Department of State
Fleet AFV Program Report for Fiscal Year 2011
January 9, 2012

This report summarizes the U.S. Department of State (DOS) fiscal year (FY) 2011 performance in meeting the requirements of: Executive Order (EO) 13423, Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management; the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPAct; 42 US Code 13211-13219) as amended by the Energy Conservation Reauthorization Act of 1998 (ECRA; Public Law 105-388) and the EPAct of 2005 (Public Law 109-58); the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA; Public Law 110-140) of 2007 (Section 141), and the Federal Management Regulation -- Vehicle Management (41 CFR part 102-34).

Exhibit 1 summarizes DOS progress in meeting the EO and EPAct requirements. Appendices A, B and C reflect DOS vehicle acquisitions (for FYs 2011 to 2014), fuel consumption, and Executive Fleet data, respectively. Appendix D contains a glossary of acronyms and terms used in this report.

EPAct 1992

Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) acquisitions

75 percent of the 68 covered1 fleet vehicle acquisitions must be AFVs.

Accumulated 69 AFV credits (101 percent of covered acquisitions).

COMPLIANT

EO 13423

Reduce annual covered petroleum consumption

Reduce petroleum consumption of covered2 vehicles by two percent annually by end of FY 2015 from FY 2005 baseline of 279,127 gasoline gallon equivalents (GGEs).

Consumed 235,953 GGEs, a decrease of 15 percent from baseline (exceeding the target of a twelve percent decrease (i.e., 245,631 GGEs) by end of FY 2011).

COMPLIANT

EO 13423

Increase annual alternative fuel (AF) consumption

Equal or exceed the FY 2011 AF usage target of 50,454 GGEs, based on a compounded 10 percent annual rate of increase over the FY 2005 baseline of 28,480 GGEs.

Used 24,010 GGEs, which is 48 percent of the FY 2011 target and is about 5,000 less than used in FY2010.

NON-COMPLIANT

EPAct 2005, Sect. 701

Operate all dual-fuel non-waived AFVs on AF

AF use must comprise 95 percent or more of fuel used in non-waived, non-law enforcement (non-LE) dual-fuel AFVs.

Actual usage is estimated to be about 31 percent.

NON-COMPLIANT

41 C.F.R. 102-34.50; Presidential Memo 5/24/2011

Vehicles used for Executive Fleet limited in size to achieve fuel efficiency

Executive fleet vehicles should be midsize or smaller sedans, except where larger ones are essential. Any larger vehicles must be reported on agency website.

1 of 20 Executive Fleet Vehicles is a midsize or smaller sedan. Appendix C is a report of those EFVs.

NON-COMPLIANT

1By definition, the term ―covered‖ relative to vehicle acquisitions includes all domestic non-law enforcement (non-LE), light-duty (LD) vehicles operated in a metropolitan statistical area (MSA) and acquired by lease or purchase in FY 2011.

2 By definition, the term ―covered‖ relative to petroleum fuel reduction includes all domestic, non-LE vehicles of any weight and operating in or out of an MSA.

EPAct AFV Acquisition Compliance

DOS exceeded EPAct AFV acquisition requirements in FY 2011 as follows:

  • DOS acquired 68 EPAct-covered (domestic, non-LE, light-duty [LD]) vehicles, as shown in Appendix A.
  • DOS accumulated 69 AFV credits through acquisition of 69 non-law enforcement AFVs, of which 63 were LD (including 6 hybrid electric vehicles) and 6 were medium duty (MD).
  • The resulting overall EPAct compliance percentage was 101 percent (69 AFV credits/68 EPAct-covered vehicles).

AFV Acquisitions

DOS has successfully met the EPAct requirement every year (see Exhibit 2), as reflected in the Federal Automotive Statistical Tool (FAST), due to DOS’s general policy of acquiring AFVs for all covered vehicle requirements as long as AFVs meeting operational requirements are available from the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). DOS’s amount of AFV credits was substantially smaller than in past years because starting in FY 2010 AFV credits were no longer awarded for law enforcement (exempt) AFV acquisitions.

Exhibit 2. EPAct AFV Requirements vs. AFV Acquisitions + Credits
Date: 02/09/2012 Description: Exhibit 2. EPAct AFV Requirements vs. AFV Acquisitions + Credits - State Dept Image

Appendix A contains AFV acquisition details, including FAST data for the numbers and types of LD vehicles that DOS leased or purchased in FY 2011, as well as the planned and projected acquisitions for FYs 2012 and 2013, respectively.

FY 2012 Planned and FY 2013 Projected Acquisitions

DOS plans to continue its policy of acquiring AFVs exclusively for its non-exempt fleet except where operational requirements make that impractical or where it is expected to be infeasible to fuel with the AF.

  • For FY 2012, DOS expects to have 60 EPAct-covered vehicle acquisitions. AFV credits will consist of 52 LD and 3 MD AFVs. The projected EPAct percentage for FY 2012 is 92 percent (52+3=55 AFV credits/60), exceeding the EPAct requirement of 75 percent.
  • For FY 2013, DOS expects to have 40 EPAct-covered vehicle acquisitions. AFV credits will consist of 41 LD and 2 MD AFVs. The projected EPAct percentage for FY 2013 is 108 percent (41+2=43 AFV credits/40), exceeding the EPAct requirement of 75 percent.

EO 13423 – Compliance with Petroleum Use Reduction and AF Use Increase

In FY 2011 DOS continued to pursue the petroleum reduction targets specified in EO 13423 (signed January 24, 2007), which calls for each federal agency to:

  • Reduce vehicular petroleum consumption (for domestic, non-LE vehicles of any weight and operating in or out of an MSA) by two percent annually through FY 2015 (compared to the FY 2005 usage, which is referred to as the FY 2005 baseline).
  • Increase vehicular non-petroleum based fuel (i.e., alternative fuel) consumption by 10 percent compounded annually.

Reducing Covered Petroleum Consumption

DOS’s covered petroleum fuel consumption in FY 2011 was 235,953 GGEs, a 15 percent reduction from the FY 2005 baseline of 279,127 GGEs. This total is below the twelve percent reduction (two percent per year for six years—FY2005 to FY 2011) target for 2011. Consequently, DOS was fully compliant with the petroleum use reduction requirement in FY 2011.

Increasing Annual AF Consumption

EO 13423 requires each Federal agency to increase annual AF consumption by 10 percent per year (compounded annually) through the end of FY 2015, based on an FY 2005 baseline. The FY 2005 baseline for DOS is 28,480 GGEs, so the target for FY 2011 was 50,454 GGEs. DOS is not compliant with this requirement due to consuming only 48 percent of the target. The FY 2011 usage of AFs (24,010 GGEs) was somewhat lower than the amount used in the previous year (FY 2010) due to less CNG and B20 usage. Limitations to increasing AF use are detailed below.

  • CNG Use: DOS is now operating 11 compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles (3 CNG bi-fuel and 8 CNG dedicated), down from 16 in FY 2010, due to the limited availability of CNG vehicles from the OEMs. Moreover, the commercial CNG refueling infrastructure for these vehicles is insufficient, with only one source (the Pentagon Navy Exchange [NEX] station) having been convenient for daily DOS use, and even that station has since been closed (on October 28, 2011). There are two backup sources for CNG refueling: the Washington Navy Yard and the Arlington Transit (ART) site in Shirlington, VA, but these are not convenient to the location where the vehicles are garaged and primarily operated. Because of these factors, CNG fuel consumption decreased 28 percent from the FY 2010 level.
  • E85 Use: The amount of E85 (a fuel blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline) that is reported in FAST for FY 2011 is about the same as in FY 2010. Accurately measuring AF usage continues to be difficult due to commercial fuel station fuel-type coding problems in the fuel transactions data. Because E85 fuel is often incorrectly coded (either as a petroleum fuel or a non-fuel purchase), it is necessary to correct some transaction data based on the fuel available at the station and the fuel type of the vehicle for which the fuel was purchased.
  • Biodiesel Use: There was only one biodiesel station (the NEX) convenient for use by DOS’s diesel vehicles, which make up 5.5% of DOS’s domestic fleet, to obtain B20. Use of that station decreased during the year, due to decreased utilization of diesel buses when some shuttle routes were contracted out as the result of driver shortages. Other sources of B20 are being sought.

DOS took a number of steps to increase the availability and use of AFs in FY 2011:

  • DOS contacted various entities to develop/promote AF availability, discussed E85 infrastructure development and availability with the NEX and Georgetown Sunoco (formerly Chevron) station managers, discussed with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority the possibility of refueling DOS CNG vehicles at the Clark Street station near the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, and sought assistance from the National Biodiesel Board with installing another B20 source in the Washington, DC area.
  • Informed/reminded AFV custodians that DOS is required by EO 13423 to increase annual usage of AFs and by the EPAct (Section 701) to use AFs in AFVs when an AFV is garaged/parked within five miles or 15 minutes of an AF station.
  • Provided the Alternative Fuel Station Locator web site address to AFV custodians and other DOS employees and informed them of the location of the closest AF stations.
  • Monitored fuel usage data and notified AFV custodians and their supervisors, as needed, of “missed opportunities” when FFVs were refueled with gasoline instead of reasonably-available E85.

EPACT 2005, Section 701 - Operating Dual-fuel AFVs on AFs

EPAct 2005, Section 701 requires that dual-fuel AFVs (e.g., AFVs that can run equally well on gasoline or an AF) use AF exclusively unless the AF is (1) not reasonably available (neither within a 15-minute drive nor five miles from garaged location) or (2) unreasonably expensive (costs more per gallon than gasoline at the same station). LE vehicles are exempt from this requirement. Federal agencies can request a waiver (annually via FAST by June 30) for each non-exempt, dual-fuel AFV for which the distance, time, and/or cost exceed these criteria.

Since the waiver process began in 2007, the number of non-exempt, dual-fuel AFVs has increased as shown in Exhibit 4, but this has also resulted in a need for more waivers.

Nevertheless, AF usage in DOS AFVs, which is estimated to be about 31 percent in FY 2011, has not met DOS expectations and targets. DOS is one of three fleets that will pilot a DOE-sponsored software program that will make use of geographic information system (GIS) software to analyze fuel transaction data and AF station location data to ascertain where specific AFVs could be using more AF.

As mentioned earlier, fuel coding problems substantially impact the reliability of the fuel transaction data. While the data is available for agencies to download (from GSA and from the Voyager fuel card databases), it is deficient in accurately identifying the fuel purchased because of software problems at the point of sale and problems in the transmission of data from the point of sale to the credit card transaction databases.

EISA Section 141 – Greenhouse Gas Reporting in FAST

The Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007 (Section 141) prohibits Federal agencies from acquiring LD vehicles and MD passenger vehicles that are not considered “low greenhouse gas emitting vehicles” (LGHGEVs). Beginning with the submission of the FY 2010 FAST data, Federal agencies are required to report whether each of the current year acquisitions met this criteria, and if not, what allowable exceptions (“functional needs” or “alternative measures” as defined in Section 141) or circumstances applied. DOS provided guidance to its subfleets concerning the procedures for requesting the exceptions for non-LGHGEV acquisitions. The subfleets reported the FY 2011 acquisitions by exceptions category as required in FAST. Of the applicable FY 2011 acquisitions reported by the subfleets in FAST, which excludes overseas vehicles and those with “functional needs” exceptions, 10 vehicles were LGHGEVs and 6 were not and are being processed for “alternative measures exception” approval. DOS expects to increase the numbers of LGHGEV acquisitions as more become available from the OEMs and the General Services Administration (GSA).

Executive Fleet Reporting

The Presidential Memorandum on “Federal Fleet Performance” signed May 24, 2011 created a new requirement for reporting executive fleet vehicles (EFVs) and their sizes on the agency web site. The memorandum states: “Pursuant to motor vehicle management regulations, set forth at 41 C.F.R. 102-34.50, executive fleets are required to achieve maximum fuel efficiency; be limited in motor vehicle body size, engine size, and optional equipment to what is essential to meet agency mission; and be midsize or smaller sedans, except where larger sedans are essential to the agency mission. Within 180 days of the date of this memorandum, any executive fleet vehicles that are larger than a midsize sedan or do not comply with alternative fueled vehicle requirements must be disclosed on agency websites.”

Therefore, in FAST, the current inventory had to include an indicator for each vehicle that is part of the agency's executive fleet (those vehicles used primarily for the transport of Secretaries and Heads of Agencies, Senior Executive Service [SES] employees, and general officers). The resulting Executive Fleet report (by vehicle type) is included in Appendix C. Since 19 of the current 20 EFVs are not compliant with this new requirement due to being older model years and larger than mid-size sedans, DOS expects to achieve a higher compliance rate in the future as these vehicles are replaced. While not applicable to FY11, fourteen of the large sedans have been replaced with mid-size sedans.

Conclusion

DOS remains fully committed to compliance with EPAct and EO requirements. With its policy of exclusively acquiring AFVs for its non-exempt fleet, except where operational requirements make such acquisitions impractical, DOS expects to continue its record of meeting or exceeding the 75 percent EPAct percentage for the foreseeable future. DOS will also continue acquiring LGHGEVs as OEMs provide more makes and models that meet operational requirements.

A lack of adequate commercial AF infrastructure and the recent closing of the NEX continue to hinder AF refueling, but DOS endeavors to keep its waiver requests to a minimum, to monitor the expansion of commercial AF infrastructure, and to strengthen its efforts to increase driver awareness to use AF whenever the distance/cost criteria are met.
