The deployment of zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) is growing rapidly in the Federal market. These exciting times for ZEVs present significant opportunities for development, but will require careful planning, data collection for efficient usage, and options evaluations for technology, as well as a cultural shift in the use and adoption of ZEVs. The use of telematics and data from charging habits/patterns, evaluation of alternative fueled vehicles, and careful selection of technology will help "drive" a cultural change toward adapting to electric vehicles (EVs). This training session will explore various technologies available for ZEV development, selection of EVs and/or alternative-fueled vehicles, use of telematics to support successful deployment, and in-depth knowledge on successful implementation of ZEVs to support a cultural shift.

Upon completion of this session attendees will:
- Recognize how data collection is performed and lessons learned with data collection programs;
- Identify how data analytics can help shape or form a electrification program for fleets of varying sizes;
- Identify key points to consider when planning and designing an electrification program;
- Recognize options for zero emission mobility (ZEM) including electric vehicles, fuel cell vehicles for different mobility types (passenger cars, mid-size trucks, buses, transit, etc.); and
- Recognize how data analytics and proper ZEM planning can help drive the adoption culture.
