Fleet Electrification is Capital Intensive and Complex
Fleet electrification is complex as several factors influence its design, cost, and performance. This is compounded by high levels of variability and unpredictability of mobility data. Electric vehicles also impose significant additional load on the local electrical network, often entailing significant upgrades to the electrical infrastructure at the facility and the utility grid.
EVopt System Approach
EVopt addresses the challenges in transitioning to electric fleets through a system level approach by joint modelling of transportation and energy.
- EVopt models the driving and charging process to determine the optimum size of the electric fleet – vehicle battery, charging and energy infrastructure.
- The model considers routes, operating schedule, battery characteristics, charging and vehicle dispatch strategy and utility grid constraints.
EVopt Application Suite – Planner, Simulator and Controller
EVopt is a modeling, simulation, and optimization platform to minimize costs, guarantee operations, and mitigate risks while transitioning to electric fleets.
The EVopt software is built for fleets of all sizes. EVopt Basic is now available with more advanced versions scheduled for release in the coming months.
