In partnership with:

Sponsored by: Peterbilt

What exactly are electric trucks and why all the hype? NACFE, RMI, and industry experts recently kicked off the Electric Truck Bootcamp series with an overview of the ins and outs of this emerging technology and what is driving its adoption.
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
