Green Hydrogen in Trucking: Fueling the Future of Logistics?
Time: 12:45 PM - 1:30 PM
- Comparing Hydrogen with batteries in long-haul trucking. Trucking is responsible for 7% of transportation emissions, but presents challenges for batteries due to weight and charging time. Hydrogen fuel cell trucks, with a refueling time of just ten minutes, are poised to outperform batteries for trips over 180 miles and payloads above 24,000 pounds.
- Analyzing the economic viability of hydrogen in trucking with the US Department of Energy predicting that by 2030, the total cost of ownership for long-haul hydrogen fuel cell vehicles will become competitive, especially with new production tax credits for clean hydrogen.
- Delving into the complexities of establishing fueling stations for hydrogen-powered trucks, weighing the pros and cons of on-site hydrogen production versus importing it.
