NextETRUCK draws some interim conclusions and takes stock of the first project results, provides an overview of the pilots in the UK, Barcelona and Istanbul, while highlighting the innovative aspects of the project, including the real-world tests of state-of-the-art thermal management solutions, newly developed e-powertrains, fast-charging solutions and much more.
Around half a dozen EU-funded projects test zero-emission trucks in different urban, peri-urban, regional and even international environments. Whether these test vehicles are propelled by electricity, hydrogen or a mix, it is fascinating to learn about the technological advancements of the last couple of years.
POLIS will host a panel discussion about urban freight beyond the aspects of EU-funded projects, by including the perspectives of cities across Europe and their plan to reduce the negative impacts of trucks, while guaranteeing city access for the goods transport.
René Corbijn, NextETRUCK project coordinator, likes to welcome you in Brussels and summarised the event: ‘the aim of this conference is engage with a wider group of zero-emission freight experts, industry stakeholders and decision makers to discuss the challenges of zero-emission freight and the opportunities that can be derived from NextETRUCK pilot testing in our three regions across Europe’.
Besides intriguing discussions between NextETRUCK partners and industry experts, our lunch break will provide a perfect ambience to meet with engaged stakeholders and our panel discussion will enhance your insight into the test sites, involved OEMs and pilot leaders that test the physical and digital innovation of our battery-powered HDVs.
