Businesses often pay five or six figures for custom project work, benefiting and utilizing our forecasts and insights for planning, preparing, and budgeting for the road ahead. That’s why we’ve developed CHARGING FORWARD: 2022-2040 BEV & FCEV Forecast & Analysis, to bring together ACT’s industry expertise with first-hand knowledge from nearly 40 players in the commercial electric vehicle market for the low cost of $28,000, saving you time and money without sacrificing quality, valuable information.
Would you like to contribute to the next edition? We invite your organization to join ACT Research and the nearly 40 industry participants in furthering this research as we look to provide our third update to CHARGING FORWARD in 2023. Sign on to become a multi-client participant for the third edition of the report and you’ll receive 30% off the final results (published in 2023) plus our current findings at no additional cost upon sign-up. Join before February 15, 2023, to receive both editions of the study along with your 30% discount.
The transportation industry is charging forward with decarbonization vehicles, but there are still unanswered questions about infrastructure, electric capacity and supply, natural gas utilization, if H2 internal combustion is viable, duty cycles, and payback. That’s why we’ve created this tool, to provide guidance for strategic business planning over the next 20 years. For a limited time, we’re calling on and working with battery and fuel cell electric, natural gas, hydrogen, and gasoline vehicle OEMs, suppliers, infrastructure suppliers, fleets, and more to continue to provide actionable intelligence with our third edition of CHARGING FORWARD.
You’ll gain access starting with a kick-off call, followed by delivery of the CHARGING FORWARD report and TCO models for review. Next, a review call will be scheduled to address any questions and review our assumptions. Then, we’ll review our Onboarding Questionnaire and recap the response in a follow-up call. Delivery of the third edition will be completed and presented in 2023.
Kick-Off Call – The goal is to make introductions to define roles on both sides of the partnership. In addition, understanding the objectives and needs of the participants, as well as those of ACT Research and the result of the end product is necessary to ensure all parties are on the same page. Finally, the next steps are addressed and outlined, including an overview of the Onboarding Questionnaire. Once the kick-off call is completed, the report deliverables (PDF analysis document, excel TCO models, and executive summary PPTX) will be delivered via email.
Onboarding Questionnaire – This document is a standardized list of more than 40 questions for all participants to review and address. Through responses, the research team at ACT is armed with additional data points to better refine and develop the TCO model. A follow-up call to review the questions (replies accepted in both written and oral form), dig into details, and add context to the results is a key aspect of this process.
Initial TCO Call – On a call approximately one to three weeks after the Onboarding Questionnaire follow-up, the ACT team will review the model and how it has been developed. At this time we encourage questions and challenge the assumptions that will then be taken into consideration when revising the model.
Intermediate Updates – Once the TCO call is completed, our team will reach out for follow-ups and questions on an intermediate basis as they discuss items with other participants and continue to develop the model.
Preliminary Report – A timetable has yet to be established, but roughly 45 days prior to publishing the third edition of the report, the ACT team will deliver a preliminary document for review by all participants. The preliminary document will include an analysis document, digging into the total available market, regulations, infrastructure, safety, insurance, and detailed TCO analysis by application, as well as the TCO models reviewing the base, slow, and fast adoption rates scenarios. We ask for review and feedback on the preliminary findings via a video call.
Final Report – Again, nearly 45 days post preliminary feedback, ACT Research will present the final report via email as a zip file with the PDF analysis document, three excel TCO models, as well as an executive summary PPTX. At this time, we’ll request a date for the executive summary call with our research team to review the findings and address any questions you may have.
