FROM THE MINUTES 2018

It's time to take up the challenge of decarbonizing the Class 8 heavy-duty trucking fleets that currently fuel our on-demand lifestyle while emitting lots of CO2.


But it won’t be easy. Countries, companies and cities are reluctant to make massive investments in charging stations with so few electric cars on the road. Car buyers are wary of unproven new technologies, wondering whether the charging infrastructure will be widespread enough to quell their range anxiety. Car makers haven’t invested in a common charging grid, or even settled on a unified charging plug design. Like any transition, it’s a chicken-or-the-egg dilemma.


THE NUMBERS DON'T LOOK GOOD

SWEDEN : 30% of vehicle emissions come from heavy-duty trucks GERMANY : 2% of the road network produces 60% of vehicle emissions, mostly from heavy trucks CANADA : Emissions from passenger vehicles are 12% and falling, but for heavy-duty trucks, the number is 9% and rising


E-HIGWAY TO THE RESCUE

Siemens and Scania are collaborating on an e-highway solution that employs the same basic technology that has powered Europe’s electrified rail network for over a century, at half to one-third of the cost of competing solutions. If many or most heavy trucks could draw electrical power from overhead power lines while driving, a massive drop in CO2 emissions could be achieved by electrifying a tiny fraction of the road network. For instance, the German Environment Ministry has calculated that only 4,000-8,000 km of roadways would need to be electrified, out of a total of 640,000 km of roads.


WELCOME TO THE VALLEY

The Auvergne Rhone Alpes region in southwestern France is the site of the most ambitious clean hydrogen project in all of Europe, in which cities, companies and the country team up to create France’s first Zero-Emission Valley (ZEV).At a glance:

  • Eight million people
  • Three major cities : Lyon, Grenoble and Clermont-Ferrand
  • An industrial, technological and R&D hub that comprises 80% of the country's hydrogen sector


The Zero-Emission Valley involves multiple sectors of society collaborating to create clean energy much closer to where it is used. The three-year plan will:

  • Deploy 1,000 fuel cell vehicles (FCVs), with

financial incentives for buyers, including a guaranteed cost for hydrogen that matches diesel fuel prices

  • Install 20 charging stations, strategically

embedded in appropriate community and commercial ecosystems

  • Build 15 electrolysis plants supplying

renewable hydrogen locally, to avoid greenhouse-gas emissions at the source


LET'S SPLIT THE BELL

This €51 million project is a joint venture:

  • 20% from Michelin and Engie
  • 20% from the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF)
  • 30% from Banks and other private financing sources
  • 30% from the Auvergne regional government
WE MUST DECARBONIZE HEAVY-DUTY TRUCKING

The class 8 heavy-duty Tractor-trailer is the Largest freight hauler On the road. These trucks Often run round-the-clock, Are payload-sensitive And rated to carry 80,000 Pounds. A battery bank For such vehicles would Weigh several tonnes, and Ultra-fast charging would Be much more difficult and Expensive than it is for Passenger cars
