BlastPoint’s latest report, U.S. Federal Fleet Electrification: Challenges & Opportunites, is available for download now. We’ve synthesized multiple, complex U.S. government datasets, translated them into easy-to-digest infographics, and offer them here so EV industry players have key insights at their fingertips.
Fleet Report Highlights:
- Approximately 645K vehicles make up the U.S. federal fleet today
- Of all civilian federal departments, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security holds the highest number of vehicles, at ~50K
- CA, WA, NY and other states show the highest capacity for federal fleet electrification
- Major hurdles to federal fleet transition and EV infrastructure expansion exist across the Deep South, the Dakotas and elsewhere
President Biden announced in January his goal for the U.S. to begin electrifying its federal vehicle fleet. The move, he said, signals “the largest mobilization of public investment in procurement, infrastructure, and R&D since World War Two.” For central players in the EV ecosystem, the idea of transitioning the federal fleet to electric presents both opportunities and challenges.
Location Analytics in the Move to Electrify Fleets
Some U.S. states, such as California and New York, are more prepared to support fleet electrification. They show more charging infrastructure and higher EV ownership overall than other states. Some of these same regions also show high numbers of federal fleet vehicles. Meanwhile, other states that operate a fair number of government fleet vehicles have a very low capacity for electrification, and few EV owners per capita.
These insights are key to understanding the full picture of where the Biden administration may seek to begin electrifying the federal fleet.
In BlastPoint’s newest report, U.S. Federal Fleet Electrification: Opportunities & Challenges, we explore these insights and more.
