E.ON and Nikola are combining their respective expertise to form a joint venture with a goal to decarbonize heavy-duty trucking. Nikola as a global leader in zero-emissions transportation and energy infrastructure solutions, and E.ON is one of Europe's largest operators of energy networks and energy infrastructure and a provider of innovative customer solutions. This partnership is expected to offer customers an integrated mobility solution to promote the use of hydrogen. Both parties have now signed a term sheet to underpin the collaboration and will be negotiating a definitive agreement to finalize the terms. The joint venture intends to combine next-generation Class 8 semi-truck technology with support solutions (e.g., service and maintenance) and a green and sustainable hydrogen infrastructure. As a result, the partnership has the potential to transform the high-emission heavy-duty transport sector. The vision of the joint venture is to promote the advantages that hydrogen offers at cost parity or better than diesel based on the total cost of ownership. The goal is to make hydrogen available nationwide at stationary and mobile refueling points to ensure unrestricted green mobility. The joint venture is expected to be finalized by the end of 2022 and will include the development of initial joint projects.
