Electrification of fleets is more than batteries; when a fleet can’t send its drivers to a gas station, there is room for many new technologies, solutions, and startups. This meeting will look the opportunities around fleet electrification including energy-focused dispatching, energy management, renewable energy generation, new ownership models, battery-as-a-service, and possibly hydrogen power and backup technologies.
Silicon Valley, California, June 2, 2022/Meeting Recap/ In our ongoing series of quick meetings, supported by Avanta Ventures, we discussed the subject of Fleet Electrification. Electrification of fleets is more than batteries; when a fleet can’t send its drivers to a gas station, there is room for many new technologies, solutions, and startups. The young companies introducing their innovative solutions at this meeting addressed the following topics:
Each startup offered new ideas to the Autotech Council community on how fleet operators can electrify, optimize, charge, and save money on fleet operations, and fielded questions from our expert panel who at these meetings represent Autotech Council members and the wider mobility community.
Thanks to our Fleet Electrification experts for running our Q&A panel:
Following on from the startup pitches, we opened the floor for a roundtable discussion where we learned how, compared to consumer considerations, fleet brings its own vehicle electrification opportunities and challenges, and how much the grid operator is relevant and important for enterprise mobility electrification.
Thanks to our Roundtable discussion leaders:
As always, presentations are available to Members in the Library.
