Arup, in partnership with global renewable energy leader Enel, today released Toward Sustainable Fleet Transitions, a report that brings together insights from practitioners and subject matter experts on how to catalyze, streamline, and accelerate sustainable fleet transitions. Drawing from decades of real-world experience in decarbonization and circularity, Arup and Enel synthesize lessons learned from ZEV specialists, energy providers, fleet owners and managers, and circular economy experts to set out a clear roadmap.
The decarbonization of the transportation industry will be critical to achieving emissions reduction goals for the built environment. Following last year’s release of Toward Sustainable Solar Energy, Arup and Enel’s latest report is a guide for navigating both the scale of opportunity and depth of challenges in electrifying vehicle fleets. Toward Sustainable Fleet Transitions aims to advance the transition of vehicle fleets, from electric vehicle procurement and storage to charging infrastructure, maintenance, and operations. The new report explores a broad range of considerations — such as stakeholder engagement, fleet user education, site planning and facility design — to minimize environmental impacts and maximize value in the long-term.
