HOW TO KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE ‘NET ZERO’ ROADMAP
In a recent survey, Gartner found that 65% of decisions being made today are more complex (involving more stakeholders or choices) than they were two years ago – and the lines between strategic, tactical, and operational decisions are blurring.
One very complex challenge is deciding on the right approach for your company as you navigate the seemingly inevitable pathway to ‘net zero’. Most of us in the commercial vehicle industry have been watching, sometimes cynically, as EVs have been forced into that commercial decision tree by both regulatory and social commentary.
Viewing from the top-down it is clear that there are three large segment views that either drive or limit EV adoption. Not to over simplify, but 1) the size of fleet (larger fleets can afford to experiment more and expect to gain from the social benefits), 2) the geography of the fleet (the extreme heat and cold affect, as well as access to charging), and of course 3) the business use case of the vehicle (heavy loads not so good, urban delivery a great fit.)
Each segment has permutations, which, when combined create an algorithmic increase in complex choices. The push to ‘regulate change’ has surfaced real life issues related to each of those ‘buckets’. Effective decision making today requires increased information, data, and analytics to drive better business outcomes. Although there definitely is a lot of information around EVs and other alternative fuel choices, in reality, most information being produced has a goal to influence- not genuinely educate.
So where can fleets and their stakeholders in the industry find independent and objective information and data, and hear how others might be analyzing options?
A new resource center launches on Comvoy.com this month called NuPropel! The mission? To curate and provide objective, diverse and broad information for the industry all about advanced fuel solutions.
NuPropel is the place that industry stakeholders can trust to be both current and neutral. Although sponsors will be selected to help drive growth, they too will be curated and expected to provide value beyond simply ‘hawking their wares’.
Director of Business Development for Comvoy.com, Candy McCollum, expressed, “We truly want to help visitors to our marketplace have greater access to trusted information, to be more efficient in their research, and to empower them to make better decisions for their fleet’s future, whether they are a fleet of thousands or of three.”
Comvoy.com plans to add sponsor partners slowly and with great discernment. On launch they are proud to feature Mullen as a truly viable solution for a new era of clean, connected commercial vehicles. In addition to overall advanced fuel educational information, NuPropel will be featuring a checklist for EV adoption readiness, a national charging network link, and will be offering up new content regularly.
Founder and Chief Vision Officer of Work Truck Solutions Kathryn Schifferle added, “When we launched Comvoy.com in November of 2019 as the first commercial vehicle national marketplace, our long-term commitment was to continue to provide more than a commercial vehicle search platform, with accurate pricing and detailed upfit configurations. We committed to delivering information, news, and data, and are here to help lead the industry that powers 80% of the U.S. GDP into the net zero future it deserves.”https://commercialvehiclepro.buzzsprout.com/2039167/14081075
