1 PROCURA Hitting the Road in Green Mode Local Renewables 2007 Freiburg, June 14, 2007 Marieke Reijalt Dissemination Coordinator

2 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA Project and Objective Procura is a General Action project of the Intelligent Energy for Europe programme of the Directorate General Transport and Energy. The project started the beginning of February 2006 and will last three years. The total budget is Euro PROCURA aims at contributing to the EU objective of 20% substitution of oil-based motor fuels by 2020, by overcoming market barriers for large-scale procurement of Alternative Fuel Vehicles (AFVs).

3 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA Problems and Solutions The problem lack of infrastructure (chicken-egg problem)lack of maintenance and repair facilities lack of knowledge of fleet owners and consumerslack of economics The solution lack of second-hand market. PROCURAs strategy consists of developing and testing models for centralised AFV procurement via: buyer pools (permitting centralised infrastructure and servicing);certification systems for AFVs. a focus on private fleet owners (e.g. Greenlease); the start-up development of second hand markets

4 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA The Target Groups Local authorities; Private fleet owners Regional and national agencies. Maintenance and repair shop Infrastructure developers Branch organisations (automotive) Automotive manufacturers The deliverables manuals developed in collaboration with, and to be applied by fleet owners in 5 pilots in the Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, Poland and Spain.; 200 Alternative fuelled vehicles, AFVs will be procured; 150 fleet scans will be carried out, 1500 relevant stakeholders will be involved in events

8 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA Workpackage progress: WP2: Manuals Current status: WP2 rounded off Three manuals delivered, Market barriers overview, Incentive systems overview (best practices) Some conclusions - Great deal of market information available – now integrated and customized - Great deal of incentives available – opportunity for procurement model - Limitations in availability AFVs (differences per country) - Chicken-egg problem prominent focus on fleets logical

9 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA Workpackage progress: WP3: Procurement Current status: Rounding off WP3 Economic and ecologic tool developed In dvt: Set up of a Certification system green vehicles In dvt: Greenlease concepts Some conclusions: Tool provides insight for fleet owners Procurement Models: Combinations of (i) type of fleet, (ii) type of fuel, (iii) incentive systems (compensation), (iv) 3 rd party involvement (ownership, exploitation) Certification is important, but requires great efforts GreenLease provides opportunities

10 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA Workpackage progress: WP3: Procurement Procurement models- example 1: Taxi company with >50 vehicles in fleet CNG option higher initial cost + lower fuel cost Financed by third party (ownership) Option: Incentive systems – particular lane usage. Procurement models- example 2: Large fleetowner: central operation, city logistics Biofuel interest – but higher costs Compensation through incentive systems: access to city centers + local subsidies Own tank station

11 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA Workpackage progress: WP4.1 Nijmegen Status: in progress Focus on CNG procurement: buses and cars (200 AFV) Municipality as partner Several workshops with relevant parties Fleet scans with interested fleet owners Some conclusions Condensed knowledge valuable (manuals) for municipalities and stakeholders Relevant to include complete supply chain: e.g. bus companies, end users, concession authority Integration on public tender process Municipality to regional level to increase leverage

12 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA Workpackage progress: WP4.2 Greenlease (Green)LEASE: A fixed long-term commitment to rent an asset, e.g. a vehicle Why is vehicle lease relevant for the AFV market penetration? Main market barriers become irrelevant when leasing those vehicles Full service lease contract, including maintenance & repairs Risk reduction for customer, with lease company providing the service Leasing cars indirectly stimulates the second hand market Both vehicles as infrastructure can be leased No initial capital expenditures (but higher lease costs) Vehicle availability increased through lease company Knowledge of incentives and technology

13 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA Workpackage progress: WP5: Lisbon Current status: In progress Municipality of Lisbon fleet 11 urban transport companies targeted + 3 municipal fleets First workshops with stakeholders held Some conclusions Market barriers large: vehicle availability + high costs of fuel No infrastructure available municipality takes the lead

14 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA Workpackage progress: WP6: Italy Current status: Focus on biofuels CNG is well integrated in Italy Florence is integrated as pilot Some conclusions Political difficulties Limited fleet owner interest High fuel prices and infrastructure availability (success CNG largely explained through lower fuel prices)

15 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA Workpackage progress: WP7: Poland Current status: In progress Focus on CNG buses > 20 bus operators were contacted 7 letters of intent for AFV procurement Seminars held with complete supply chain Some conclusions: Buses form an attractive AFV market Infra, volume, central logistics Interest in CNG for lower fuel prices

16 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA Workpackage progress: WP8: Valencia Current status: in progress Supply chain analysis Valencia region identification 200 stakeholders (leasing, fleetowners, car dealers, maintenance services etc) Focus on FFV and biofuels Spain is target market for Ford FFV First fleet scans performed Some conclusions: Local support OEMs of large influence (vehicle availability) Incentive systems as cost compensation method envisioned to be crucial

17 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA Workpackage progress: WP9 - Evaluation An evaluation of all pilots is taken into account at the end of the project Based on the evaluation a last version of manuals will be produced where necessary. Not applicable at this point.

18 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA Workpackage progress: WP10 Dissemination Current status: Up and Running Website set up Seminars organized in Brussels Participation in internationl events (mobility week, fleet forum, other EU projects (e.g. BEST), Green Purchasing Conference) Meetings with dissemination partners Set up of contact database Some conclusions Large interest to provide information on AFVs Many events Growing interest of end users – but large barriers

19 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA Conclusions PROCURA M16 - Despite growing interest, large barriers exist for large-scale AFV procurement - Cost of fuels - Vehicle availability limited - Chicken egg problem: infra-vehicle - Limited push and incentives - Limited environmental motivation Second order barriers: -2 nd hand market -repair&maintenance

20 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA Conclusions PROCURA M16 Possible strategies Tax exemption (e.g Germany-biodiesel, Sweden-ethanol, CNG-Italy) Large-scale procurement focus Buses, large fleets Cross-border (logistics companies) Supply-chain approach Incentive systems can compensate, but with limitations AFV-mandate for fleet owners Mandating a certain percentage for fleet owners Learn from US example

22 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA GREENLEASE Reconditioning & second-hand vehicle auctioning Label Fleet Analysis Maintenance & Repairs Fleet Management Green Vehicle Rental Ecodriving Greenlease Concept

23 This product is a result of the PROCURA project EIE/05/102/SI **12/06/2014 PROCURA Fuel saving measures which can be applied by any fleet owner & driver Reduction of: noise CO2 local air quality pollutants number of accidents BASIC ECODRIVING RULES Enhance driver awareness for energy consumption, e.g. no use of air conditioning as a fan Assure that tires have the correct pressure & possibly get low-rolling-resistance (LRR) replacement tires. Stick to moderate speed & drive foresighted to diminish unnecessary braking / sudden acceleration. Drive in high gear & shift soon into next gear to avoid a high engine speed Apply a fuel management programme, e.g. a fleet fuel card Eliminate superfluous weight, e.g. unnecessary things in the trunk 1 Switch of engine, when waiting at a traffic light / railway crossing / picking someone up 7 Schedule maintenance to increase fuel economy due to constant clean air filters, etc. Greenlease concept
