Hitachi Vantara reduces emissions through solar power

We are delighted to announce our recent partnership with Hitachi Vantara.

Hitachi Vantara, a data-driven company, aims to reduce CO₂ emissions to zero by 2030 and make its fleets more sustainable.

To make the next leap towards sustainability, IM Efficiency has partnered with Hitachi Vantara European distribution center to implement SolarOnTop on long-haul trucks.


SolarOnTop is an on-board solar technology that improves energy efficiency, reduces carbon emissions by 7 tonnes/year and fuel consumption by 2.000 liter/year.

‘‘Although EVs are gaining momentum with consumers and certain industries, they’re not an optimal choice for long-distance delivery, primarily due to challenges with charging and range. But the addition of solar could dramatically boost energy efficiency of our diesel-powered trucks’, while saving money and helping lower carbon emissions.” Quote: Hitachi Vantara.


The SolarOnTop technology can contribute to solving the current challenges faced by Hitachi Vantara's delivery truck fleet:

We're looking forward to our newest sunny cooperation and are happy to work with Hitachi Vantara and Rhenus High Tech GmbH, the market leader for technical distribution, to implement SolorOnTop technology within their fleet of vehicles.
