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

In 2009, UVM Transportation and Parking Services (TPS) replaced their 9 diesel buses with buses powered with compressed natural gas (CNG). In 2017 TPS acquired the fleet's first electric plug-in cars: an all-electric Mitsubishi MiEV for enforcement staff and an all-electric Nissan Leaf as an employee-pool car. UVM has solidified its on-going effort to add electric, plug-in hybrid, and hybrid vehicles to the fleet and continues to right-size and downsize where possible with its by formalizing of a green fleet procurement.

In 2016, UVM TPS collaborated with Burlington Electric Department to install four dual-port level-2 electric vehicle charging stations across campus, and two level-1 stations in the Gutterson Garage. Since then, UVM TPS has installed six additional dual-port level-2 EV charging stations on campus. Today, there are 22 public charging ports on campus, 20 Level 2 ports, and 2 Level 1 ports. In addition, we have 4 Level 2 ports and 4 Level 1 ports available for fleet charging. In 2022, UVM completed an EVSE 10-Year Master Plan to coordinate an aggressive roll-out of EV stations across campus.
