To date, EAGA councils have made significant progress in reducing corporate emissions, particularly in buildings and facilities, however substantive reductions in fleet and plant emissions remain particularly challenging. Currently only a relatively small number of passenger vehicles, trucks and plant have transitioned to all electric.
This project seeks to address this by undertaking a holistic assessment the financial, social and environmental costs and benefits for fast-tracking the electrification of existing fleet and plant. This will a include a parallel review of the necessary charging infrastructure requirements to support the transition in each participating council.
EAGA has engaged the Institute for Sensible Transport (IST) to undertake the review and analysis. Project outputs will include:
- Individual transition plans for each council with accompany excel business case tool for ongoing in fleet management planning
- Regional summary, including high level findings, opportunities for joint procurement and key lessons for other councils
