Under a non-binding MoU, Global Warming Solutions (GWSO) will integrate its 3-in-1 sodium battery into DVL Express’ commercial truck fleet of Class 7 and Class 8 semi-trucks to accelerate the transition to zero-emission transportation.
Prototype testing of GWSO’s sodium battery in DVL Express trucks is expected to start in the first half of 2024, and the technology will be completely integrated into DVL's fleet by 2026.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency estimates, medium- and heavy-duty trucks account for 23% of transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S.
The technology’s integration into the truck fleet is anticipated to reduce carbon emissions by over 100,000 metric tons annually. Additionally, dependence on fossil fuels can be reduced by 75% due to the battery's capacity to produce hydrogen on demand.
The agreement between GWSO and DVL Express is subject to negotiation and execution of definitive documentation acceptable to both parties.
