Over the last few months, we’ve run a survey that aimed to capture if industry-leading fleets are reporting on greenhouse gas emissions, how they’re doing it, and if they’re not – will they start in the near future?

How are you reporting on greenhouse gas emissions for your fleet? Utilimarc blog

Greenhouse gas reporting –also known as carbon accounting– is becoming more common at organizations, whether by requirement or done voluntarily for transparency. These reports measure how much emissions the organization emitted in a period, breaking it down into which activities contributed what amount and exactly which GHGs were emitted.

Can electrification have a negative impact on fleet performance?

Even when the right vehicles for your fleet become available, there is still the question of whether they are truly the better option. Fleet managers must justify that EVs would perform at the same level as their current ICE models.

will EVs have a specific impact on the environment? | Utilimarc blog

Electric vehicles tend to be the go-to green solution due to their zero-emissions claims. It is worth questioning, however, just how environmentally friendly EVs are.

should we be worried about ev battery degradation

For EV drivers, the main concern from the day the vehicle is driven off the lot is battery degradation. A degraded battery suffers permanent damage that reduces the energy capacity of the battery and the amount of power it can deliver.

Should I use telematics to track EVs? | Utilimarc blog

The benefits of connecting a fleet with telematics are pretty much indisputable. With such a deep collection of vehicle and driving insights, managers can dig into data to identify waste reduction opportunities and optimize performance. However, as many switch to electric vehicles they are wondering, are telematics just as useful for EV fleets?

why should we care about greenhouse gasses? Utilimarc blog

Greenhouse gases trap heat in the atmosphere, keeping Earth at habitable temperatures. However, with GHGs at an all-time high due, this leads to out-of-control climate conditions that threaten life across the planet.

Can your fleet be sustainable without electric vehicles?

With a major lack of electric vehicle options to replace medium- and heavy-duty ICE trucks, EVs are unfortunately not viable for many utility fleets yet. This doesn’t make ICEV fleets a lost cause for sustainable practice though.

Will temperature impact EV range?

Just as with any battery-operated item, there is an optimal operating temperature for EVs. Because of this, fleets operating in areas with extreme weather must keep this in mind during the peak of harsh winter and summer months.
