BP certifies Lightning Systems in low carbon program

LOVELAND —Lightning Systems, designer and manufacturer of all-electric medium- and heavy-duty vehicle powertrains, has been certified under energy company BP PLC’s Advancing Low Carbon program. The ALC program was created by BP to encourage BP and its partners to identify lower-carbon opportunities.

Activities within the program include everything from carbon products to global research initiatives to partnerships with startups developing innovative new technologies. Since its launch in 2017, the program has grown to more than 50 accredited activities.

BP (NYSE: BP)  became an investor in Lightning in 2014. To be considered for the BP program, Lightning had to meet the program’s criteria. Activities within the program undergo a review of application materials by the ALC team of experts, review by an external advisory panel and assurance by a third party, Deloitte LLP.

The accreditation recognizes Lightning’s commitment to deliver better carbon outcomes, through driving efficiency using its commercial vehicle powertrains. The medium and heavy-duty trucks, buses, and vans powered by Lightning systems are effective in offsetting carbon emissions because they are fully battery-electric and produce zero tailpipe emissions. Lightning, a Loveland startup, continues to advance research and technology for zero-emission commercial vehicles.

“We are thrilled to be part of the ALC program and BP’s commitment to deliver better carbon outcomes,” Lightning CEO Tim Reeser said in a written statement. “This accreditation recognizes the talent, skill, and diligence of the Lightning team. They work day in and day out to ensure that we have the best processes, plans and procedures to create powertrains for a large variety of commercial vehicles that not only are changing the world — but that customers love to drive.”

BP’s ALC program is credited with removing 53 million tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, plus 4.7 million tons through activities delivered by BP partners since the program began in 2017.

Lightning Systems’ official name is Lightning Hybrids Inc., but the company began operating as Lightning Systems in 2017.
