Daimler Trucks’s E-Mobility Group Begins Electric-Truck Charging Initiative

Daimler Trucks & Buses says it has started the eTruck Charging Initiative through its E-Mobility Group, the goal of which is to establish a charging infrastructure for battery-electric trucks.

Within the framework of the initiative, the E-Mobility Group aims to bring together a variety of interconnected professions – e-truck customers, power grid operators, energy suppliers, charging hardware manufacturers and charging software providers – to promote open dialogue and shared infrastructure solutions for truck customers within the network.

The eTruck Charging Initiative is part of the E-Mobility Group’s holistic approach to provide truck customers with a smooth transition into e-mobility. The close dialogue between the main players is also intended to speed up previously lengthy and complex planning and application processes for network connections. In addition, the participants are also concerned with aspects such as optimized load management of the electricity grid and sustainable electricity supply.
