Alternative Fuels Track

Alternative Fuels

It seems more government agencies are declaring clean fleet initiatives every day. How should a fleet manager approach electrification and other alt-fuels, or how can they improve the plans they already have in place? Learn from those already implementing alt-fuel initiatives, from the first steps to infrastructure to the lessons they learned after the experience.

This track is designed for those with an interest in alternative fuels and who need practical advice from fleet managers who’ve been there.

Select Alternative Fuels Track Sessions

Tuesday, May 19, 2020

4:15 PM - 5:15 PM

Municipalities and state fleets often set fleet cleaning goals, and it’s up to the fleet manager to implement them. Learn about San Diego County’s roadmap to 500 electric vehicles (EVs) by 2027, its challenges and solutions in reaching this goal, how it set realistic year-over-year increments for conversion, and how the county is preparing charging infrastructure for its growing EV fleet.

Presenters: Bradley Northup, Fleet Manager, City of Carlsbad, CA; Charles Marchesano, Chief Departmental Operations, Energy & Sustainability, County of San Diego, CA; John Manring, Chief Departmental Operations, Fleet Management, County of San Diego, CA

Wednesday, May 20, 2020

9:30 AM - 10:30 AM

Although many public agencies set their sights on electrification when it comes to sustainability initiatives, there are more alternative fuels to choose from. Learn proven sustainability strategies from fleet managers using different alternative fuels — including electric and hydrogen-powered vehicles, renewable diesel and renewable gasoline, natural gas, and heavy-duty EVs — what applications these are best used for, costs and implementation, and how to establish a compelling business case for your alt-fuel program.

Moderator: Mary Till, SaWatch

Presenters: Philip Saunders, Green Fleet Program Manager, City of Seattle, WA; Mark Stevens, Fleet Manager, City of Sacramento, CA
