Electric Truck Bootcamp #2: Charging 101 – Planning & Buildout

In partnership with:

Sponsored by: Electrify Commercial



While much of the attention given to electric trucks is focused on the vehicles themselves, charging infrastructure must be equally considered and planned for. Charging electric trucks can be quite different from traditional diesel refueling processes and presents some unique challenges that fleets, utilities, and OEMs alike need to be aware of.

The Electric Truck Bootcamp is a 10-part educational series on electric trucks — hosted by the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) and RMI — for fleet managers, utility planners, policymakers, and more. While the Run on Less – Electric event this September is focused on today’s fleet and OEM leaders who have electric trucks already in operation, the Electric Truck Bootcamp is designed with “fast followers” in mind, to:
  • Increase industry awareness of electric trucks
  • Provide professional development opportunities to decision-makers at all stages of their electrification journey
  • Synthesize quick takeaways and recommendations from NACFE and RMI’s electric truck work to date
  • Convene fleets and other stakeholders across the electric truck ecosystem to discuss key opportunities and challenges as they plan for future deployments of electric vehicles
