Coke Canada Bottling to begin major pilot project in Montreal

"...Coke Canada Bottling used incentives from the province's eco-trucking program, part of Quebec's Green Plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The province says it's giving priority to electrification when it's feasible, taking into account the realities of transportation, buildings and industries..."


Decarbonizing Freight: Opportunities and Obstacles for Clean Fuels

"...While electrifying long-haul freight is more challenging, battery electric vehicles may still be the best option for trucking. Multi-megawatt charging stations at truck stops with battery designs that enable their use may be less of a challenge than hydrogen fueling and will very likely remain cheaper. Innovation to increase the energy density of batteries and/or autonomous trucks could lead to battery electric trucks dominating this use case..."


B.C., UK electric vehicle makers to merge

"...ElectraMeccanica (Nasdaq:SOLO), a B. C. headquartered company that developed a single-person, three-wheeled, battery electric car, which was recalled and discontinued earlier this year, is merging with a private British company that makes electric trucks..."


Historic Lake Edge Cottages resort in Lakefield goes solar with federal funding

"...“Businesses with high input costs towards energy are great candidates for clean energy systems which will offset their input costs or stabilize them,” he said. “They (Lake Edges) are doing a tremendous job at demonstrating leadership not only to other small businesses but to all their clients and their stakeholders. ”Lake Edge is a member of Peterborough GreenUP's “Green Economy Peterborough,” a program which helps members to measure and reduce its environmental impact..."

"...”It’s a great vehicle. There’s zero emissions. It’s super good for the environment..."


B.C. spends $4M to swap diesel for hydrogen in Metro Vancouver port trucking

"...“The biggest advantage with hydrogen is energy density. You can store more energy on board than you can with a battery electric truck so you’re generally able to meet the normal working conditions and duty cycle of that diesel equipment,” he said. “There’s a lot of interest and a lot of movement for fuel-cell versions, because there’s no compromise to the performance, the filling times are quick, and you don’t have to reduce payloads..."


An Uncertain Energy Transition a Century Ago

"...But, Mom and Kirsch write, there was still the question of whether to buy a gas or electric vehicle. Electric trucks were a better one-to-one replacement for horses—reliable and well suited to stop-and-go trips. But, especially as gas-powered passenger cars gained popularity, gas trucks were the superior choice for long trips..."


Edison Motors to appear at global conference

"...Fully Charged will make its first appearance in Vancouver from September 8 to 10, with the three day electric vehicle and home show featuring vendors, speakers, electric vehicle test rides, electric concept zones, and conversation around the transition to clean energy. The event will be held at the Vancouver Convention Centre.   ..."


Gas-powered truck purchase generates high number of responses to Salmon Arm council

"...The majority of council voted in favour of the staff recommendation. Coun. Sylvia Lindgren voted against, citing environmental concerns about having the internal combustion engines for another 20 years..."


Ikea using fully electric trucks for home delivery

"...When you hear of electric vehicles, you probably think of passenger cars, but did you know delivery trucks can run on batteries too?..."
