Abstract This document is a report on zero emission heavy duty vehicles. The report explores the potential feasibility of zero emission powertrain options, including fuel cell and battery electric powertrains, and provides associated cost projections. The report also includes a heavy goods vehicle physical packaging assessment and an analysis of the current state of development, and remaining barriers / technology gaps for zero emission powertrains in HDVs.

The report concludes that
  • Innovation opportunities exist in fuel cell system designs and production methods
  • Innovations are also being pursued in hydrogen storage to enable use in large, long-range vehicles
  • Opportunities to reduce fuel consumption by up to 35% through improved vehicle design (unrelated to engine) have been explored for trucks in the US
  • Further design and demonstration work should be carried out on zero emission trucks, particularly on larger, long-range configurations
