This project aims to assess and compare the life cycle greenhouse gas emissions of heavy-duty freight and equipment vehicles fueled with electricity, hydrogen, and renewable diesel. The vehicle and fuel supply chain emissions are assessed separately and combined together for a holistic evaluation. Alternative fueled trucks can reduce life cycle emissions compared to conventional diesel trucks. Suggestions are provided for wide-scale implementation of alternative fueled heavy-duty trucks in the future.
