    Revolutionizing Fleet Operations: An Insider’s Perspective on a Zero Emissions Future | Urvi Nagrani

    Are you ready to join the Zero Emissions revolution?
    This episode is a reproduction from my 2nd podcast STTTREAM where I sit down with Urvi Nagrani, the founder of Climate Solution Consulting and an expert in Electric Vehicles (EVs) and fleet solutions. This episode is a must-listen for anyone looking to understand the future of trucking and the benefits of converting to Zero Emissions.
    Urvi and I dive into the topics that are shaping the industry, including:
    The exponential rate of adoption for EV features for trucking and why now is the best time to convert your fleet.
    Electrification isn't necessarily the goal, but Zero emissions is the goal, and Urvi explains why not every fleet needs to be electrified but every fleet needs to have zero emissions.
    How the IRA has unlocked the industry to have explosive growth soon
    The increases in quality of life for truckers when they make the transition to electric vehicles, including a quieter work environment and improved health.
    The impact on local economies, with statistics that show how $1 spent on electricity as fuel generates $16 in local economic activity and how electricity providers can benefit from new load.
    Urvi shares her firsthand experience with demonstrating the viability of electric buses and overcoming the misconceptions surrounding EVs.
    This episode is packed with valuable insights and information, so make sure to tune in to learn about the future of the industry and how you can benefit from the Zero Emissions revolution.
