The Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Technology Collaboration Programmes (HEV TCP) is an international membership group collaborating under the International Energy Agency (IEA) framework and aims to produce and disseminate balanced objective information about advanced electric, hybrid, and fuel cell vehicles for governments and local authorities. As one of its activities, Task 27 named ‘Electrification of transport logistics vehicles (eLogV)’ has the scope to investigate the potential and feasibility of electric freight vehicles (EFVs) for road freight transport and urban logistics with the objectives, to summarize the status of vehicle and infrastructure technologies, implementation and hurdles, to identify early niche markets and commercialization opportunities and to provide policy recommendations for further research and deployment activities. To manage the work the activity was split into three steps: (1) Investigate the status of EFVs, (2) Development opportunities of EFV transport logistics and (3) Engaging with policy in the area of EFV transport logistics. The project delivered four presentations at international events and three accompanying research papers targeted at key stakeholders in industry, R&D, academia, NGOs and government. In addition to the presentations and research papers, the activity also held four international workshops, the first in Stuttgart (DE), the second in Amsterdam (NL), the third in Vienna (AT) and the fourth in Coventry (UK). These workshops attracted key stakeholder involved with logistics, electric vehicle technology, policy, etc. The presentations at the international conferences, the discussions at the workshops and the continued engagement with stakeholders all focused around the support and dissemination of the desk based research activity. In addition, the activity resulted in a number of key deliverables: (1) Vehicle Database, which presents the key facts of EFVs available on the market or presented as prototypes, (2) Project Profiles, which present key facts of on-going or completed demonstration projects from the partner countries, (3) Workshop Presentations provided by stakeholders, and around which the discussion points noted were arrived at. The activities within the project reached a wide target audience and the results of these activities presents a valuable resource that collates activities regarding EFVs in transport logistics in the partner countries. All of the results remain accessible on the HEV TCP Task 27 website (http://www.ieahev.org/tasks/e-logistics-task-27/) to support stakeholders involved in the EFV transport logistics.
