“Deploying Charging Infrastructure for Zero-Emission Transit and Commercial Fleets”
Jim Castelaz, Founder & CTO, Motiv Power Systems – Panelist
Session: Wednesday, October 28, 2020 from 2:50 – 3:35 pm PDT
One of the largest sources of GHG emissions are fleets of busses and medium to heavy-duty commercial vehicles. The CEC is launching programs to spur the development of infrastructure to support zero-emission vehicle fleets, but many challenges must be surmounted. What demands will large, high-powered fast-charging depots place on the grid? How are the impacts on operations being addressed? How are procurements being targeted to address emissions in industrial and low-income areas?
“Battery Performance in Fleet Electrification”
