Technological innovation plays a vital role in addressing the challenges and complexities of climate change. This EBC Lunchtime Webinar Series developed by the EBC Climate Change and Air Committee highlights innovative tools to address climate change mitigation and adaptation needs for your projects. Led by industry experts, this webinar series will include a walk-through of each tool’s inputs and outputs, interface, use cases, and project case studies. The presentation series covers topics such as resilience planning, flood hazard mapping, greenhouse gas reduction, fleet transition management, and more.

A robust Q&A discussion with the audience will conclude each webinar.

Part Two

In this second webinar in the series, Fleet Electrification is highlighted as an innovative new tool. Michael Grant, Transit/Transportation Planner, and Matthew Palzkill, Senior Transportation Engineer, of Jacobs will provide an overview of FleetMax.

Fleet Max is a key element of Jacobs GREEN FLEET approach, evaluating service performance and power demands of eBus fleets using real-world data. FleetMax uses transit schedule data and route profiles for speed, ridership, and elevation to calculate the energy requirements of the system. Based on model scenario variables like bus type, battery size, and charging power options, the model simulates vehicle movements, energy usage, and battery charging at a stop-to-stop level for all the routes in a daily schedule. The resulting outputs demonstrate the successes and failures of the transit service while obtaining metrics for bus count, charger count, peak power profiles, and overall energy consumption. The FleetMax model is critical for simulating complex transit service to help minimize capital costs and operating expenses.

The audience will have plenty of opportunity to ask questions and dive deeper into the tool at the end of the webinar.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (1.0 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the webinar.
