Many fleets today are asking how they should begin the electrification process. But what are the unique considerations that must be made when it comes to large fleets? Join the panel, “Large Fleet Electrification: Stakeholder Collaborations and Assessments” at the 2021 Fleet Forward Conference in San Jose on Nov. 10-12 to find out.
With unique challenges in dealing with multiple stakeholders, vehicle types, and locations, three fleets with hundreds of vehicles will share their roadmaps to fleet electrification, as well as the advisory process that led to these decisions.
Attendees will learn how to conduct an EV assessment using key results and metrics, and will hear stats covering the percentage of electrifiable vehicles by category, costs, emissions outcomes, energy usage and load profiles, forecasts, and next steps.
Michael Ambrose, manager of maintenance and construction for East Bay Municipal Utility District, will present the utility’s plan to electrify its fleet. Chris George, executive director at EVolve Houston, will share the coalition’s work to help major Texas public fleets electrify, including the City of Houston. Danita Park, director of EV and commercial development for NRG, will discuss NRG’s national fleet electrification strategy and greenhouse gas commitments. Finally, Yann Kulp, head of business development at eIQ Mobility, will provide national statistics and insights based on their work with 150,000+ vehicles across the nation. The panel will be moderated by Bobit’s Martin Romjue.
These panelists will share key results from their EV feasibility assessments, including the percentage of electrifiable vehicles by category, lifecycle costs, greenhouse gas emissions outcomes, depot considerations, and energy usage and load profiles, as well as their next steps in fleet EV execution.
The conference will also feature vehicle displays from Waymo Via and ride-and-drive opportunities with Lightning eMotors and Roush CleanTech. Other participants at the show’s Innovation in Motion includes Ford, BrightDrop, Volvo, and ELMS.
The seminar “Large Fleet Electrification: Stakeholder Collaborations and Assessments” will take place at 4 p.m. on Nov. 11. The 2021 Fleet Forward Conference convenes Nov. 10-12 at the Hayes Manion in San Jose.
