Event description
Join manufacturers, fleet managers, policy makers and researchers to discuss opportunities for fleet electrification in BC.

About this Event

Commercial fleet vehicles such as medium and heavy-duty trucks and buses account for more than one third of B.C.’s transportation related GHG emissions. Zero emission vehicles play a central role in B.C.’s climate change solution, and we are pleased to invite you to explore the challenges, barriers and solutions to electric vehicle adoption in fleets with us.

This year’s symposium will welcome over 200 decision makers, analysts, managers, experts and policy leaders from industry, government, NGOs and academic institutions. Last year’s symposium was a resounding success, and the most common ask was to bring it back.
