Penske Participates in Commercial Electric Vehicle Charging Panel

Sean Yentsch, director of facilities at Penske Truck Leasing, will participate in a Commercial Vehicles and Extreme Fast-Charging Research Needs Workshop at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado, August 27-28.

Yentsch will participate on the OEM and Fleet Panel and discuss Penske’s electric fleet and electric charging infrastructure.

Workshop participants include vehicle OEMs, suppliers/equipment manufacturers, electric utility companies, government organizations and fleets. Participants will discuss the research needs and laboratory capabilities to enable a convenient, affordable, extreme fast-charging system that suits commercial trucking applications and avoids negative grid interactions.

Penske recently announced the installation of four commercial heavy-duty electric vehicle charging stations with 14 high-speed chargers at its existing facilities in Southern California. The company’s near term plan includes adding at least six more chargers, bringing the total number to 20.
