About NextETRUCK:

NextETRUCK provides a sustainable solution to bring zero-emission electric medium freight haulage, playing a pioneering role in the decarbonisation of vehicle fleets and accelerating sustainable market replenishment.

Research organisations, business strategists, technology companies, vehicle and component manufacturers, and associations work together to advance zero-emission vehicles and ecosystems that are holistic, innovative, affordable, competitive and synergetic.

To achieve its objectives, NextETRUCK will develop three pilot sites in Istanbul (Turkey), Barcelona (Spain) and the United Kingdom

About the event:

NextETRUCK draws some interim conclusions and takes stock of the first project results, provides an overview of the pilots in the UK, Barcelona and Istanbul while inviting other EU-funded projects of the AEVETO zero-emission HDV cluster to discuss the broader picture of decarbonising (urban) freight.

Besides intriguing discussions between NextETRUCK partners and industry experts, our lunch break will provide a perfect ambience to meet with engaged stakeholders and our panel discussion will enhance your insight into the test sites, involved OEMs and pilot leaders that test the physical and digital innovation of our battery-powered HDVs.
