New report captures local authorities' experiences of clean fleet procurement

By Lewis Macdonald / Updated: 01 Aug 2014
The Clean Fleets project has produced a report for public bus procurers and transport operators which provides a comprehensive review of fuel and technology options for clean buses.
Titled Clean Buses - Experiences with Fuel and Technology Options, the report brings together the experiences of over 100 European public authorities and transport operators. It seeks to give a clear and in-depth analysis with examples of trials and demonstrations of using buses with a range of fuel and technology options and innovative bus solutions.

The report provides systematic assessment of 17 different fuel and technology options covering environmental performance, market development, costs, and other practical aspects related to the buses described. Over 40 experts including Clean Fleets project partners, public transport operators, public authorities, research institutions, transport associations and consultants provided input for the report.

Supporting the work of professionals in the field of procurement is a key aim of the report. Particular emphasis has been placed on the individual experiences of cities, local authorities and public transport operators. The Clean Fleets project assists public authorities and fleet operators with the implementation of the Clean Vehicles Directive and the procurement or leasing of clean and energy-efficient vehicles.
