Freight Carbon Zero teamed up with Volvo Trucks for its first webinar giving viewers an explanation of the key terms, concepts and technology associated with carbon zero commercial vehicles. 

We headed to Gothenburg, the home of Volvo Trucks, to broadcast our inaugural industry webinar, the first in a series of Decarbonisation 101 explainer videos. Hosted by Freight Carbon Zero’s Andy Salter, delegates were guided through the basics of battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles by Volvo Trucks Vice President of e-Mobility Product Management Jonas Odermalm.

The session concluded with a short question and answer session covering some of the questions from the audience.
