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 from 2016-2017 aimed at implementing a multi-state aggregated electric vehicle procurement for public fleets. The Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program provided funding for this effort as part of their work with nearly 100 coalitions nationwide to decrease the use of petroleum in transportation.
