Practical Learnings Mobilising an EV Pilot

Australian Red Cross Society mobilised a modest pilot of EV vehicles in different locations in Australia. Over the past year and a half some practical learnings have emerged along with some interesting and funny anecdotes. The Fleet team have worked with suppliers and clients to manage the mobilisation and create a successful environment for all involved.
This presentation presents those practical findings including:
• Tips on how best to engage with drivers for a successful experience
• Charging infrastructure, hidden costs and traps
• Maximising carbon reduction through the right mix of cars
