The Electric Truck Bootcamp is a 10-part educational series on electric trucks appropriate for fleet managers, utility planners, policymakers, and more.
While the Run on Less – Electric (RoL-E) event this September is focused on today’s fleet and OEM leaders who have electric trucks already in operation, the Electric Truck Bootcamp is designed with “fast followers” in mind, to increase industry awareness of electric trucks, provide professional development opportunities to decision-makers at all stages of their electrification journey, synthesize quick takeaways and recommendations from NACFE and RMI’s electric truck work to date, and convene fleets and other stakeholders across the electric truck ecosystem to discuss key opportunities and challenges as they plan for future deployments of electric vehicles.
The Electric Truck Bootcamp is conducted via virtual trainings held biweekly from April through August leading up to RoL-E. The Bootcamp is free to attendees thanks to the generous support of RoL-E sponsors.
Each training will focus on a different topic relevant to electric trucks (see full list of topics below) and will include presentations and Q&A with three to five subject matter experts. Attendees are strongly encouraged to submit questions in advance of the trainings while registering.
Attendees can choose to attend one, some, or all of the trainings, and those who demonstrate comprehension of the material — via optional online quizzes following each training — will have the opportunity to earn digital badges that recognize their expertise and which can be shared via attendees’ social networks. Badges are available for those who complete one, five, or 10 trainings via runonless.com. Participation in the quizzes and badging system is not required for participation in the Bootcamp trainings.
