Plugged in Workforce | Exploring Home Charging for Staff Fleet Cars

This CPP webinar features case studies of two very different approaches to staff-charging of fleet vehicles in New Zealand. Spotlighting the Bay of Plenty Regional Council’s approach vs The Warehouse Group, a leading New Zealand company, and unpacks the decisions and rationale applied in how they have decided to manage staff fleet vehicle charging methods.

Shifting focus to Australia, this webinar also explores the opportunity  for councils  to apply for ARENA’s $6.2 million funding in Origin’s Energy’s Accelerate EV Fleet Program,  supporting the installation of smart chargers that seek to mitigate extra operational costs of EV fleets. We also hear from an Amped Consulting EV charging expert who regularly consults with state and local councils on electrifying their fleets. Watch this webinar to hear some practical insights, best practices, and real-world anecdotes, equipping you with the knowledge needed to navigate the transition to home-based fleet car charging.
