You are invited to attend the virtual release of a report on Decarbonizing long-haul trucking in Eastern Canada. The study provides a techno-economic assessment of net zero technologies on the highway corridor between Québec City and Windsor. This 1,300 km corridor is Canada’s busiest for long-haul trucking. The Class 8 truck technologies considered included (1) battery electric, (2) catenary electric (with dynamic charging), (3) hydrogen fuel cells and (4) compressed renewable natural gas (C-RNG).
The two-year research project was financed by the Government of Québec and was carried out by the Chair in Energy Sector Management at HEC Montréal in collaboration with CPCS. As part of the project, close to 60 experts from industry, government and university were consulted in April 2023 to validate the modelling approach and key techno-economic parameters considered in the study. The study comprises of two reports: Part 1 summarizes key findings from the workshop, while Part 2 presents the results of the techno-economic assessment of the net zero trucking technologies at scale.
