New Penske Energy initiative to advise, support fleets on electric truck infrastructure

Consulting offerings include strategic and operational planning, technology assessment, infrastructure designs and practical project implementation.

Penske Transportation Solutions and ForeFront Power have formed a new joint venture named Penske Energy LLC, based around helping fleets optimize and deploy electric charging infrastructure.

Penske Energy says it will provide fleet operators with comprehensive EV charging and energy infrastructure advisory consulting, including strategic and operational planning, technology assessment, infrastructure designs and practical project implementation.

To guide fleet operators, Penske Energy says its assistance includes assessing vehicle and route feasibility, tracking EV policy and incentive opportunities, and designing and sourcing proven EV charging infrastructure. The company says it will use its network of implementation partners and technology suppliers, to help streamline and simplify EV initiatives for its customers.

In a related move, Travis Hill has been named the new managing director of Penske Energy. He will focus day-to-day on leading the team, developing business, and collaborating with customers and partners. Hill joins Penske Energy from Penske Truck Leasing where he held numerous operations management and sales responsibilities for more than 20 years with the organization.

Andrew Cullen, senior vice president of fuels and facilities at Penske Transportation Solutions (pictured above), spoke at a press conference at ACT Expo announcing the new company. “Penske Energy has actually been operating for almost a year now,” he shared. “This is just the formal announcement. They’ve really been delivering on their mission to proovide zero-emission vehicle infrastructure solutions to the commercial transportation industry.”
