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

NYU’s central location in New York City offers access to one of the most comprehensive public transportation systems in the world. The small University-owned vehicle fleet supplements this extensive public infrastructure. With that in mind, NYU committed to achieving a 100% electric fleet in the NYU Resolution of the University Senate for Decarbonization, passed in April 2019.

To accomplish this, EV options are considered during every new vehicle procurement process. For situations where fully electric solutions do not currently exist or are not feasible, hybrid engine technology is sought. The University currently has numerous small fully-electric utility vehicles for campus maintenance purposes. Other electric vehicle efforts include installing 2 dual-vehicle charging stations on-campus for NYU vehicles and building residents.
