SEMCOG Webinar: Connecting Communities to Fleet Electrification Funding Opportunities and Resources
When it comes to fleet electrification, communities have the opportunity to lead by example. Across the country, a number of communities have started transitioning their light-, medium-, and heavy-duty fleets from Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) vehicles to Electric Vehicles (EVs). The reasons behind fleet electrification vary across different communities, ranging from environmental and cost saving benefits, to improving operational efficiency. Michigan communities are joining this nationwide momentum.
SEMCOG is providing educational opportunities and resources through a number of initiatives, including the Smart Cities and Community Fleet Collaborative (SC2FC), to support MI communities throughout this transition.
The results of a recent SEMCOG Community Fleet Study shows that high upfront cost and lack of access to EV charging infrastructure for fleets were identified as top barriers for community fleet electrification. This highlights the importance of adoption of EV affordability strategies by OEMs and State, as well as promoting available funding resources for communities.
This upcoming webinar – as the Third in the SC2FC webinar series – will focus on available Federal, State and regional resources and funding opportunities for community fleet electrification.
