The Brief The key requirement of Brimbank Council’s Fleet Transition Plan (FTP) was to guide a transition of Council’s fleet to zero emissions technologies by providing a business case for the transition of the Council’s vehicles to zero emissions by 2030, and sooner where possible. This fleet included more than 300 Waste Collection, Commercial Trucks, Passenger vehicles, Buses, Utes and Vans.
The Approach Evenergi developed a clear methodology for delivery of the Fleet Transition Plan based on a combination of direct project experience, interviews with hundreds of Fleet Managers and feedback from Institute of Public Works and Engineering (IPWEA) and the Australian Fleet Management Association (AFMA). Core deliverable steps in this process included:

  • Project background/preparation
  • Low-emission vehicle suitability analysis
  • Infrastructure analysis
  • Review of value-added services and co-benefits of project
  • Synthesis of data and provision of a detailed fleet transition plan
The Result Breakthrough findings show that full electrification across light and heavy fleets is viable by 2030. Evenergi delivered an FTP for Brimbank City Council to integrate the various technical and financial considerations required to successfully implement an accelerated transition to zero-emissions vehicles and infrastructure over the next 5-10 years and maximise the opportunities presented by the transition.

This enabled the Council to maximise the benefits of a planned move to 100% renewable electricity in its operations by 2021 as part of a collaborative power purchase agreement.

Client feedback was that it was the best consulting report they had ever seen.
