Penske and ForeFront Form Penske Energy to Support Commercial Fleets on EV Infrastructure

Penske Transportation Solutions and ForeFront Power have formed a new joint venture, Penske Energy, which aims to help commercial fleet operators plan, design and deploy optimized EV charging infrastructure capabilities that support and safeguard their operations.

“Together, we will create synergies benefitting commercial fleet customers by leveraging Penske’s deep fleet expertise along with ForeFront Power’s infrastructure and renewable energy development expertise,” Drew Cullen, senior vice president of fuels and facilities at Penske Transportation Solutions, said.

Penske Energy aims to 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. The Penske Energy joint venture will leverage the core strengths of both organizations, including Penske’s 55 years of experience providing commercial transportation solutions and ForeFront Power’s deep experience as an award-winning developer and asset manager of zero-emission energy infrastructure.

“We’re pleased to form the Penske Energy venture to support the commercial fleet electrification work accelerating across the U.S.,” Dan Taylor, chief strategy officer at ForeFront Power, said. “The ForeFront Power team brings over a decade of experience working together to develop critical energy infrastructure for organizations ranging from airports to manufacturing facilities, food and beverage organizations, hospitals and universities. The Penske Energy team is here to guide organizations through the entire process, from system design, to understanding incentives, to assisting with implementation and ongoing operation.”

“We’ll work with our longstanding supplier partners in the energy and energy infrastructure sector and bring to bear the best possible solutions available for our commercial fleet customers,” Cullen said. “Penske Truck Leasing has long been a trusted advisor with fleet operators and Penske Energy will follow the same collaborative, customer-focused approach to solving customer infrastructure challenges.”

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.
