About this Event

Dramatic changes are required in the transport sector to meet the carbon neutrality targets foreseen by the Green Deal: a 90% reduction in GHG transport emissions is needed by 2050 to achieve climate neutrality.

This target can only be achieved with a full decarbonisation of the truck sector. The Directive on CO2 emission for Heavy-Duty Vehicles sets ambitious targets for the most pollutant trucks. This offers an opportunity to invest heavily in innovative technologies such as hydrogen, which will be leveraged by the EU Green Deal set of actions.

Hydrogen fuel cell trucks offer a key solution to decarbonise the trucks segment without compromising on operational flexibility. The hydrogen fuel cell truck event will bring together leading experts from the truck industry, EU decision-makers, end-users and infrastructure providers to discuss how to accelerate the mass-market deployment of hydrogen fuel cell trucks and their infrastructure.
