2021 Electric Truck & Bus Update, Part 1: Trucks
- Aug 26, 2021 1:11 pm GMT
The subjects of this post are starting to emerge, and it should be interesting to see these markets develop. A major consideration, especially for electric utility professionals, is that the vehicle types covered in this post take a huge amount of energy to recharge them. Also many of these vehicles will perform recharging en masse. This will be at logistic/distribution centers for trucks. These facilities are currently not prepared for the massive load increase as their vehicles transition to electric operation. Since logistic centers tend cluster around major highways and urban perimeters, the electric transmission and distribution networks in these areas will also need upgrading.
This post is on the progress to date of the medium-to-heavy truck and markets. We will also look at one area that has become a major logistic / distribution / fulfillment hub – San Joaquin County California.
