3 Fleet Services Fleet Services ensures vehicle reliant City services meet their commitment to residents by tendering, acquiring, disposing, and maintaining the fleet in a cost effective and efficient manner. Current fleet of vehicles 400 units Annual Fuel Budget - $1.0 million dollars (about 20% of total operating costs) City Fleet Emissions = 38% of 2009 Corporate GHG in tonnes Awarded Silver Status from E3 Fleet (energy, efficiency & excellence)

5 Council Strategic Framework Green Fleet The Green Fleet Strategic Plan is aligned with and supports City Council s Strategies and Policies, Core Focus Areas, and the Corporate Work Plan by: Implementation of the Sustainable Procurement Policy (2010); Focus on the Core Focus Area to Protect our Air, Water, and Land (City Council Strategic Plan); Alignment with Environmental Policy Statement (mypg); Focus on policy directions relative to clean air, green practices, green energy, and reducing carbon emissions and; Establishment of key progress targets relative to emissions and corporate initiatives.

6 Corporate Work Plan Green Fleet Key Progress Targets established (3 years) to achieve City Council s Strategic Plan Continue enrollment in E3 Fleet Management Program (Energy, Efficiency, and Excellence) Implement action plans prescribed in the Green Fleet Strategic Plan Achieve Gold Status E3 Fleet Focus on fleet emission reductions to support Carbon Neutral Strategic Plan Continue examination of technology and systems to reduce fleet carbon footprint

7 What is a Green Fleet? Focus on two overarching goals: Optimize the efficiency of vehicles and equipment, resulting in decreased fuel consumption and exhaust emissions and; Maximize the use of alternative fuels and/or technologies within the financial capabilities of the organization.

8 Green Fleet Strategic Plan Purpose: Develop formal framework to achieve GHG emission reductions by implementing initiatives from two (2) streams: Fleet Purchasing Right sizing, life cycle costing, alternative technologies (battery, hybrid, electric, propane); Operation of the equipment - reduced idling, route management, preventative maintenance, fuel use, and driver safety. Result A three year (2011 to 2013) plan and associated action plans for achieving the corporate green fleet objectives.

9 Green Fleet Strategic Plan Providing the context and framework for a long term approach to a green fleet. Working towards achieving Gold E3 Fleet Status from the Fraser Basin Council. Assessing the costs and benefits of fleet purchases based on life cycle costing. Establishing the groundwork for our green fleet strategy to obtain organizational buy-in towards the Plan. Developing guiding policies, procedures, and strategies supporting action plans.

10 Sustainable Procurement Council approved Sustainable Procurement Policy Includes a process to acquire goods and services in a way that gives preference to suppliers that generate positive financial, social, and environmental outcomes Key focus areas of Sustainable Procurement are: - Green Products Chemicals - Office Products - Green Fleet - Energy Efficiency

11 Key Strategies to Support Green Fleet Create and implement organizational wide communications and training plan to focus on Green Fleet Implement Driver Efficiency Training Program to improve driver safety, fuel efficiency, safety technique, and emission reductions Implement systems to measure idling times on City fleet to support reduction of fuel use and emissions Implement energy efficient vehicle purchasing strategies (e.g. electric vehicles and propane conversions) Examine alternative fuels (e.g. propane) Optimize use of assets through right sizing and route management assessment and monitoring

12 Current Successes to Support Plan Implementation of a Sustainable Procurement Policy Purchase of Hybrid vehicles in 2009 City Idling Policy approved by City Council along with Idling Guidelines for staff and contractors to the City Tire Management Program implemented that regularly measures tire pressure on City vehicles resulting in lower fuel use Implementation of Fleet Preventative Maintenance Program Pilot project to measure and monitor idling times

13 2012 Action Plans Community Partnership 100% Electric Vehicle Potential partnerships with UNBC, Regional District, City of Prince George, and Northern Health Authority Objective Investigate a community driven approach to joint cost-sharing for an electric vehicle Goal - Develop community awareness on the benefits of electric vehicles

14 2012 Action Plans Propane Fuel Conversion Program Pilot Project in 2012 Five (5) city vehicles. Significant reductions in GHG emissions and fleet operating costs. Propane operated vehicles produce much less GHG compared to gas engines and the cost of propane is much lower. Project payback on conversion costs ($5000/unit) is about 14 months. Goal - Examine and consider if program should be enhanced in 2013.

15 2012 Action Plans COBI (Computer on Board Information) Install small on board computer in 40 city vehicles to measure and report on idling time. Compare idling times against baseline data. Goal is to focus on equipment that is operating above average idling time in order to reduce fuel use and emissions. Target is to reduce fuel use by 10% by 2013.

16 Idling Review Fleet Idling Baseline Review Comparative Data Short Idles - 2 min or less Medium Idle (2-5 minutes) Long Idle - over 5 minutes Driver 1 Driver 2 Driver 3 Driver 4 Driver 5 Average
