Medium- and Heavy-Duty vehicle (MHDV) electrification has the potential to put downward pressure on electric utility rates, provide valuable grid services, save money for fleet owners, and reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. However, grid infrastructure investments and capacity are major factors in the pace of MHDV electrification and the success of policies like the Advanced Clean Trucks rule.  

In this informational webinar, panelists explored the critical findings from our study “On the Road to Electrification: A Framework for Estimating Distribution System Impacts of the Advanced Clean Trucks Rule and Medium- and Heavy-Duty Vehicle Electrification.” The webinar presented a framework for assessing and managing the impact of MHDV electrification on the electric grid, featuring case studies from Pennsylvania and Illinois. Our panelists shared insights on necessary grid upgrades, cost management, and overcoming regulatory challenges.
