The AFV Acquisition Screening and Analysis virtual training hosted by NREL is designed to introduce Fleet Managers to the AFV Screening Tool in FleetDASH and other available analysis methods that identify existing fleet vehicles as good candidates for replacement by electric vehicles or other AFVs. The course follows the Electric Vehicle Champion training series that introduced electric vehicle technologies. Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to identify the best EV and other AFV candidates in their fleet in support of the annual vehicle ordering cycle and outyear planning.
