Analysis to provide costs, efficiencies and roll-out trajectories for zero-emission HGVs, buses and coaches


The Climate Change Committee (CCC) commissioned Element Energy to assess trajectories for the uptake of zero-carbon options for heavy-goods vehicles (HGVs), buses and coaches. The study considered decarbonisation pathways based on three technology options: battery-electric vehicles with ultra-rapid charge points, hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles with hydrogen refuelling stations and pantograph-electric vehicles with overhead electric wiring. It builds upon a previous study of the infrastructure requirements associated with these technologies, which the CCC commissioned from Ricardo Energy and Environment to support the 2019 Net Zero report.
