Electric Fleet Planning Simplified
Get data driven insights about routes, vehicles, charging, and financials that support the operational mission of your fleet. EVopt is used by fleet operators and engineering firms to create cost effective electrification plans and confidence in each.
Assess will be Available in 2023!
From EV route suitability to charging system composition planning and electricity load control, the EVopt software-as-a-service platform guides fleet operators and their team through a plan, procure, build, and operate decision process.
Due to the multi-faceted nature of the problem and the interdependence of many variables, fleet electrification projects are difficult to plan. For example, batteries constitute a large share of vehicle cost and its size varies depending on routes, terrain, operational characteristics, weather conditions and charging strategy. The size, type, and cost of the charging infrastructure depend on battery size, charging strategy, operating schedule and queuing strategy.
Additionally, the unpredictability and variability of parameters such as arrival/departure times, route-specific energy usage, etc. pose additional challenges. The challenge is sifting through this complexity and determining the optimal solution that minimizes investments, reduces total cost of ownership, meets operational requirements, minimizes risks, and eliminates any adverse impacts on the electrical network.
In order to meet all of the requirements, it is required to jointly model the transportation system and energy (driving/charging) process, quantifying electrical demand, assessing impact on the electrical distribution network, optimizing the system, and validating the design through end-to-end simulations. Microgrid Labs has developed the EVopt software platform for this exact purpose.
Fleet Electrification Solutions
The EVopt software package consists of two components—EVopt Controller and EVOPT Planner. We also offer consulting services. Learn more about each of our fleet electrification solutions below:
Fleet Electrification Planning Tool
EVopt Planner takes a systematic approach to transitioning to an electric fleet by optimizing the design of the fleet electrification system. Use EVopt directly, or rely on MGL ‘s advisory service for a Fleet Assessment.
Microgrid Labs Consulting
Microgrid Labs extends the power of EVopt into consulting services about energy system design and resilience.
