Fleet Electrification: Modeling & Cost Analysis

Fleet Electrification: Modeling & Cost Analysis

September 9, 2021 | Online :: Central Time

Overview

Sustainability, options, and savings are the 3 main reasons why fleets are electrifying. Decarbonization goals steer fleet operators towards electric vehicles (EVs) and as more and more models and charging solutions hit the market it becomes easier to make the switch. Finally, and most importantly, is the bottom line. As total cost of ownership becomes more transparent, long-term operational savings through EVs is the number one benefit compared to equivalent internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.

Attend EUCI’s virtual course, Fleet Electrification: Modeling & Cost Analysis to learn how to electrify your fleet. Hear best practices and lessons learned from fleet operators, auto OEMs, tier 1 suppliers, charging network providers, utilities, and leading consultants.

Learning Outcomes

This virtual course will provide attendees an opportunity to:

  • Discover what can be electrified from off-road to on-road fleets, from light- to medium- to heavy-duty vehicles
  • Gain a better understanding of power needs, charging infrastructure, and energy management solutions
  • Receive proven step-by-step guidelines for fleet electrification modelling and simulation
  • Tap into incentives programs from federal, state, local governments and utilities
  • Compare lease contracts of EVs to ICE vehicles
  • Evaluate total cost of ownership
