Can Thermal Monitoring Reduce Your Carbon Emission Output? | Utilimarc Blog

With EVs requiring such high processing power and fast charging times, battery temperature is a common concern and reason for accelerated degradation. High temperatures cause irreversible damage to batteries, ultimately affecting the battery’s state of health, performance and safety.

Are green refineries a viable option for alternative fuel production? | Utilimarc blog

The reasons for our dependence on fossil fuels, not only nationally, but globally, are clear to see. Fossil fuels are cheap to produce, abundant and reliable, and ultimately, have all the infrastructure in place to make production relatively easy.

how do you quantify the value of going electric? | Utilimarc blog

As with any major investment, the initial and ongoing costs must be weighed carefully against their ultimate value to figure out total cost of ownership. However, the metrics by which this value is measured must be clearly determined – if not, any value provided is subjective and non-quantifiable. So, how do we calculate this elusive figure called ROI?

How are zero emissions commitments affecting government fleets?

With so many short- and long-term environmental and economic benefits of a large-scale switch to electric technology, more businesses and governments on all levels are pledging to achieve net-zero emissions in the upcoming few decades.

Digging into your data will be essential in this transition, especially if you’re looking to identify opportunities within your operations structure that could in fact be more sustainable that they currently are. Telematics can be a large help, but the data means nothing if you don’t do anything with it.

The light duty service truck is a reliable workhorse for many fleets with its service body and GVWR less than 20,000. So, how productive do they remain and for how long?

When it came to straight wage, Utilimarc found quite a range of hourly utility technician wages — from less than $25/hour to greater than $52.50/hour.

With its fairly compact size, compartments and capabilities, it has made operating in the field extremely convenient and efficient. Utilimarc wondered if the truck is still performing strong, or if its prowess is starting to slow down.
