What is the future of autonomous trucking?
Has any alternative fuel pulled ahead of another in the heavy-duty space?
How can truckstops and travel centers partner with fleets to help relieve the regulatory pressure of decarbonization?
Mike Roeth, executive director of NACFE and Ginger Laidlaw, vice president of NATSO's Alternative Fuels Council, take a deep dive these alternative fuels questions and more in the latest episode of NATSO’s The Truck Stops Here podcast.
“What we see in the next decade or so is a lot of these alternative fuels that we’ve been hearing about and thinking about — whether it is natural gas, renewable diesel, renewable natural gas, and burning hydrogen in an engine, which is something that really came about since I was at your conference as a solution — we see these as the messy middle between now and when electrification really takes off. That middle won’t take quarters or a year, like we are used to in trucking, but rather decades,” Roeth explained.
