NRG Energy, Inc. (NYSE: NRG) in collaboration with Smart Energy Decisions (SED) published “The State of Vehicle Fleet Electrification,” a study examining the transition to electrified vehicles away from fossil fuels for organizations. Sustainability and environmental goals were among the top customer priorities driving fleet electrification.
In the study, an overwhelming 86 percent of respondents expressed some level of interest in fleet electrification. While environmental drivers were the top priority, cost remains a consideration, especially among commercial operators. Other significant factors included compliance and evolving technology.
The study highlights that organizations are at different phases of adoption, even with fleet electrification goals gaining momentum. NRG recently adopted its own 100 percent by 2030 goal, to convert its entire fleet of light-duty vehicles to all-electric. Despite overwhelming interest in adopting all-electric vehicles, more than 50 percent of survey respondents reported some indecision and may plan to switch a small percentage of their fleet within the next five years.
The study interviewed more than 200 organizations regarding their vehicle fleet electrification plans and how decarbonizing transportation supports their sustainable goals.
