Real-world emphasis on electric
With a backdrop of the United Nations'
COP26 climate summit in Glasgow,
Scotland, which attracted world leaders
and global attention, and the passing
and signing into law - finally, after much
debate - of the $1.2 trillion bipartisan
infrastructure bill, the news that the U.S.
Department of Energy (DOE) is ramping
up the third iteration of its SuperTruck
program may have been missed.
In concert with goals outlined at
COP26 and itemized in the infrastructure
bill - namely, the $7.5 billion earmarked
for creating a nationwide network of EV
charging stations - the SuperTruck 3
program is emphasizing electrified trucks
and freight system concepts to achieve
higher efficiency and zero emissions.
The DOE recently awarded $199 million
to fund 25 projects focused on developing
zero-emissions vehicles and
improving the nation's EV charging infrastructure.
SuperTruck 3 gets the lion's
share of those development dollars,
funding five vehicle manufacturers with
a combined $127 million over the next
five years. Recipients will match federal
funding, dollar-for-dollar.
For the first time medium-duty trucks
- from Ford and General Motors - are
part of the program, in addition to Class
8 entries from returning participants
PACCAR, Volvo Group North America
and Daimler Trucks North America.
Here's a quick look at the OEMs and
their projects, in order of highest award
amount to lowest:
* PACCAR, parent company of
Kenworth and Peterbilt (award amount:
$32.97 million), will develop eighteen
Class-8 battery-electric and fuel-cell
vehicles with advanced batteries. A
megawatt (MW) charging station also
will be developed and demonstrated.
* General Motors (award amount:
$26.06 million) will develop and demonstrate
four hydrogen fuel-cell and four
battery-electric Class 4-6 trucks. The
project also will focus on development
of clean hydrogen via electrolysis and
clean power for fast charging.
2 December 2021
* Daimler Trucks North America (award
amount: $25.79 million) will develop
and demonstrate two Class-8 fuel-cell
trucks with 600-mile range, 25,000hour
durability and equivalent payload
capacity and range to diesel.
* Ford (award amount: $24.95 million)
will develop and demonstrate five hydrogen
fuel-cell-electric Class-6 Super Duty
trucks targeting cost, payload, towing
and refueling times that are equivalent
to conventional gasoline trucks.
* Volvo Group North America (award
amount: $18.07 million) will develop a
400-mile-range Class-8 battery-electric
tractor-trailer with advanced aerodynamics,
electric braking, EV optimized
tires, automation and route planning. It
also will develop a MW charging station.
Another real-world study of trucking
fuel efficiency, dubbed Run on Less, also
focused its latest iteration on electrification.
Run by the North American Council
for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) and the
Rocky Mountain Institute, the Run on
Less - Electric study monitored 13 electric
trucks driving their regular daily
routes and hauling their usual freight for
three weeks across North America.
The main finding of this effort: Certain
trucking segments are ready to go electric
- now. " It's clear from the data collected
during the Run that it is time for
fleets to go electric in certain market
segments, including the van/step van,
medium-duty box truck, terminal tractor
and short heavy tractor regional delivery
segments, " said Mike Roeth, NACFE's
executive director.
The four " early-adopter " market segments
featured in the Run, which encompass
an estimated 5.2 million vehicles,
can be a " gateway " to the larger
opportunity in longer regional-haul and
long-haul trucking, NACFE said.
By leveraging the learnings and technologies
stemming from these real-world
experiences, the likelihood of transitioning
to full electric-truck fleets outside of
such studies becomes, well, more real.
