As you all know by now, Run on Less – Electric DEPOT is going to be a reality, kicking off this fall with eight fleet depots with 15 or more electric vehicles participating at each depot. We are in the process of selecting the fleet depots that will be in the Run and will let you know this spring just who those participants are.

And while I can’t yet tell you about the fleet depots, I am excited to announce details for the Electric Depot Bootcamp. Based off the successful bootcamp from Run on Less – Electric, this year’s Bootcamp also will feature 10 sessions with more than 40 experts. The first Bootcamp session will take place on April 25 and will focus on best practices for utility-fleet relationships. The second session is scheduled for May 16 and will focus on grants and incentives for both trucks and infrastructure.

Subsequent sessions will take place every other Tuesday and will cover a wide range of topics including developments with the trucks themselves, faster charging, extending vehicle range, the availability of electricity and resiliency of the grid, zero-emission regulations, managing charging, scaling charging infrastructure, and site planning and construction.

You can find a complete description of the Bootcamp sessions and a registration form here.

We will again have quizzes following each Bootcamp training session so you can test your knowledge of a given topic. There will be a prize for anyone who successfully completes all 10 quizzes!

There is much to learn in order to scale EV deployments and we expect these 10 training sessions will provide useful insights and best practices. We look forward to collaborating with a variety of people across the EV ecosystem.

The Bootcamp sessions are free and are open to fleets, OEMs, component manufacturers, utilities, regulators, NGOs, charging system suppliers and anyone else with an interest in helping trucking move into a clean energy future.

If you are interested in sponsoring the Run, we need the support. Please contact me at or NACFE’s Director of Industry Engagement, Dave Schaller at
