Electrifying Transit in Canada | Webinar by AECOM & BetterFleet

March 19, 2024 | 1:00 - 2:30 PM

Meeting Location: Webinar

Session Type: Workshop

Topic Description

The race to decarbonize transit agencies across Canada is picking up as they seek to electrify fleets with battery-electric and hydrogen vehicle technology. As we scale fleets of zero-emission vehicles, new approaches have emerged to simplify the transition and provide comprehensive solutions with emerging technology and providers.

AECOM and BetterFleet have teamed up to help Canadian transit agencies make the shift to zero-emission fleets, helping to simplify the process from end-to-end with proven solutions, a team of experts with unparalleled experience, and a data driven-approach.

This webinar will explore methods transit agencies are using to electrify their fleets efficiently while reducing costs and how holistic project management can streamline the journey. We’ll also cover three of the top challenges fleets are currently facing in the journey to zero-emission technology:

  • Moving from Planning to Action: We’ll discuss the challenge transit agencies are experiencing when moving from a plan on paper to actual implementation of zero-emission vehicles and infrastructure, and look at ways to streamline the process.
  • Managing Energy Demand and Costs: From estimating anticipated power demand to avoiding peak times and implementing charge management strategies, managing the amount and cost of energy consumption for an electric fleet is complex and new territory for transit fleets. This webinar will touch on energy management strategies being implemented for transit bus fleets throughout North America.
  • Fire Safety for Electric Buses: EV fire safety has risen to the forefront of industry discussions on fleet electrification, and this webinar will also take a look at best practices bus fleets are implementing for fire safety.
