The Future of Electric Fleet Management with Hitachi’s Battery Charging and Management Services

This article first appeared in the Bus-News Magazine Issue 1 2024.

By Mike Nugent, Global Head of Sales and Delivery

Operating an electric bus fleet is an entirely different proposition to operating a conventional bus fleet.

It requires whole system change within the business and impacts fleet managers in particular. Managing this change and ensuring your fleet continues to perform its operational requirements is crucial to the success of your transition to EVs.

Hitachi ZeroCarbon’s battery charging and management services provide fleet operators with the tools to manage reliable and efficient electric fleets without the added complexity. Instead of treating charging operations and battery health as distinct components, this solution takes a comprehensive approach to the entire EV system to ensure your vehicles are always charged for effective operations. At the core of our solution is a technology platform that ingests and integrates data from both the charger and vehicle battery to enable enhanced fleet management, providing the right balance between ensuring vehicles are always charged to meet daily operations and leveraging battery data to optimise battery performance and extend battery life.

This Unique Solution Combines Digital Technology, Operational Expertise and Innovative Financing Models

Digital Technology

  • The battery charging and management services employ smart charging technology, ensuring operational continuity for your fleets at lowest cost.
  • We provide interoperability testing and integration across different battery OEMs, vehicle OEMs, charge point hardware and software. This allows fleet operators to decide what equipment to procure based on their operational needs. Going one step beyond this, the platform monitors the battery health of each vehicle and adjusts charging regimes to protect the battery assets and minimise maintenance costs.
  • By bringing together the technology from our ZeroCarbon Charge and ZeroCarbon Battery products, our electric fleet optimisation solution unlocks greater value for your business.

Operational Support Services

  • Our unified solution is more than just a technology platform; it provides hands-on operational support from our EV and operations experts.
  • We proactively manage risks and offer 24/7 support to ensure operational continuity, allowing you to focus on delivering exceptional service to your customers.
  • We take on operational risk with state-of-charge SLAs and service credit regimes.
