Planning for Electric and Hydrogen Vehicles

Coming Soon

In this video, we’ll explore the key steps and factors to consider when planning a transition to an electric or hydrogen fleet. We’ll discuss the importance of evaluating vehicle costs, range, charging and refueling infrastructure requirements, and how they impact your fleet’s overall operational efficiency and budget.

We’ll also examine the complexities of selecting the right charging and refueling solutions for your fleet, taking into account the costs and considerations associated with electric bus and truck charging stations, hydrogen refueling infrastructure, and compatibility with existing fleet management software.

Additionally, we’ll address the importance of understanding and adapting to evolving industry standards and protocols, such as OCPP and OpenADR, which can influence your fleet’s charging and management systems.

As you consider the transition to electric or hydrogen vehicles, we’ll highlight the role of various procurement models and the dynamics between fleet operators and software providers as well as, charging station and vehicle manufacturers. Establishing strong, collaborative relationships can help mitigate potential risks and ensure a successful transition.
