Advanced Clean Trucks - Fleet Operations Survey
The introduction and arrival of zero-emission trucks for a variety of applications, a market is starting to emerge for the cleanest possible vehicles on the road today. Battery-electric and fuel-cell electric trucks offer opportunities for fuel savings and maintenance reductions that can generate savings over the life of the vehicle when placed into the right operations. The purpose of this survey is to better understand what applications these vehicles may be deployed in and how many vehicles present good opportunities for electrification. This survey is focused on Class 2B-8 vehicles (GVWR greater than 8,501 lb.). The results of this survey will be used to better understand potential barriers in heavy-duty electrification as well as inform manufacturers and utility companies what markets offer the best opportunities for electrification.
Because this survey has been sent to your address based on current DMV registration information, your company may have received more than one copy if your vehicles are registered to more than one address. We ask that you fill out only one survey for each facility/terminal where trucks are operated and/or dispatched.
Note: for this survey, a “truck” is any vehicle with a GVWR greater than 8,501 lb. A “terminal” is any location from which trucks are parked or dispatched. Please complete and return the survey even if you believe zero-emission trucks are not applicable to your operation.
This survey consists of three parts. Part A helps identify what your company does and some basic information about your fleet. Part B helps identify where your business operates and whether there may be issues with infrastructure. Part C asks for information about the most common truck types in your fleet as well as data on individual truck operations if available.
If you are writing your responses by hand and need extra space, you can add extra pages at the end of this survey with the division’s name, your contact information and the question number to which the answer refers.
