Advantages of hydrogen-electric trucks were touted at Senate hearing while ATA warned against aggressive timelines.

Much of the discussion, which kicked off the Environmental and Public Works Committee’s first hearing of the new Congress on Wednesday, centered on not whether hydrogen fuel cells and other clean fuels should be part of reducing green-house gas (GHG) emissions but how aggressive a national standard timeline should be.

American Trucking Associations President and CEO Chris Spear testified that his organization sued over the low-carbon fuel standards that California and Oregon put in place several years ago before they took effect. California requires significant carbon reductions by 2030 and will allow only zero-emission drayage trucks at its ports by 2035.
