In 2021, the federal government devoted more than $300 million to the electrification of airport ground vehicle fleets. That effort continues with the roll-out of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which promises $15 billion for improving airports — including sustainability projects like switching to electric vehicles (EVs) and installing charging infrastructure
If the nations of the world keep their current transportation and energy policies, the global fleet of electric vehicles (EVs) will grow to 145 million units by the end of the decade. If many governments adopt certain sustainability initiatives, the fleet could grow to 230 million vehicles by 2030. That will be around 12 percent of all vehicles, everywhere.
Not sure which safety standards to worry about as you build EV charging stations? Here’s a rundown of what’s out there for EVSE cable management.
Across industries, fleet managers are making plans for electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. They may be municipalities converting bus fleets to electric; distributors upgrading delivery fleets; or manufacturers switching trucks or material handling vehicles to run on electricity. These managers of industrial EV fleets may already be familiar with a decades-old electric vehicle technology: Forklifts.
