investigates the total cost of ownership and life cycle environmental impacts associated with …

Research: the TCO of hydrogen vehicles in urban logistics – diesel and BEV still win

Freight transport accounts for 8 to 15% of total traffic flow in urban areas within the European Union. The majority of these deliveries are undertaken by diesel-powered vehicles with disproportionate levels of CO2, NOx, and particulate matter emissions. Accordingly, a variety of strategic options have been advanced as key solutions for addressing fossil fuel demand …

I-CVUE project provides TCO tool for e-mobility

I-CVUE is an ‘Intelligent Energy Europe Programme’ co-funded project. It has the ambition to reduce CO2-emissions in urban environments by increasing the number of electric vehicles (EV’s) in large fleets in urban areas by mentoring fleet operators and manager. The programme also resulted in a framework governments can use to set up tailor-made fleet incentive …
