The 8th International Workshop on Sustainable Road Freight will be held online on 9th-11th November 2021. This year, the virtual workshop will be hosted by Professor Lóránt Tavasszy from the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft).
In recent years we have seen increasing investments in competing propulsion technologies that could support the route to zero carbon for road freight transport including, among others, hydrogen, battery and/or catenary based electric systems. As these technologies compete for largely the same transport market, the question arises whether preparing for them all at the same time is necessary or useful. This year’s workshop will make an effort to consolidate the current knowledge and arrive at pathways for alternative technologies, focusing on the necessary circumstances that technologies would require to perform as needed to achieve climate change goals. Contributions about progress in other areas in relation to sustainable road freight are welcome, to help define the context that these technologies will operate in.
