Integrated Modelling Program and TCO Calculator for Battery-Electric Medium- and Heavy-Duty Truck Deployment in Regional Freight Use-Cases

Short-haul and regional trucking operations present an ideal opportunity for realizing the emissions-reducing and cost-saving potential of battery electric medium- and heavy- duty trucks. This study identifies heavily-trafficked freight truck routes of optimal distances in Georgia and quantifies electrification benefits for fleets operating on these corridors by integrating outputs from MOtor Vehicle Emission Simulator (MOVES) Matrix, the Argonne National Laboratory’s GREET Model, the Georgia Tech Fuel and Emissions Calculator (FEC), and other models into a web-based tool for fleet operators to assess electrification benefits using customized inputs.
