Methodology of the Zero Emission Truck Taskforce

The Taskforce considered detailed papers on the makeup of the Scottish haulage sector; technology development, trials and supply; the energy infrastructure required; workforce upskilling; total costs of ownership; and new financial models developing to support zero emission vehicles. All papers and minutes are available at Zero Emission Truck Taskforce | Taskforce meetings | Transport Scotland.

After this initial information gathering phase, working groups were set up comprising taskforce members and a wide range of industry specialists to identify the key actions required to embed zero emission HGVs in Scotland. The groups focused on the technical and commercial considerations required to unlock change around vehicles; charging and fuelling infrastructure; and skills.
