edie launches new business guide on integrating EVs into fleets

The guide forms part of an ongoing 'Masters' series on EVs

Published in association with E.ON, the report is free to download. It answers all of your FAQs on integrating EVs into your organisation’s fleet. It covers all parts of the EV integration journey, from developing adoption plans, to purchasing vehicles, to installing and operating chargers, and looking to the future by optimising use and supporting emerging technologies like vehicle-to-grid solutions.


Here in the UK, transport has been the highest-emitting sector since 2016. And, globally, road transport alone is the fastest-growing contributor to emissions.

With the UN anticipating that transport activity will more than double by 2050, organisations of all sizes and sectors have a role to play in scaling up zero-emission solutions including EVs. The transition to zero-emission vehicles needs to happen much more quickly, and it must include not only cars but vans, buses, trucks and lorries.

This is not just a climate imperative; businesses will need to prepare for increased legislation and regulation relating to air pollution and emissions.

And, there are, of course, potential financial benefits to be reaped from the EV transition. Lifetime operating costs of smaller EVs are already lower than for petrol and diesel models and, with EV technology costs falling and fuel prices at the pump rising, the business case is only growing stronger.

This new business guide to EV adoption provides an end-to-end overview of EV adoption for businesses keen to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon fleet.

E.ON’s general manager of E.ON Drive and director of E.ON Infrastructure Services David Butters said: “Ultimately, moving to EVs is not only the sustainable choice, but the economic one too, and the question for businesses is no longer if they should invest in charging infrastructure, but when.

“Making the move to EV may seem like a daunting task, but with the right partner you can enjoy a smooth and supported transition.”
