The market for HyTruck concept
(Lysaker, Norway, August 8th 2022) TECO 2030 (OSE: TECO) elaborates on the HyTruck concept and market size, there are currently roughly 6.2 million trucks in circulation throughout the European Union, each with an average lifetime of 13 years. The HyTruck fuel cell system can easily be retrofitted to existing trucks, and enable zero emission hydrogen operations.
In 2021, 96.5% of all new trucks sold were powered by diesel and 0.1% by petrol. Only 3.4% were powered by alternative energy sources. According to the European Commission lorries, buses and coaches are responsible for about a quarter of CO2 emissions from road transport in the EU, and accounts for 6% of all EU emissions. Despite some improvements in fuel consumption efficiency in recent years, these emissions are still rising, mainly due to increasing freight volumes.
The first-ever EU-wide CO2 emission standards for heavy-duty vehicles, adopted in 2019, set targets for reducing the average emissions from new lorries for 2025 and 2030. The targets represent a 15% emission reduction by 2025 and a 30% emission reduction by 2030.
The HyTruck fuel cell system developed by AVL in combination with heavy duty fuel cell stacks delivered by TECO2030, is the perfect combination for companies trying to actively reach the emission targets set forth by the European Commision.
Hydrogen in combination with fuel cells are the future of zero emission engines and fuel. TECO2030 is developing the world-leading heavy-duty fuel cell application in cooperation with AVL. The fuel cells will be produced at TECO2030 Innovation Center in Narvik, Norway with an annual production capacity of 400MW in 2025 and 1.6GW in 2030.
Why are trucks so important to European trade?
- Road freight transport is the backbone of trade and commerce on the European continent.
- Trucks carry 73.1% of all freight transported over land in the European Union.
- Trucks function as part of a logistics chain whose components also include inland waterways, shipping, air and rail transport.
- The other transport modes also depend on trucks to transfer freight to and from depots, rail terminals, airfields, and ports.
- Not only do trucks remain the most flexible, responsive, and economic mode of transport for the vast majority of goods and freight, they are also essential to the functioning of the larger, integrated European logistics and transport system.
- Most of our daily necessities, such as fresh food from the supermarket or corner shop, electronics and appliances, clothing, and so on, depend on trucks at some point in the distribution chain.
- Many essential public services are delivered by trucks, such as garbage collection, fire and construction services.
