Assemble internal and external stakeholders and create a project management strategy
Start thinking about where you will likely install charging infrastructure.
Will it be on property that is owned by your company, or do you need to bring the company landlord(s) into the discussion?
How close are chargers to existing electrical lines? You may reduce the cost of building infrastructure by by locating charging equipment close to existing electrical infrastructure.
How does the location of chargers effect operations? Ensure charger locations allow for unimpeded flow of traffic at your facilities. Ensure charger locations are conveniently located for vehicle operators.
Consider how your organization can utilize managed charging techniques, on-site solar, or battery storage to reduce peak load. Reducing the peak electricity demand at your facility can reduce the amount of utility infrastructure upgrades required at your facility, while also reducing your fleets monthly electricity bills.
How can your organization target its EV development project to reduce emissions occurring within disadvantaged communities?
Can prioritizing reducing pollution within disadvantaged communities allow access to additional funding support?
