Clean Fleet Assessment
Collaborating with government, non-profits and businesses, the N.C. Clean Energy Technology Center’s Clean Transportation team strives to improve air quality and energy security by diversifying fuel supplies and promoting economic development that utilizes local resources and cleaner technologies. Clean Transportation program staff can assist local government in evaluating options and technologies relating to electric vehicles, hybrids and plug-in hybrids, biodiesel, ethanol, natural gas, propane, diesel retrofits and idle reduction. In addition to surveying existing practice and fuel usage, fleet assessments include identification of best practices and policies to maximize the cost and emissions reduction benefits of petroleum displacement.
You can use the tools from our Alternative Fuels Implementation Toolkit to do your own fleet assessment. From the toolkit, you can research different possible vehicle options to understand the different costs and benefits, and use the vehicle cost calculators to understand the costs of different options you are considering. You should also consider Developing a Fleet Policy to institutionalize these priorities going forward. Center staff can help you conduct a fleet assessment or write a fleet policy.
