$650M U.S. Charging and Hydrogen Network for Big Rigs Planned
Called Greenlane, the project plans to add charging stations and hydrogen stations along “various freight routes,” along the coasts and in Texas, starting with a Southern California site
Daimler Truck North America announced a $650 million joint venture to develop charging and hydrogen-fueling infrastructure for medium-duty and heavy-duty commercial trucks.
Called Greenlane, the joint venture was started in 2022 by Daimler, utility NextEra Energy Resources, and investment firm BlackRock Alternatives. It plans to add charging stations and hydrogen stations along “various freight routes,” along the coasts and in Texas, starting with a Southern California site, according to a Daimler press release.
The exact location and opening date will be revealed at a later time, but it may be no coincidence that the company announced this intent to “forge ahead” with the new project the same day that the Senate voted to block the encouragement of more electric trucks by rescinding tighter EPA rules—and just a couple days before California voted to adopt its own Advanced Clean Fleets rules in favor of more electric trucks.
