About the Class (Co-Hosted with Black & Veatch)
Amazon, Anheuser-Busch, Facebook, FedEx, PG&E, PepsiCo, Port Authority of New York, Schneider Electric, Unilever, UPS and Walmart are more than just household names—they’re all transitioning their fleets to zero-emissions vehicles (ZEVs). This is not only the wave of the future, but a switch that can immediately begin saving you money, especially if you take advantage of the increasing numbers of incentives. Successfully transitioning to ZEVs requires a lot of information gathering and careful planning, as well as developing new skills and handling negotiations that your firm may not have much experience with. This detailed course is designed to provide the specific information and skills you’ll require to make this critical change efficiently and cost-effectively, while reaping the very real benefits of a ZEV fleet.
This practical two-day Master Class provides a comprehensive overview of clean fleet transitions and administers a step-by-step guide to electrification with concrete, real-world examples. Attendees will learn how to avoid unpleasant surprises that lead to increased timelines and expenses, and also grasp the options for a phased transition, making the process easier by tackling it in stages rather than all at once.
In addition, this course will examine grants, incentives, and financing solutions that can enhance the benefits of ZEVs. Avoid expensive pitfalls by hearing from experts who’ve completed thousands of projects, and understand the challenges and opportunities, including lessons learned from companies who have already begun the transition.
This intensive course offers all of the problem-solving knowledge you’ll need – whether you’re just beginning to think about fleet transition or you’re already on the path – to plan and design a cost-efficient, sustainable, and resilient ZEV transportation system.
