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

UVic has used a fleet of 100% electric powered gators (John Deer TRSTR) on campus for many years and when required, gators continue to be replaced with new electric versions. Three fully electric golf carts are also utilized by Campus Security for daily transport around campus. UVic has continued efforts to further electrify the campus fleet, and now has 14 Nissan Leafs utilized by Facilities Management for tool and trade transport. The UVic Sustainability Action Plan: Campus Operations 2020-2021 outlines further actions to be taken towards harmonizing fleet management with the Clean BC Plan goal of a 40% reduction in fleet emissions by 2030 (see page 13). Actions include:
- Investigating improved EV fleet electric charging infrastructure opportunities;
- Conduct an “E3 Fleet” energy savings and emissions reduction audit for fleet vehicles
- Establish a fleet purchasing policy or set of guidelines for low emission vehicles
- Conduct two pilot projects that address fleet functionality needs including:
o Electrify one fleet van
o Purchase and modify an equipment trailer for Nissan Leaf fleet vehicles
