Using a Joint Procurement Process to Increase ZEV Adoption Nationwide

The project will develop a multi-state zero emission vehicle (ZEV ) procurement process for state, county, and municipal fleets. Efforts will focus on convening procurement officials in interested states, engaging with national Clean Cities coalitions and similar organizations, and establishing a workgroup of government procurement experts to develop a multi-state model procurement contract that accommodates individual procurement requirements. The project will promote use of the model contract by public and private fleets with the help of an industry-focused advisory group and the existing West Coast Electric Fleets and ZEV Memorandum of Understanding state fleet initiatives.

Aggregated Alternative Technology Alliance

The Aggregated Alternative Technology Alliance (AATA) seeks to achieve nationwide economies of scale for alternative fuels and advanced vehicles. AATA plans to accomplish this through a coordinated strategy designed to increase deployment, increase knowledge, lower customer acquisition costs, support local economic development, and address potential challenges arising from large-scale procurement initiatives. AATA has assembled a team of national and regional partners with extended networks and relationships that can increase and aggregate the demand for alternative fuels and advanced vehicles. The AATA team will research and create bulk procurement templates to enable competitive pricing and lower up-front costs for alternative fuels and advanced vehicles. Five regional councils will lead fuel-neutral regional procurement efforts in multiple states nationwide.
