Electric Truck Bootcamp #5: Incentives for Electrification

In partnership with:

Electric trucks currently cost more upfront than traditional diesel vehicles. And charging infrastructure can also be costly, presenting new expenses for fleets used to diesel fueling. Luckily, incentives are increasingly available for both vehicles and charging infrastructure from the federal government, state and local governments, and utilities.


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
