Fleet Transformation: How to Electrify?
As the total cost of ownership of electric fleets is becoming lower than that of fossil fuel alternatives, many fleet operators are considering to switch. This switch entails more than just changing the vehicles themselves and getting a fuel card: infrastructure, route planning, required range and load all have to go into the decision to avoid unpleasant surprises. In this session, fleet operators and charging infrastructure providers will be showcasing best practices on how to build the infrastructure needed for a swift switch to electric vehicles. Furthermore, the session will discuss requirements necessary for the transformation of public transport fleets, commercial vehicles and last mile solutions.
