Berkeley Lab and ERG Dan Kammen Agree That Electrifying Trucking Proves To Be More Cost-Efficient

In a recent Daily Cal article, ERG professor Dan Kammen was featured discussing a study from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory finding that commercial trucking is capable of undergoing major electrification. The researchers determined that “not only is electrifying regional and long-haul trucks a possibility, but it could offer a cost-effective energy supply for the commercial trucking sector. They also found that electrification could aid efforts to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions,” the article states.

“Electrified vehicles are just simply much cheaper to own and operate,” Kammen states in the article. “And it means that the path to zero carbon is just further clarified.”
