Fleet Procurement Analysis Tool

Fleet Procurement Analysis Tool 2017-12-15T11:57:32+00:00

Project Description

The Fleet Procurement Analysis Tool equips users with decision-relevant information on the financial viability and environmental impact of light-duty vehicle fleet procurements. The Microsoft Excel-based tool can evaluate a variety of procurement ownership structures, vehicle types, and procurement scenarios. The tool compares procurements side-by-side on a cost-per-mile basis and provides an analysis of cash flows and location-specific lifecycle emissions. The tool is highly flexible, supports customizable sensitivity variables, and produces user-friendly results summaries.

The tool was built as part of EV Smart Fleets, an initiative to implement a multi-state aggregated electric vehicle procurement for public fleets. EV Smart Fleets seeks to accelerate electric vehicle adoption by public fleets, lower the purchase price of electric vehicles for public fleets, and increase access to a wider range of electric vehicle models. The Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program has provided funding for this effort as part of their work with nearly 100 coalitions nationwide to decrease the use of petroleum in transportation.
