E-trucks will be cost effective sooner then normal cars

Auke Hoekstra is senior advisor at Eindhoven University of Technology and TNO E-Trucks in Rotterdam.

‘Something that’s very interesting at the moment is the development of electric heavy trucks. The most interesting part is that e-trucks will be cost effective sooner than normal cars. So replacing normal trucks by e-trucks is a real option. By 2025, I expect an in crease in e-trucks, heavy chargers along the high ways and truck par-king lots. Heavy chargers do not exist yet, but they will. How does that impact the grid and energy market?’
