Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, Drive to Zero is transforming in-person workshops and other events into a series of digital dialogues to discuss how to accelerate the deployment of zero-emission commercial vehicles (ZECVs). Dialogues include:
- June 3, 2020: How the Zero-Emission Technology Inventory (ZETI) can connect customers, regulators and the public with current and future model ZECVs at the click of a button. Register here.
- June/2020 (date to be confirmed): Exploring the impacts of COVID-19 on ZECV deployment and how to leverage stimulus/recovery packages. Registration details coming soon.
- July/2020 (date to be confirmed): Emerging best standards for scaling charging infrastructure – lessons from first adopters worldwide. Registration details coming soon.
All Drive to Zero Virtual Dialogues will target tangible opportunities to leverage technology momentum and overcome key barriers to faster ZECV adoption, including:
|Model availability||Increasing ZECV availability across vehicle segments.|
|Enabling policies||Supporting policymakers to implement carrots and sticks to spur ZECV adoption.|
|Fleet adoption||Helping fleets understand model availability, suitability and business case.|
|Infrastructure||Ensuring interoperable and scaled energy infrastructure is available across vehicle segments.|
|Cost parity||Ensuring ZECVs have an attractive total cost of ownership (TCO) and cost parity.|
|Demand||Influencing investors and freight users to support ZECVs over fossil fuels.|
|Regional perspectives||Spurring ZECV demand and supply in key regions (U.S., Canada, Europe, India, South America, etc)|
