eMobility Hubs for a Greener Future
At present, managed charging and maintenance hubs for fleets are not available to fleet owners. This slows the transition to EVs and results in continued GHG and particulate emissions. To meet this need, ParkMyFleet is creating eMobility hubs to provide managed charging and maintenance that support community health and sustainability. Its hubs will offer a centralized location for charging electric last-mile delivery and rideshare vehicles. This would also encourage job growth by bringing local drivers to this location for their company vehicles. ParkMyFleet's solution will be successful because of a demonstrated history of success and its matching software that provides ease of use for the consumer and efficiencies in energy utilization resulting in a cleaner community. We intend to accelerate the deployment of last-mile delivery EVs and local rideshare EV adoption by providing a centralized, modular charging location that can be replicated in other communities.
ParkMyFleet's eMobility hub is a smart, connected, secure, and managed hub designed to help businesses transition their fleets of medium and heavy duty (MD/HD) trucks and buses to electric while providing services to ensure maximized uptime and low-cost charging. ParkMyFleet achieves this by purchasing lots in locations near fleet service areas and by partnering with charging infrastructure and managed charging companies. ParkMyFleet hires locally and manages lot operations to help its customers keep their fleet vehicles charged and operational.
A large hurdle as companies consider the transition to electric MD/HD trucks is the cost of infrastructure and the uncertainty of managing charging. While the cost of the vehicles is clear based on the OEM, infrastructure costs are harder to plan for, especially when considering moving to a different location. ParkMyFleet takes care of this uncertainty by installing the charging infrastructure and managing the charging operations to keep the fleets charged for when they're needed.
The inclusion of a ParkMyFleet eMobility hub will benefit this disadvantaged community in three distinct ways: it will:
- draw businesses to the area and closer to an underutilized workforce,
- provide cleaner air and reduced noise pollution to nearby residents who would otherwise be subject to diesel fumes from the vehicles operating in the area, and
- encourage EV adoption among local residents.
