In fiscal year 2004, DOE exceeded its EPAct requirements for the sixth consecutive year. As a result of its AFV acquisitions and biodiesel fuel use, DOE in fiscal year 2004 achieved a 99 percent compliance rate, which is 24 percentage points higher than the 75 percent AFV requirement. DOE also expects to exceed its EPAct requirements in fiscal years 2005 and 2006. In addition to emphasizing compliance with EPAct, E.O. 13149 set a goal for each agency to reduce vehicular petroleum consumption by 20 percent by the end of fiscal year 2005, compared to fiscal year 1999 levels. E.O. 13149 specifies that each agency should ADDRESSES: improve the fuel efficiency of its new conventional light-duty vehicles and increase the use of alternative fuels in its AFVs. In fiscal year 2004, 21 percent of the fuel used in DOE’s AFVs was alternative fuel and DOE achieved a 2.1 mile per gallon increase in fuel economy in its conventional light-duty vehicles as compared to fiscal year 1999. This combined with EPAct AFV acquisitions, led to a reduction in petroleum consumption of 1.8 percent compared to fiscal year 1999. Pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 13218, each covered agency, including DOE, must report its annual acquisitions of alternative fuel vehicles to Congress, as required.
