A brief description of the institution’s efforts to support alternative fuel and power technology in its motorized fleet:

- Each year, the Buildings & Grounds Dept. allocates a portion of its budget to replace the oldest and least fuel-efficient vehicles in its fleet with newer models with improved fuel economy, replacing over a dozen vehicles this way in since 2012.
-Since 2010, B&G has experimented with the purchase of (2) all-electric vans, (2) high-efficiency "mini" trucks, and (1) electric-hybrid shuttle bus.
- Since 2010, the Transportation Dept. has purchased (and subsequently replaced) four electric-hybrid sedans (Toyota Pruis) for its fleet, which are provided to other departments for short and long trips.
- In 2013, Bard installed its first electric charging station at the Alumni Center, and has since install (3) more stations spaced across campus.
