A vision for net-zero
In alignment with Cogeco's ambitious climate action goal of slashing operational emissions by 65% before 2030, PowerON has completed a comprehensive Strategic Electrification Roadmap. This covers the electrification of Cogeco's entire fleet of over 1000 vehicles across Ontario, Quebec, and multiple US states.
Powering Cogeco’s Growing Electric Fleet
Pathway to Decarbonized Fleet Transportation
To achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, full fleet electrification is an important step on Cogeco's sustainability journey. PowerON is committed to delivering the necessary charging infrastructure to enable this transition by 2035. We have developed an electrification roadmap to ensure that the plan aligns with Cogeco's ambitious emissions reduction goals while enabling a cost-effective and future-proof rollout. Fleet electrification will play a crucial role in meeting Cogeco's greenhouse gas (GHG) targets, as the fleet is responsible for 38% of Cogeco's emissions.
PowerON's strategic roadmap for fleet electrification is designed to meet Cogeco’s GHG emissions targets in the most cost-effective manner, all while ensuring geographical coverage to reliably service the communities depending on their services. Our plan serves as a strategic guide, encompassing total cost of ownership, charging analysis, change management, training guidance, and emissions reductions forecasting. By rolling out a phased electrification approach at multiple depots, we aim to achieve electrification at scale for Cogeco. This effort is bolstered by leveraging visibility into Cogeco's long-term plan, which enables us to reduce capital costs over time through the implementation of future-proof and energy-optimized infrastructure.
