Fleet electrification: Panel of experts

The transition to electrification has become inevitable, but there are numerous challenges that may slow small and medium-sized enterprises in transforming vehicle fleets that are still primarily gasoline dependent.

As part of actively developing its electrification strategy, the Agence de mobilité durable has decided to bring together experts to share the challenges, considerations and solutions for businesses and organizations. To make this as widely available as possible, the Agence is hosting a panel on Fleet electrification, from theory to practice.
