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

In October 2012 Western Michigan University partnered with the Michigan based Clean Energy Coalition in a two year program. WMU participated in a fleet assessment to identify alternative fuel replacement options and agreed to explore and potentially adopt university wide policy changes that would establish alternative fuel vehicle procurement/replacement practices. At this time and whenever possible, Western Michigan University will purchase vehicles that have the capability of using an alternative fuel, hybrid technology or electric drive technology while balancing sustainable technologies with cost effective practices.
