Check It Out
Discussions on the potential to create a carbon free corridor from Montreal to Chicago have been underway. While some groups have identified possible opportunities and challenges, this undertaking requires a truly multi-perspective analysis to properly identify feasibility, economic opportunity and risk, environmental benefits, and business cases for implementation. To address this, a Carbon Free Corridor Working Group has been formed and a series of workshops are being conducted to educate relevant stakeholders and identify possible collaborations and funding mechanisms to properly evaluate this initiative.
OUR NEXT EVENT
The stories are out there. Big companies are making big orders for fully electrified Big Rigs.
What will that mean for Fleet Owners, for Fueling Stations, for the Power Grid? For your Business?
The University of Windsor and 360 Energy are leading a study that has been examining some of these impacts.
This January 20th Event will connect the dots as we know them - with a particular emphasis on the Ontario 401 Corridor.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
When will it make sense to go electric with your fleet? Will it ever? How do the costs break down? Who has Long Haul Electric Vehicles (LHEV) already? What data is out there to help you understand your options going forward?
Change is here and more is coming. How will you service LHEVs as they arrive? Would your property layout have to change? What about power infrastructure - will you have enough? Will it be profitable? When will this all happen?
What will these new loads look like? Where and when are they taking place? Meet other key stakeholders that will ultimately shape how quickly the electrification of long haul transport will take place.
Get updated on the state of transition. Better understand the interests of Fleet and Station Owners - and the concerns of Utilities. See early models of load projections and how it could shape the Long Haul Transport Sector.
Educate and connect stakeholders – overview of technologies, current activity in the space, discuss where things could be going.
Identify the overarching opportunities and challenges surrounding the electrification of Long Haul Vehicles "Transport Trucks/Big Rigs"
Highlight potential advantages and disadvantages of LHEVs for Fleet and Station Owners.
Identify markets and evaluate potential business models.
Evaluate the potential for this to qualify as a carbon offset project.
Identify funding mechanisms for future research / pilot projects.
