Smarter Fleets – Electric Vehicles in Local Government


  What is the Program?

The Smarter Fleets Program supported 10 Tasmanian councils to prepare to introduce electric vehicles into their fleets. The Program provided tailored information and analysis of the participating councils' existing fleets to calculate the environmental benefits and cost reductions that electric vehicles can offer.

Participating fleets received tailored advice identifying electric vehicle models and charging infrastructure that meet each council’s needs. By partnering with electric vehicle and fleet experts, the Program encouraged sharing of technical expertise.

The Program ran from July 2018 to June 2019 as a partnership between the Tasmanian Government and Sustainable Living Tasmania and was funded by the Tasmanian Government.

Program outcomes

Resource guides will be developed to share the information and lessons learned through the Program with other Tasmanian fleets.

The Government is committed to supporting the uptake of electric vehicles in Tasmania, and to improving fleet efficiency, as part of Climate Action 21: Tasmania’s Climate Change Action Plan 2017-2021.
