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

In FY13 Emory reduced the number of gasoline powered vehicles in the fleet. We also replaced old vehicles with FLEX fuel vehicles, electric Low Speed Vehicles (LSV’s), and smaller, high MPG gasoline efficiency vehicles (e.g. Transit Connects). In FY14 we are working to do more right sizing and are looking at expanding alternative options for vehicle replacement.

The website URL where information about the institution's support for alternative fuel and power technology is available:

Emory is home to the “Cliff” shuttle system, used by Emory faculty, student, staff, and members of the public. Its shuttle buses are 100 percent alternatively fueled, with 100 percent of its fleet powered with biodiesel made from recycled cooking oil from Emory’s cafeterias and hospitals and other local used cooking oil.
