New growth opportunities available for best-in-class energy startups.


As a world-leading provider of sustainable transport solutions, Scania is committed to reducing carbon emissions across the heavy vehicle value chain. In pursuing this goal, Scania is examining technologies to upgrade its existing internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles into low or zero-emission alternatives, incorporating options like hybrid or other cutting-edge emission reduction solutions. 

Opportunity overview

The majority of Scania’s emissions stem from vehicles in customer use. Therefore, upgrading existing vehicle fleets presents an opportunity to support Scania in mitigating the carbon footprint of its product’s Scope 3 downstream emissions. This initiative explores innovative solutions capable of efficiently reducing the emissions from internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, without compromising performance or reliability. 

Scania seeks pioneering technologies and methodologies for heavy vehicle upgrading, facilitating a seamless transition of ICE vehicles into Low Emission Vehicles (LEVs) or Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEVs). Examples of sought-after solutions include hybrid technologies, energy recovery systems, carbon capture technologies, and alternative powertrain solutions that align with the robust performance standards of Scania vehicles. This opportunity extends beyond environmental benefits, aiming to find solutions that can increase the longevity and efficiency of heavy vehicle fleets.

Examples we're looking for

Hybrid upgrading

Smart technologies for prediction, real-time monitoring, and control of energy generation, storage, and consumption, ensuring optimal load balancing, capacity sharing, and efficiency. The sought solution should be capable of dynamically distributing power to meet the varying demands of BEVs, preventing grid overload and enhancing energy utilization.

Low and zero-emission powertrains

Upgrading may entail replacing or complementing traditional combustion engines and powertrains with lower-emission or electric alternatives. We are looking for novel and sustainable solutions that are adaptable to various heavy-duty applications, emphasizing seamless power delivery, long-term reliability, and minimal maintenance.

Power storage and management

Integrating new energy storage technologies, such as batteries, into existing ICE vehicles can be essential to enable upgrading, extending the vehicle’s range, and enhancing its performance.

Carbon capture

To mitigate emissions of heavy-duty vehicles, carbon capture technology holds promise for decarbonization. We are interested in different technologies or tools to capture and offload carbon emissions from the truck.
