NACFE has been blessed to do a lot of listening as well as some presenting at our first two utility conferences, DistribuTECH and EPRI Electrification 2022. One small piece of evidence that electrification is starting up is that each of the utility conferences had a very large truck fleet in attendance.
The study of medium and heavy-duty commercial truck electrification started in 2017 as NACFE explored different segments of the industry. In the following two and a half years, NACFE published six guidance reports to assist in understanding the changes at hand. These reports cover market segments, charging system infrastructure and the areas in North America where incentives, terrains and environmental quality challenges will drive initial uses.
