8 STEPS TO ELECTRIFY YOUR FLEET

Follow through the steps to electrify your fleet. Each featured step includes a comprehensive suite of resources from case studies to legislation pertaining to state fleet electrification.

STEP ONE: Assess the landscape

Assess, document, and compile existing progress, goals, priorities, policies, knowledge base, and barriers related to fleet electrification within all state agencies.

It’s important to understand how and where fleet electrification fits within existing state and agency goals, priorities, and operations. Some state agencies may have already started transitioning to EVs, run pilot programs, or conducted total-cost-of-ownership comparisons between EVs and conventional vehicles. And there may be state goals and priorities – such as economic development, air quality, equity, and regional leadership – that fleet electrification could help advance. Determine the level of awareness, education, and training of key agency staff, fleet management staff, maintenance technicians, and vehicle operators. Finally, investigate and document any real or perceived barriers to fleet electrification that may require new policies, technical assistance, staff training, or further research.
