Results of the 2015 Work Truck Electrification and Idle Management Study showed the daily idle time for work truck fleets. Daily idle times by industry show that the truck fleets in the utility/telecommunications industry had the longest idle times. Thirty-nine percent of respondents indicated that their fleets idled three to four hours per day while another 14% of fleets idled more than 4 hours per day. More than half of all fleets, regardless of the industry, exceeded one hour of idling per day. A weighted average across the industries indicates that only 34% of respondents’ fleets idled less than one hour per day.
