ALEXANDRIA, Va.—There are roughly 12 million medium-and heavy-duty vehicles (MHDV) in the United States, representing about 5% of all vehicles on the road and 30% of transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions. There are distinguishable differences between MHDV and light-duty vehicles, and the same carbon abatement strategies may not apply to both sectors.
The Fuels Institute commissioned Guidehouse Insights to establish a baseline framework for evaluating the emissions contributions of the medium- and heavy-duty transportation sectors and the potential viable solutions that could be applied.
The results of the findings were published in the Fuels Institute newest report, “The Easiest and Hardest Commercial Vehicles to Decarbonize,” and the institute hosting is a free webinar to discuss the report.
The webinar will take place tomorrow, April 29 at 1 p.m. EDT and will feature John Eichberger, executive director, Fuels Institute; Mike Homan, associate director-fleet optimization, Guidehouse; and Sam Abuelsamid, associate director, Guidehouse.
