From Pilot Project to Large-Scale Deployment

As transit fleets move from pilot projects into mass adoption of battery electric buses, there are lessons to be learned from the data center and solar industries – deploying high-powered electrical infrastructure at scale, with high reliability and low cost. These lessons will maximize cost savings and ensure buses are consistently charged and ready for […]

Reducing the Cost of Medium- & Heavy-Duty EVs & Speeding Up ROI

As more medium- and heavy-duty fleets consider EVs to meet zero-emission regulations and sustainability goals, the initial upfront costs of electrification may seem daunting. However, fleets have a variety of funding options available, which can be stacked to reduce the cost of vehicles and charging infrastructure—helping you realize a return on your investments sooner. Gain […]

The Importance of Life Cycle Assessment in Evaluating the Environmental Performance of Future EVs

Most current policies encouraging the adoption of zero-emission vehicles focus on emissions from vehicle operation only, omitting significant contributions from vehicle production and other parts of the vehicle and energy life cycle. As EVs become more efficient, low-carbon electricity becomes more common, and the size of the global EV fleet increases, emissions from production and […]

Get Ready to Charge: Designing and Installing Charging Stations that Support Medium- and Heavy-duty EVs

Designing and installing charging infrastructure to support your fleet’s short- and long-term vehicle deployments is one of the most critical steps in the transition to electric medium- and heavy-duty vehicles. Working with your utility early on in the electrification process streamlines the installation process and can ensure that both the utility-side and customer-side infrastructure are […]

Understanding Biodiesel’s Life Cycle Environmental Impact and New Indirect Land Use Science

You may already know that biodiesel is good for the environment, but transparent, reliable science reinforcing its benefits will help ensure its rightful place in the American energy landscape. A new study on biodiesel’s lifecycle energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions updates and reaffirms the long-understood benefits of using the renewable fuel. The report, recently […]

Researchers Identify A New Way To Curb Air Pollution

SALT LAKE CITY — Studies show those flashing real-time speed limit displays you see in neighborhoods are effective at telling motorists to slow down. Kerry Kelly thought: Could something like that help curb air pollution? Kelly, a chemical engineering assistant professor at the University of Utah, and Utah State University psychology professor Gregory Madden came […]

Part I: State of Sustainable Fleets Executive Panel

The State of Sustainable Fleets report gathers real-world data directly from early-adopter fleets across the U.S. to provide deep sector-specific insights into the adoption of natural gas, propane, battery-electric, and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles, against a baseline of diesel and gasoline vehicles. The analysis includes public, private, and for-hire fleets, including school, municipal/shuttle, urban […]

Exploring Renewable Hydrogen Production Pathways

For hydrogen to become a meaningful future energy resource, it will need to be derived from renewable resources rather than fossil gas. Around the globe, a number of forward-thinking organizations are exploring innovative, sustainable pathways to commercialize renewable hydrogen and deliver it to customers. Get the link for a Renewable Gas 360 webinar featuring notable […]
