Road Freight Zero: Pathways to faster adoption of zero-emission trucks

Currently, energy infrastructure availability and financing gaps are key barriers to faster zero-emission truck adoption. For the industry to achieve the 1.5°C target, two-thirds of total trucks sold need to be zero-emission. But at its current pace, the industry would need another 120’000 zero-emission trucks on the road annually by 2030 to reach this target.

Road Freight Zero: Pathways to faster adoption of zero-emission trucks identifies three groups of solutions can act as accelerators for faster adoption. These include new policy frameworks, innovative financing and service models and coordinated roll-out of trucks and infrastructure.
