Besides hydrogen and batteries, low emission fuels such as LNG and bioLNG will also play their role in decarbonising the sector, the study finds.
Shell and Deloitte published last week the joint study named the “Decarbonising Road Freight: Getting into Gear”. To remind, the duo issued a similar study in July last year but for the shipping industry, confirming LNG as one of the main transition fuels.
The new study provides insight on how to decarbonise the road freight sector. According to the study, more than 70% of the 158 interviewees consider decarbonisation as the leading or top 3 priority for their organisation.
The report shows that more than 70% of study participants view hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles and battery electric vehicles as the most viable long term zero-emission heavy duty truck technology, and many believe these trucks will become commercially viable in the next 5 to 10 years.
