The global market for truck-based freight transportis estimated to grow by greater than 4% from current 4.2 Trillion USD to 5.5 Trillion USD by 2030. It is expected there will be 4 million trucks by 2030. Trucks account for 18% world’s freight transportation and 40% CO2 emissions of road transport. Due to almost complete dependency on fossil fuels, this sector provides huge opportunity of de-carbonisation through electrification.
e-Trucks are catching up in medium to large size fleets globally with both the OEMs and fleet operators driving the market. It is estimated that 15% of global truck sales by 2030 will be e-Trucks. The fast-growing e-commerce industry will add to the demand for long hauls as well as LCVs for intra-city distributions.
In long haul applications, the per day running of trucks is higher than current available range capabilities of e-Trucks. This will require en-route fast charging options to be set across their geographical coverage. Both the high range battery packs and fast charging infrastructure adds up to the capital requirement. Inspite of lower operating costs, there are concerns on supply availability and operational feasibility, which has limited its growth.
This Webinar will discuss scope of electrification of trucks, technical aspects, feasibility, manufacturer and user perspective and bring experts from multiple domains – e-Truck Manufacturer, Logistics Provider and Charging Specialist to discuss following:
- What is role of e-Trucks in decarbonization of freight transportation?
- What are e-Truck segmentations based on applications like long haul vs. intracity, and other use cases?
- What are the techno-commercial considerations (kerb mass, payload, range, speed, gradeability, charging, TCO etc.) for viability of e-Trucks in different applications?
- What different charging infrastructure requirements and techno-commercial considerations for different e-Truck applications?
