Through the HVIA-LITE project, HVIA is guiding a coordinated and collaborative industry approach to lead the heavy vehicle industry’s transition to a heavy vehicle fleet progressively dominated by battery electric (BEV) and fuel cell electric (FCEV) zero emission trucks.
HVIA’s Steve Power said the HVIA-LITE project driving committee is working to identify and resolve a wide array of issues.
“We are grateful for the brilliant engagement and impressive knowledge and expertise that is being shared by our HVIA member representative group through the committee,” Mr Power said.
“The agenda includes standards, legislative and access requirements, workplace and operational safety, repairs and maintenance, technical and emergency support, skills and training, energy supply and more.
“We have also been drafting low and zero emissions policy statements that will be fed into HVIA’s 2022 Federal election campaign; all member representatives will have the opportunity to comment on that.
“There is also a big information piece to ensure our members’ customers have the information they need to understand the implications and opportunities of taking their first steps down this road.
“Next year’s Brisbane Truck Show will certainly provide an unrivalled showcase of everything that is available and what’s around the corner.
“There are opportunities for all HVIA members to get involved in the project, including through working groups addressing specific parts of the project.”
HVIA has now launched a webpage to collate the information and actions of the project, and to house a rapidly growing library of resources and news archives.
