In an effort to combat climate change, President Biden issued Executive Order 14008, which mandates that all federal agencies transition their fleets to zero-emission vehicles by 2050. We assisted Glacier National Park in developing a phased approach to this transition. We assessed the Park’s fleet needs, examined current and projected zero emission technology, identified potential sources of funding, explored other government entities that had converted their fleet to zero emission vehicles, and developed recommendations. We proposed four scenarios for phased implementation timelines. Each scenario differed in amount and timeline of funding and technological advancements and recognized financial, technological, infrastructure, and energy uncertainties.
