Electric truck fleets will need a lot of power, but utilities aren't planning for it 4.8.2020 Resource Efficiency | GreenBiz.com
Electric truck fleets will need a lot of power, but utilities aren't planning for it Stephen Nadel Tue, 08/04/2020 - 01:11 As more electric buses and trucks enter the market, future fleets will require a lot of electricity for charging. While some utilities in California and elsewhere are planning for an increase in power demand, many have yet to do so and need to get started. This issue is critical, because freight trucks emit more than one-quarter of all vehicle emissions. Recent product developments offer growing opportunities to electrify trucks and buses and slash their emissions (see our recent white paper ). And just last week, a group of 15 states plus D.C. announced plans to fully electrify truck sales by 2050. Utilities will need to be ready to power electric fleets. Electric truck fleets need substantial power Power for trucks and buses is generally more of an issue than for cars because trucks typically have larger batteries and because trucks and buses are often parts of fleets with many ...

California's new truck rule: It's big, it's bold, it's controversial 1.7.2020 Business Operations | GreenBiz.com
California's new truck rule: It's big, it's bold, it's controversial Katie Fehrenbacher Wed, 07/01/2020 - 00:30  California's epic clean truck rule has arrived. It's big. It's bold. It's controversial.  After months of discussion, last week the California Air Resources Board (CARB) unanimously approved the Advanced Clean Truck rule, which says that more than half of the trucks sold in California have to be zero-emission by 2035. By 2045, all new commercial trucks sold in California must be zero-emission.  The truck rule follows another California law ( passed in 2018 ) that says all new public transit buses sold must be zero-emission starting in 2029. The combination of these policies makes California one of the most aggressive regions in the world pushing electric trucks and buses.  Environmentalists hailed the decision , calling it a win that will help clean up the air for disadvantaged communities that live in areas with a large amount of trucks. For example, in the Inland Empire in Southern ...

The time for electric trucks and buses is now 10.6.2020 Energy & Climate | Greenbiz.com
The time for electric trucks and buses is now Katie Fehrenbacher Wed, 06/10/2020 - 01:30 Despite the pandemic, sales of electric trucks and buses are expected to surge in the United States and Canada over the next couple of years. And perhaps, surprising to many, they'll soar even within this year (the year that can best be described as WTF).  That's according to new data released recently by the clean-transportation-focused nonprofit CALSTART. The organization expects there to be 169 zero-emission commercial vehicles available for purchase, or soon to be available, in North America by the end of 2020; that's a 78 percent increase from the number of zero-emission commercial vehicles available at the end of 2019. What's more, between 2019 and 2023, the amount of zero-emission commercial vehicle models is expected to double, to 195.  Why does this matter? Because diesel-powered trucks and buses are responsible for a disproportionate amount of transportation-related carbon emissions and are also a source of ...

The low price of freed parking 11.2.2020 Energy & Climate | Greenbiz.com
The 270 million vehicles in the United States are parked over 90 percent of the time. There are far more parking spaces than vehicles. How many spaces? The data is imprecise. There could be 500 million parking lot spaces and 1 billion spaces on streets. Add parking in home garages, carports and driveways, and another estimate is 2 billion parking spaces.
