With EV use on the rise, dealerships have to prepare now or risk losing market share. Future Energy helps dealerships by providing comprehensive EV charging solutions that support remote monitoring of your fleet, enhanced security, and cutting-edge power management. We also engage with dealership employees, providing training that empowers the sales staff and streamlines the use of EV chargers for inventory management and vehicle repairs.
Our dealership solutions include a custom, comprehensive EV impact study that helps your dealership create a unique EV integration plan, start to finish. For example, Future Energy has partnered with Stellantis to help the original equipment manufacturer meet sustainability goals. The aim is to install EV charging infrastructure across more than 2,600 North American dealerships by the first quarter of 2024.
Hotels and Hospitality
Travelers increasingly expect their destinations to provide EV charging for their vehicles. Hotels, restaurants, and other hospitality businesses can use EV charging to attract customers, increase their dwell time, and showcase the brand. Future Energy’s experts work with you to identify your particular use cases and help you find solutions that best serve your guests.
The installation of EV chargers to meet client expectations seems like a simple idea. But it’s important to consider all of the complexities involved. These complexities include decisions about the type of charger to provide and other hardware choices, including the optimal location for EV chargers. Additionally, guest services personnel will have to prioritize guest demands and solve issues related to EV charging overnight. Future Energy helps you to define the strategies you need to manage power use.

Health Care Medical Centers
Health care campuses have many uses for electric vehicles. Shuttle vehicles often transport passengers around the campus. Generally, electric shuttle buses provide occupants with a quieter ride, even as they eliminate toxic tailpipe emissions. Medical centers also often have fleets of service vehicles to transport and retrieve goods both on and off campus. Future Energy provides EV charging solutions for electrified fleets of service vehicles and shuttle buses.
Plus, a health care campus generally has ample parking in which to offer EV charging to employees and visitors. And because medical professionals are concerned about public health, the ability to offer EV chargers helps to attract talent to your health care system.
Generally, many medical centers have advanced electrical infrastructure that can help power EV charging solutions. Future Energy has the expertise to tap into your existing power and provide detailed analysis about the infrastructure you might need now and in the future.

Future Energy’s consultants specialize in helping you identify your specific use cases and determine the supporting EV charging requirements. Our EV charging solutions address all types of commercial fleets, including:
- Last-mile delivery fleets, when electric vehicles are traveling 25 miles or less from the depot.
- Interstate fleets, when electric vehicles transport goods within state lines, generally around 200 miles or less.
- Intrastate fleets, which involve long deliveries across state lines.
Clearly, each type of delivery comes with its own set of EV charging needs.
Rental Car Fleets
Rental car companies are starting to invest seriously in adding electric vehicles to their offerings. The rental company Hertz has transitioned 10% of its fleet to electric vehicles. It has 500,000 EVs in its fleet with deals with Tesla, Polestar, and General Motors to add thousands more by 2027.
Other players in the $56 billion rental car industry are announcing plans to follow suit. Rental car EV fleets have their particular challenges, including the need for EV charging stations, the ability to train agents and mechanics, and familiarizing drivers with electric vehicles.

The nongovernmental organization Second Nature has a mission to accelerate climate action in and through higher education. It has more than 450 colleges and universities in its network. In 2020, it partnered with the Climate Mayors EV Purchasing Collaborative, with a goal to increase the use of EVs in university systems across the US.
Universities have many use cases for fleets. For example, university systems often feature shuttles for students and other personnel. Fleets of security vehicles and maintenance vehicles roam campus. And because many universities have set sustainability goals, electrification of their fleets goes a long way toward fulfilling these initiatives.
Employees and growing student bodies also benefit from robust EV infrastructure and management. Giving Universities opportunities to attract students with EV’s and provide the perk to existing and new employees.

Airport shuttles are prime candidates for states looking to address sustainability requirements. Airport shuttles operate on fixed routes, have stop-and-go operations, maintain low average speeds, and return to a central depot for maintenance and refueling.
States such as California have already mandated that its nearly 1,000 airport shuttles transition to the use of zero-emission technology by 2035. California estimates this regulation will reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions by at least 500,000 metric tons.
Airports are also increasingly incorporating EV charging stations in their parking facilities, for short- and long-term parking. The incorporation of EV charging for airport patrons presents numerous challenges that Future Energy can help address.
Electric aircraft tugs are already on the market. These are specialized vehicles that tow aircraft on the ground, such as in and out of hangars or parking areas.
