Ready, Set, Charge, Fleets! Preparing for Mass Deployment of EVs

 This document is a resource to guide fleet managers as they transition their fleets beyond the first few electric vehicles (EVs). It introduces fleet managers to the world of energy management and helps them think about and tackle challenges related to the cost of charging many electric vehicles. It also provides guidance around employee adoption of EVs, programs, incentives and tools for EV procurement and management, and strategies to future proof operations and prepare for mass-adoption of EVs. This report draws on research by experts at Prospect Silicon Valley and real-world experience from Alameda County General Service Agency’s fleet.

Bay Area Charge Ahead Project, Public EV Charging Analysis and Lessons Learned. The Bay Area Charge Ahead Project (BayCAP) comprised the installation of 152 EV charging ports with 17 host partners at more than 46 individual sites. In order to inform future EV charging station projects, the stations were analyzed for usage based on location characteristics – time of day, day of week, and usage policies established by the site hosts. Data collected included start/stop charging time, start/stop plug-in time, energy consumed and price charged to the user.
