Alphabet is introducing a new analysis service to help clients lower CO2 emissions and save costs by showing how businesses can integrate electric vehicles into their fleet.
Known as Electrification Potential Analysis (EPA), the study uses real client data. Telematics systems are fitted into vehicles in the fleet, which measure how far the vehicles travel, speed and parking. The information gathered reveals the total fleet energy consumption and CO2. The data is then used to create a fleet-driving profile.
Alphabet also runs an electric car consultancy programme, Alphaelectric, which advises companies on electric car take up within their fleet.
Alphabet said it performed an EPA with Interserve Italy. The EPA showed that 30% of the firm's 800-strong vehicle fleet could be replaced by EVs.
"Our objective is to bring comprehensive, forward-thinking eMobility to our clients in a way that's in line with their targets, be it reducing CO2 emissions or decreasing total cost of mobility" said Carsten Kwirandt, head of marketing and business development at Alphabet.
"Through our consulting approach and the EPA, we combine qualitative and quantitative methods to develop solutions that are simultaneously need- and target-driven, and seamlessly integrate into existing fleets."
