Innovating ways to decrease greenhouse gas emissions. Trucks are a large contributor in greenhouse gas emissions since they burn diesel fuel. One German city has decided to make the switch to electric and make all its trucks entirely electric. The video below will provide further details regarding the vehicles.
Electric cars as well as trucks are an excellent option to lower greenhouse gas emissions. As electricity can be produced from clean energy and solar energy, any solar-powered company can produce it. The problem with trucks and automobiles is the battery’s life. The battery life of vehicles or cars is limited by the capacity of its battery. This is particularly true when it comes to trucks that need an enormous amount of power in order to have to travel lengthy distances. But trains are powered by electric power all day long. Trains typically have a pantograph which grabs electricity through a wire running through the air. A German city is looking into this same method for trucks. A pantograph is installed at the top to draw energy out of the grid. The battery is rechargeable or removed entirely by this process. Savings on costs can be made by using electric power instead of gasoline. Maintaining as well as installing the pantograph will be completed in just two or three years. In the future, we could see electric vehicles.
