Steep Climb Ahead: How Fleet Managers Can Prepare for the Coming Wave of Electrified Vehicles

2021-01-29T16:46:56-05:00

This report offers the first comprehensive assessment of how major US fleet managers are approaching the electrification of their fleets. It is based on RMI’s survey of 91 fleet managers operating large fleets, as well as 18 in-depth interviews conducted with fleet managers representing a cross-section of fleet types.

High-Potential Regions for Electric Truck Deployments

2020-08-24T17:04:48-04:00

Regional haul, heavy-duty trucking operations are good candidates for electrification due to the segment’s relatively short-hauls and return-to-base operations. The Guidance Report proposes a three-part framework that the industry can use to prioritize regions for electric truck deployment.

Driving A Shared, Electric, Autonomous Mobility Future

2019-10-09T14:37:00-04:00

This report explores the evolution of shared mobility and electric transportation networks in China, India, and the United States. It evaluates the role of policy, economics, infrastructure, and behavioral norms in influencing mobility trends in these countries. The report argues that supportive policies are needed to accelerate this transition and help overcome behavioral norms that bias toward gas vehicles and the advantages of already-built fueling infrastructure.

Seattle City Light: Transportation Electrification Strategy

2019-10-09T14:38:16-04:00

This report from Rocky Mountain institute and the electric utility Seattle City Light (SCL) studies the potential impacts of increasing EVs in Seattle and offers insights for electric utilities to develop strategic transportation electrification plans that ensure grid reliability. The report argues that utilities should partner with city agencies to support "aggressive electrification commitments" and to ensure they keep up with technological changes. SCL is working directly with the City of Seattle through the EV Shared Mobility project to ensure that efforts towards transportation electrification are aligned.
