Preparing for the Arrival of Heavy-Duty Battery Electric Trucks

As our commercial transportation system moves increasingly towards electrification, fleet managers are left with complex questions beyond just deploying the vehicles themselves. Charging equipment, electricity rate structures, infrastructure upgrades, and new skills and safety requirements are just a few of the considerations fleet managers must now prepare for.

Watch this one-hour recorded webinar to hear from project partners involved in Volvo LIGHTS—an innovative project taking heavy-duty, battery electric freight movement from the demonstration phase to a widespread reality.

Participate in this webinar to hear from project stakeholders as they address the key issues around commercial vehicle electrification:

  • Volvo Trucks will provide an update on their Volvo VNR electric truck coming to North America, as well as an overview of the innovative Volvo LIGHTS project.
  • Southern California Edison will discuss key things fleets need to consider when installing charging infrastructure—including understanding timelines, calculating power needs, how to navigate permitting, leveraging available incentives, and more.
  • TEC Equipment will share tips on how a dealership can effectively prepare to support the unique sales, service and maintenance needs of electric trucks.
  • Reach Out will share insight into how to identify and engage the right community leaders to help reduce potential barriers to successful project implementation.
