Electrified City Distribution

Distribution of goods and waste management is a large contributor to heavy duty traffic within a city. Electrification of these fleets would reduce all types of emissions ranging from sound to NOx and CO2 from the vehicles. This project study the costs and benefits of different kinds of power-train configurations that could be suitable for city use. Furthermore, the required electrical and informational infrastructure is investigated and the most competitive system is presented.

Project participants are Volvo Group, DB Schenker, Göteborg Energi, Viktoria Swedish ICT, and the School of Business, Economics and Law at Göteborg University.
