Fleet Electrification 101

Fleet Electrification 101

October 20, 2022 | Online :: Central Time

“The networking opportunities are tremendous and well worth the time to attend the event.” Fleet Manager, City of Sacramento

“Fantastic event. Well coordinated. Looking forward to the next event.” Fleet Advisor, Sempra Energy

“As a vendor, I wanted to attend this conference so that I could better understand the wants and needs of the fleet manager. This conference was hugely successful for my objectives and I look forward to the next event.” VP, PowerBully

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.

EUCI’s 2022 edition of Fleet Electrification 101 features even more utilities than before. Attend to learn how utility fleet electrification programs can assist the transition to electric vehicles in support of decarbonization goals and operational savings.  Hear best practices and lessons learned from fleet electrification program managers from Evergy, National Grid, NYPA and Xcel Energy, and industry leading solutions providers such as Black & Veatch, Enel X, Next Era Energy and more!

Learning Outcomes

This virtual conference will provide attendees an opportunity to:

  • Gain a better understanding of the utility’s role in fleet electrification
  • Hear more about power needs, charging infrastructure for fleets, and energy management solutions
  • Review utility case studies on fleet program deployment, daily operations, and other utility services and incentives
  • Discover what can be electrified from from light- to medium- to heavy-duty vehicles, and learn more about vehicle performance
  • Get proven step-by-step guidelines for deploying electric vehicles into commercial and municipal fleets
  • Identify how microgrids can provide resiliency for fleet charging depots
  • Plan for the long term and for diverse and predictable fuel costs
  • Evaluate total cost of ownership

9:00 – 9:45 a.m. :: The Utility’s Role in Fleet Electrification

  • This opening session will highlight what fleet managers want to know:
    • Does my utility provide a supportive landscape for me to electrify?
    • Are the state utility regulatory policies favorable to fleet electrification? (For example, Make-Ready)
    • Is the utility’s grid upgrade request process transparent? (Can I get an estimate of timeline and cost in a reasonable amount of time? Do I need to hire an engineering consultant just to fill out a form to get that answer?)
    • Does the utility offer rates that are attractive for overnight charging like a time-of-use rate?
    • Does the utility have staff that can walk me through the above two bullet points that understand fleets and charging technology?
