About this Course

Heavy-duty freight is the backbone of Canada’s economy, but a dependence on burning diesel, gasoline and natural gas threatens Canada’s climate and our ability to stay competitive in a fast-moving clean transportation sector.

Electrified transportation and clean fuels have been identified as essential components of Canada’s net-zero transition—but what does this mean? This course is designed specifically for transportation managers looking to understand electrification and clean fuel pathways for heavy trucking fleets.

Together, we’ll explore:

  • How transportation professionals can make informed decisions on viable clean fuel pathways ahead of potential zero-emission regulations in Canada
  • The economic trends, advantages, and disruptive forces facing hydrogen, electricity and other clean fuel sources
  • The role of hydrogen in heavy-duty transportation, and what changes in deployment could mean for the transportation sector

 

This online course is designed to answer these and many other key questions, arming decision-makers with the information necessary to craft workable business recommendations and clean fuel transition plans. Participants will deepen their knowledge of hydrogen, biofuels, and other clean fuel sources, learn about industry trends and challenges, and start to build a business case for clean fuels.

Deepen your understanding of clean transportation fuel technologies and their role in helping drive Canada’s transportation sector to net-zero emissions
Understand the trends, economic and climate advantages, incentives, and disruptive forces facing the development and deployment of clean fuels
Comprehend the business case for clean fuels with a focus on specific sectoral challenges and incentives
