“While we only make up a small portion of Governor Brown’s vision to put 1.5 million zero emission vehicles on California’s roads, state government should lead by example and DGS is excited to be working with all state government agencies to be at the forefront of these efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lessen our dependency on fossil fuels.” [...]
The EV SmartFleets Fleet Procurement Analysis Tool equips users with decision-relevant information on the financial viability and environmental impact of light-duty vehicle fleet procurements and can evaluate a variety of procurement ownership structures, vehicle types, and procurement scenarios. The tool is highly flexible and compares procurements side-by-side on a cost-per-mile basis and provides an analysis of cash flows and location-specific [...]
This tool’s simple spreadsheet inputs allow fleet managers to estimate petroleum use, greenhouse gas emissions, air pollutant emissions, and cost of ownership of light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles. A version of the spreadsheet that has been edited to allow users in BC to access and use the tool is available for download by clicking the link below. If you are using [...]
