Improving the energy efficiency of fleets can be done in many ways.

The FLEAT toolbox provides effective measures and know-how to help fleet owners improve the energy efficiency of their fleet in 3 fields :
  • improve energy efficiency and environmental performance of the vehicle fleet
  • encourage energy efficient use of vehicles through ecodriving principles
  • support energy efficient use of the fleet through mobility management
Today's automotive engineering offers numerous ways of improving energy efficiency and environmental impact of your fleet's vehicles:alternative fuels and vehicles, downsized engines and diesel particulate filters to name a few. Chosing the best vehicle can have a number of benefits
  • a positive effect on the energy consumption costs of your fleet. E.g. integrating downsizing in your car policy will result in lower purchase/lease costs, and will result in lower fuel costs
  • a positive effect on the company image by implementing energy efficient and environmental friendly vehicles (e.g. noise reduction of trucks in city centres through the use of CNG or hybrid technology)
Energy efficient use of vehicles is focused mainly on ecodriving principles. These principles apply to both light and heavy duty vehicles. The benefits can be various:
  • savings in fuel costs by implementing energy efficient use of vehicles, e.g. up to 10% lower fuel costs through ecodriving;
  • savings in maintenance costs of the vehicles
  • safety benefits : an energy efficient driving style also has a positive effect on road safety, resulting in lower costs related tot accidents and loss of time
  • reduced stress and improved driving comfort
Reducing mobility demand is an important instrument to reduce energy consumption and environmental impact of your fleet. The benefits of implementing mobility management actions include:
  • savings in mobility costs by managing your mobility demand, e.g. company travel plans leading to less required parking space and less company travel costs, or optimizing the logistics of your utility fleet
