The EC accelerates the transition to electric fleets including light-, medium-, and heavy-duty vehicle electrification.Through programs like the Energy Secure Cities Coalition, led by the EC and City of Atlanta, the organization is working with cities to reduce US oil dependency through the electrification of municipal fleets.
Fleets for the Future (F4F) is a national partnership of regional councils, the Electrification Coalition, Clean Cities coalitions, and other industry experts tasked with creating a national procurement initiative designed to consolidate bulk orders of alternative fuel vehicles and infrastructure. F4F will reduce incremental costs and disseminate best practices on application, usage, and procurement strategies for the selected vehicles and related infrastructure.The Electrification Coalition serves as the technical experts for fleet electrification on this project.
The Dashboard for Rapid Vehicle Electrification (DRVE Tool) allows fleets to conduct rapid analysis for EV adoption, giving fleet managers the customized data they need to go electric in a way that maximizes cost savings and emissions reductions.
With just a few clicks, the DRVE Tool allows users to easily upload existing fleet data in any of a variety of formats and immediately view a data-rich analysis that includes available models of EVs, emissions reductions, and cost savings. The tool produces detailed results customized to the user’s ZIP code and fleet composition, revealing percent savings by EV model, total cost of ownership of EV models under different electricity prices, and side-by-side cost comparisons with conventional vehicles in a range of applications.
Users can enter local fuel prices, electricity prices, leasing terms, annual vehicle miles traveled, charging scenarios, and other factors to weigh options and scenarios with a high degree of localized specificity. The DRVE tool spans the light-, medium-, and heavy-duty vehicle classes to offer a comprehensive picture of selected scenarios, displayed as interactive charts and graphs. Users can download the results into a customized print-ready report.
The DRVE Tool provides quick and easy analysis for light-, medium-, and heavy-duty fleet electrification. It helps fleets evaluate which EVs to procure, based on cost savings and emissions reductions.
In February 2021, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announced the availability of $180 million of Fiscal Year 2021 funds for the purchase or lease of low or no emission vehicles as well as related equipment or facilities and workforce development training.
Your contributions to the Electrification Coalition help us electrify the U.S. transportation system, reduce U.S. oil dependence, and improve national and economic security.
