PACCAR Partners with U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) on SuperTruck 3 Program
PACCAR is launching its SuperTruck 3 program to continue the development of its Class 8 Kenworth and Peterbilt battery electric and fuel cell vehicles, along with its vehicle charging stations. SuperTruck 3 is a DOE initiative to develop state of the art zero emissions medium- and heavy-duty trucks. PACCAR received a $33 million matching grant for the highly selective program. “The SuperTruck 3 award underscores PACCAR’s industry leadership in zero emissions commercial vehicles,” said John Rich, PACCAR chief technology officer.

Kenworth rolls out battery-electric, fuel-cell-electric trucks for demonstrations
Adams said a hydrogen fueling network will need to be established, but he believes private corporations will be eager to develop one, due to the fast fueling times associated with hydrogen and increased opportunity to profit based on greater throughput than electric charging.
Kenworth’s current hydrogen trucks produce 560 hp, house a 12-kW battery pack to aid in propulsion and take pressure off the fuel cells, and hold up to 60 kg of hydrogen. Trucknews.com will have a first-hand report on the driving experiences of both battery-electric and hydrogen-fuel-cell-electric trucks in the days ahead.
Clean energy Coast Futura rail demo met with excitement, hope for the future
Spanning two weekends — one each in Watsonville and Santa Cruz — the clean-energy, all-electric light rail vehicle gave the community a tangible example of what car-free travel could be like in the region.
More than 2,000 people took rides on the Coast Futura, including families, people with limited mobility and local elected officials. The streetcar demonstration was produced with support from a collaboration that included about 120 local volunteers, Roaring Camp Railroads and TIG/m, which manufactures the streetcar.
AC Transit Releases Second Iteration of Zero Emission Transit Bus Technology Analysis
AC Transit announces the release of the second version of our Zero Emission Transit Bus Technology Analysis (ZETBTA) study. Our current report tracks greenhouse gas emissions, cost per mile, fleet availability and other intelligent data spanning January through June 2021.
The ZETBTA study’s data is reliable because it is captured from a control fleet using the same 25 buses, then reinforced through academic evaluation by scientists at Stanford University’s Precourt Institute for Energy.
The ZETBTA is a robust side-by-side evaluation of the predominant bus technologies in use at transit agencies worldwide: fuel cell electric bus (FCEB), battery electric bus (BEB), diesel hybrid, and conventional diesel bus propulsion systems.

Hydrogen plans gather steam at utilities in final months of 2021
More broadly, Northwest Natural Senior Vice President of Operations Kim Heiting said the company is working with peers in the U.S. and Canada to develop a North American plan similar to the European Hydrogen Backbone. Europe's plan envisions developing a 23,000-km hydrogen grid across Western Europe by 2040, with roughly a quarter comprising new hydrogen pipelines and the majority converted from existing gas infrastructure.

Under the project, five units of 11-ton hydrogen trucks will be test run for delivery services – two by CJ Logistics and Hyundai Glovis and one by Coupang. Each delivery company will collect data necessary to expand the hydrogen logistics system in Korea by using the truck for delivery of 1,000-1,500 times.
DOE Establishes New Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations Under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law
President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides more than $20 billion to establish the Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations and support clean energy technology demonstration projects in areas including clean hydrogen, carbon capture, grid-scale energy storage, small modular reactors, and more.
CUMMINS AND SINOPEC OFFICIALLY LAUNCH JOINT VENTURE TO PRODUCE GREEN HYDROGEN TECHNOLOGIES IN CHINA
Cummins Enze, located in Foshan, Guangdong Province in China, will initially invest $47 million (RMB 300 million) to locate a manufacturing plant to produce proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzers. The plant will initially have a manufacturing capacity of 500 megawatts of electrolyzers per year upon completion in 2023, which will be gradually increased over the next five years to reach one gigawatt of manufacturing capacity per year.
