In an effort to gain more insight into the status of both current and upcoming clean vehicle technology adoption, Gladstein, Neandross & Associates is looking for fleets to contribute to the second edition of its State of Sustainable Fleets report.
The report gathers real-world data directly from early-adopter fleets across the U.S. to provide deep sector-specific insights into the adoption of natural gas, propane, battery-electric, and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles. The analysis looks at public, private, and for-hire fleets, including school, municipal/shuttle, urban delivery, refuse, utility, transit, short-haul, and long-haul sectors. This report includes unique insights into vehicle sale trends, anticipated vehicle development timelines, real-world infrastructure and fuel costs, and the growing adoption of renewable fuels.
A key takeaway from the 2020 report shows that all sustainable vehicle platforms included in the report are seeing growth in fleet use across medium- and heavy-duty fleet sectors. Furthermore, 98% of fleets surveyed last year expect to continue the same level or increase their use of sustainable vehicle technologies and fuels.
While transit agencies are leading adopters of natural gas, BEVs, and even FCEVs, almost every medium- and heavy-duty fleet type the report assessed is using at least one of these clean technologies in growing numbers, including delivery, school bus, refuse, and heavy-duty short haul fleets.
The 2021 report will include updates on last year’s data, again focusing on natural gas, propane, battery-electric, and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles fleet adoption now and in the future.
