IESVic and the Capital Regional District were jointly awarded the 2018 Climate & Energy Action Award in the Public Sector Collaboration category for the "CRD Zero Emissions Fleet Initiative" collaborative project led at UVic by Curran Crawford and Ned Djilali. The award is from the Community Energy Association and was presented at the Union of BC Municipalities Convention. The project is ongoing, and aimed at reducing GHG emissions in the CRD fleet and involves field trials and monitoring of fuel cell electric vehicles, battery electric vehicles and electric bikes. The project also includes the development of smart fleet analysis and optimization tools, together with considering disaster response implications of low emissions vehicle technologies.
