Fleet charging - a catalyst for the EV revolution

PwC & Cornwall Insight have partnered to better understand and explain the rapidly evolving market for fleet electrification.

Fleet charging has the potential to revolutionise Electric Vehicles (EVs). It has the scale to accelerate the adoption of EVs across the UK, improve air quality, lower noise pollution and ultimately play a critical role in meeting net zero.

As a result of this evolution, a myriad of opportunities, as well as challenges, are emerging for fleet managers, charge point operators and investors. While opportunities are the target, those who have a deep understanding of this market will certainly be the leaders.
