Comparing options to electrify heavy-duty vehicles. Findings of German pilot projects.

Daniel Speth & Simon Árpád Funke
While the electrification of passenger vehicles is already in full swing, for the decarbonization of heavy-duty trucks still various challenges exist. Especially the high specific energy consumption in combination with high daily driving ranges makes battery electric operation much more difficult than for passenger cars. Accordingly, a broad set of different drivetrains is discussed, inter alia hydrogen powered trucks, catenary hybrid trucks and synthetic fuels. One main advantage of the direct use of electricity in...
