GES study on drive systems for heavy trucks

In the European Union, heavy-duty traffic is responsible for about one third of road transport emissions and thus for six percent of CO2 emissions. A crucial question is how climate-neutral trucks can be powered in the future. An excerpt from the study:

In the near future, battery electrics and the provision of electricity via overhead lines are unlikely to provide a viable solution for climate neutrality in the heavy-duty truck sector. The focus will rather be on gas, the fuel cell or the internal combustion engine using hydrogen and synthetic fuels in one form or another. This puts you in a position to cover long distances with your own fuel, to be able to potentially drive across Europe at will and be able to act everywhere.”
