The ECTN alliance aims to build and develop a network of terminals dedicated to heavy goods vehicles, with low-carbon energy supply solutions for the transport of goods on European motorways.

Eventually, the network of truck terminals will be open to all shippers and carriers, offering easy access to low-carbon biogas, hydrogen and electric power solutions for charging and refueling trucks.

A French experiment will be carried out between Lille and Avignon during 2023, to demonstrate the feasibility of the concept before deploying it on a European scale.
