In this episode of Redefining Energy, Gerard and Laurent debate about the transition from Diesel to Electric in Buses and Trucks.

First, there is an excellent interview of Julie Furber, Head of Electrification at Cummins, a Fortune 500 Diesel Engine manufacturer. Then Laurent and Gerard review the factors triggering the Transition: Regulation, Economics, Technology, Competition, China. 

Who will prevail in this Electrification of Buses and Trucks? Incumbents? US Start-Ups like Proterra? Chinese giants like BYD? Redefining Energy delivers a verdict.

Honestly, I'm just happy the discussion is 'who is going to win in electric freight' and not 'is it possible?' We've come a long way with that regard, and clearly there's a lot of reason for optimism.

Keep up the great conversations, I'm loving them!
