Project Description

The Pennsylvania State University is soliciting proposals for the creation of a Zero Emissions Fleet Plan for the University Park Campus.

Penn State owns and operates more than 3,100 motorized vehicles across the University Park campus. These vehicles are either managed through their lifecycle by the Transportation Services Department or by individual departments and units. The vehicle types range from small passenger vehicles to heavy specialized equipment. Notably, Penn State has already undertaken initiatives to reduce fleet emissions, including the incorporation of electric vehicles, clean fuel vehicles, and alternative-fueled vehicles.

Penn State is committed to a 100% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2035. To support this goal, Penn State is exploring the implementation of a zero-emission fleet plan.

For the scope of this plan, the primary focus is on the passenger and light-duty vehicles, considering their feasibility and immediate impact due to the high volume and potential emission reductions.
