Electric trucks are making their way to our busy roads but making sure they start out where they are needed most and that there is a framework in place is important to know. This is what the North American Council on Freight Efficiency and the Rocky Mountain Institute have put together in their new report
“High-Potential Regions for Electric Truck Deployment” shows a three-part framework for electric truck deployment. You can’t just throw electric trucks into the mix and hope it works, there’s a lot to think about to get them up and running smoothly. The questions asked and analyzed included; Where does the electric technology work? Where is this electric technology needed? and Where is there electric support?
