Fleet Electrification Toolkit

Fleet Analysis Tools

Conducting a thorough fleet analysis is an essential step in the process of fleet electrification. A fleet analysis will help to identify which vehicles are best suited for electrification, what charging infrastructure is needed, what the up-front and lifetime costs and savings will be, and what the emissions and greenhouse gas emissions implications are. Fleet analysis tools range from simple spreadsheets a fleet manager can input data in, such as Argonne National Laboratory’s AFLEET tool, to in-depth analysis and individualized consulting services, such as Merge Electric Fleet Solutions and Sawatch Labs.

The elimination of tailpipe emissions is a significant benefit of fleet electrification, especially in a state like Utah that experiences unique air quality challenges. Fleets interested in electrifying their vehicles can leverage Argonne National Laboratory’s Heavy-duty Vehicle Emissions Calculator to estimate the nitrogen oxide, particulate matter, and greenhouse gas emissions of alternative fuel MDHD vehicles. Fleet managers can calculate results for multiple project types to determine how to prioritize which vehicles to electrify and when.

The Fleet Procurement Analysis Tool from AtlasEV Hub equips users with information on the financial viability and environmental impact of electric vehicle fleet procurements, including light-, medium-, and heavy-duty. It allows for side-by-side comparisons and provides location-specific information.

For the electrification of school buses, the Electric School Bus Initiative provides a Total Cost of Ownership Calculator and an overview of the cost of owning and operating electric school buses in their “All About Total Cost of Ownership” resource.

The recently approved Inflation Reduction Act has made some information on this website outdated. We are working to update ASAP. In the meantime, please consult a tax expert on all incentives and rebates listed.
