ANALYZING OPPORTUNITIES FOR ENERGY CONSERVATION IN MUNICIPAL FLEET MANAGEMENT: SERVICE DELIVERY PATTERNS, EQUIPMENT, SUPPLY, OPERATIONS, AND MAINTENANCE. INFORMATION BULLETIN OF THE ENERGY TASK FORCE OF THE URBAN CONSORTIUM

Vehicle fleet management as a five-step process is portrayed and the multiple energy conservation opportunities within each step are examined. The five steps described are, configuration of service area and service delivery patterns, equipping the fleet, operating the fleet, maintaining the fleet, and supplying the fleet with fuel. A systems approach to decision making about municipal fleets is outlined. Management options, control techniques, and devices are suggested for each of the five steps. Reference is made to analytic tools which will assist in deliberating options at each of these steps. These tools are presented in a list. Four concise case studies of jurisdictions which are taking deliberate steps to reduce fuel use are presented. Key opportunities for fuel conservation are then summarized, followed by a selected bibliography, and listing of reference materials and additional resources. (ERA citation 06:022226)
