It also introduces new variables into the business strategy – including charging infrastructure and driver education. Fleet managers and business leaders approaching their EV initiatives holistically, develop an implementation and funding strategy, and leverage the new common “fuel” of electricity are rewarded with lower upfront project construction costs, sustained reduction in operating costs, and a meaningful reduction in localized greenhouse gas emissions. This session will cover three must haves for navigating the fleet electrification process, including but not limited to financing and acquisition, infrastructure, and change management.
