Gathering diverse stakeholders from the Penta region and beyond in order to stimulate the reflection, the event will identify bottlenecks and .. Read more ultimately build the path for future work in the framework of the Pentalateral Forum through a new e-mobility working group, bringing together the ministries of energy and transport. However, the pathway for the development and deployment of e-trucks is unclear, where technology, regulatory, financial and policy aspects, covering both transport and energy sectors, need to support country plans. Particularly, the implications of a rapid uptake of e-trucks for electricity systems need to be better understood. The aim is to identify strategies that minimise any potential risk for the electricity system while maximising the benefits for the road freight and renewable power sectors. The Pentalateral Energy Forum — Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Switzerland — as a front runner in implementing ambitious climate strategies, will discuss the role of electric trucks in decarbonising the transport sector and the nexus between the energy and road freight sectors. IRENA, the Benelux Secretariat – Pentalateral Forum, Transport & Environment and ChargePoint, will organise the virtual event 'Which future for heavy-duty vehicles in the Penta region? Integrating electromobility in the energy transition', with the aim to foster cross-border and cross-sector — transport and energy — cooperation on heavy-duty vehicles (HDV).
