Zero emission technologies for heavy-duty freight vehicles can become competitive as a result of increa¬sing returns to scale coupled with high carbon taxes on fossil fuel. Through an integration of models covering, respectively, transportation demand, the vehicle fleet, and the energy system, a pathway toward zero emission road transportation in Norway has been sketched. By using certain input assumptions underlying this pathway as early warning checkpoints, qualified assessments can be made, in the years ahead, of whether we are behind or ahead of schedule toward the 2030 and 2050 greenhouse gas abatement targets.
