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.
The project aims to accelerate a broad market introduction of vehicles with higher energy and environmental standards and thereby reduce energy consumption, noise, CO2 and pollutant emissions.
To achieve these goals, Clean Fleets supports public authorities and fleet operators with tendering to achieve higher standards of energy and environmental performance in public road transport vehicles. This includes providing individual support with specific procurement actions and capacity building through trainings and exchange.
Clean Fleets will develop a guide on how to procure clean and energy-efficient vehicles in practice, following the Directive. The guide will be accompanied by a toolkit of resources, such as a modular training package, a life cycle costing tool, sample tenders and good practice examples.
Clean Fleets has kicked off in September 2012 and will run for three years. It is funded by the European Commission Intelligent Energy Europe Initiative
