Abstract(E)In order to help mitigate the effects of climate change, there is need for development and change in the vehicle powertrain technologies of the road transport freight industry. This need is reflected in the regulated emissions levels for such new vehicles within Europe up until 2030 and the recent, regulatory proposals, e.g. ‘Fit for 55’, for net zero emissions in many aspects of societal activity in Europe soon thereafter, at the latest by 2050. Achieving such targets is an immense challenge, which will require changes in the energy carriers (vectors), powertrains, vehicles, operational and infrastructure aspects of road freight transport. Furthermore, the potential routes to such change and their rate indicate that the available powertrain portfolio in 2035 will be pivotal to success or not in meeting this challenge. Following from earlier considerations, in this paper the current understanding of these routes will be reviewed, the necessary, immediate next steps highlighted. It is seen that there is no single solution, that most likely all options will be needed, and that there will be significant bottlenecks along the way, such that it is still not clear if the targets can be achieved, but that research, invention, demonstration and innovation are needed right now.

About search


How to use the search box

You can enter up to 5 search conditions. The number of search boxes can be increased or decreased with the "+" and "-" buttons on the right.
If you enter multiple words separated by spaces in one search box, the data that "contains all" of the entered words will be searched (AND search).
Example) X (space) Y → "X and Y (including)"

How to use "AND" and "OR" pull-down

If "AND" is specified, the "contains both" data of the phrase entered in the previous and next search boxes will be searched. If you specify "OR", the data that "contains" any of the words entered in the search boxes before and after is searched.
Example) X AND Y → "X and Y (including)"  X OR Z → "X or Z (including)"
If AND and OR searches are mixed, OR search has priority.
Example) X AND Y OR Z → X AND (Y OR Z)
If AND search and multiple OR search are mixed, OR search has priority.
Example) W AND X OR Y OR Z → W AND (X OR Y OR Z)

How to use the search filters

Use the "search filters" when you want to narrow down the search results, such as when there are too many search results. If you check each item, the search results will be narrowed down to only the data that includes that item.
The number in "()" after each item is the number of data that includes that item.
