Accelerating Fleet Electrification

In a recent report, Guidehouse Insights identifies key actions to electrify commercial transportation and reduce carbon emissions

Improved electric vehicle (EV) technology allows for lower costs, greater range, and faster charging, which is further enabling EV use in the commercial transportation sector. However, fleet operators also face challenges that may inhibit adoption.

A new Guidehouse Insights report, The Road to Fleet Electrification, led by Scott Shepard, senior research analyst at Guidehouse Insights, prepared in partnership with Ceres and the California Trucking Association, and funded by Amazon, describes specific actions utilities, regulators, and policymakers can take to make fleet electrification more successful. These include:

  • Access to renewable energy
  • Alternative rate structures
  • Upfront information
  • Reliable electricity supply
  • Flexible terms and requirements
  • Streamlined paperwork and processes
  • Technology interoperability
  • Fleet electrification expertise

Through these improvements, the report asserts that electrified fleets can become an asset for a more efficient and sustainable grid, offering opportunities for the environment, businesses, and all electricity customers.
