Perspectives on Charging Medium- and Heavy-Duty Electric Vehicles

Research output: NRELPresentation


Electric vehicles (EVs) adoption is gaining momentum globally thanks to major technological advancements as well as policy actions and support from multiple stakeholders. EVs are well positioned to replace internal combustion engine vehicles for passenger cars, SUVs, vans, trucks, and buses, but a plethora of solutions is needed to provide effective, convenient, and affordable charging to different vehicles and for various applications. This talk focuses on charging of medium and heavy-duty vehicles, the second largest source of US transportation GHG emissions, providing an overview of charging needs for different applications. Moreover, we offer a deep dive on depot charging solutions for short-haul heavy-duty trucks based on a recent Nature Energy paper.
