London, UK (PRWEB) September 08, 2011
It is predicted that by 2020, 14 million Plug-in hybrid and pure electric vehicles will be integrated into fleets and more than 120 million by 2030 (Electrification Coalition). With Obama currently pushing for EVs to be prominent on roads across the country, the integration of PHEV/EVs into fleets is the key to driving down prices and generating mass EV adoption.
It’s clear to Electric Vehicle Update that the space is very exciting with lots of activity. However, there are many question marks surrounding the ability of electrified vehicles to complete the relevant applications as efficiently as current gasoline or diesel vehicles which is causing a road block for PHEV/EV adoption.
Companies are taking note of the global climate and investing more into reducing their carbon footprint and implementing significant sustainability policies. For those with a fleet of vehicles, changing from gasoline/diesel to PHEV/EVs is high on the list to achieving these goals.
With the right partnerships and company consolidations between all parts of the ecosystem a clear and efficient market place can be established that overcomes the current tech. concerns of the fleet managers.
PHEV/EV Technology for Fleet USA 2011 Conference & Exhibition (Nov 30 – Dec 1 2011, Novi, MI, USA) will bring together a line-up of industry experienced speakers from across the ecosystem to discuss requirements from all aspects of the technology to ensure fleet managers can use these vehicles at the lowest possible total cost of ownership (TCO).
Learn about the latest business model solutions and maximize on partnership and networking opportunities. An independently researched program and a world renowned collection of over 30 expert speakers will ensure your business is at center of activity in this rapidly developing marketplace.
