ELECTRIC FLEET DEPLOYMENT

There is more to electric vehicle fleet implementation programs than planning for fueling infrastructure.

Electric vehicles are poised to join every fleet. Transitioning to an electric fleet requires new items be considered during planning, implementation, and maintenance activities.

Fleet level charging system planning, design, construction, and operations is a complex endeavor that requires partnerships of cross-functional entities associated with each phase of system development and implementation. Fleet managers and fleet decision makers often get information regarding options from the vendors who are selling and providing the solutions. To ensure that each piece of the implementation is the right choice for the fleet, a neutral 3rd party is needed.

We serve our partners as an internal party that works in the best interests of your organization. Our understanding of the entire vehicle and energy ecosystem will lower your overall fleet costs and prepare you to scale electric vehicle operations in the safest way possible.

PHASE 1

PLANNING

The methods in which vehicles are purchased, serviced, and fueled are fundamentally changing due to new paradigms that Zero-Emission Vehicles (ZEVs) present.  The planning phase serves as a thorough exploration and study of the existing facilities, utility needs, and fleet goals. Budget and implementation risks will be minimized by completing planning activities.

Information acquired during the planning phase will be used to complete site design activities. These activities will include the creation of design deliverables that show all necessary construction on facility property. Using design drawings and specifications for bidding purposes will lead to accurate bids from implementation partners.

IMPLEMENTATION

PHASE 3

Purchasing the right vehicle products, charging infrastructure hardware, and software is important to long term fleet operations. The implementation phase will also include construction activities at the site, staff training, and commissioning of the vehicles and hardware/software.

Electric vehicles use battery modules to store energy that is used to propel the vehicles. These batteries add complexity to maintenance operations, as the high voltage circuits can be dangerous. The battery modules are an expensive wear items that lose storage capacity with both age and usage. Properly charging and maintaining the vehicles can help lower the degradation of the batteries that were a large part of the fleet capital investment.
