US Forest Service

October 2011


Energy Challenge: Cost and National Security

Mandates for Change

Present Situation

  • US oil demand is 19.15 MBPD and 2/3 is used for transportation

  • US spends $1B per day importing oil

  • 5 billion gallons of fuel used in military operations in 2010 ($13.2B)

  • 13.4 M gallons used by USFS ($35M)

  • The DOD has over 200,000 non-tactical, fossil fuel burning vehicles in their fleet

  • USFS has over 20,000 vehicles in their fleet

  • Goal: Reduce US oil imports by 33% by 2025

  • Reduce Fed Govt energy use by 30% by 2015

    • Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA 2007)

  • By 31 Dec 2015 all new Fed Govt vehicles need to use alternate fuel

    • Presidential Memo of 24 May 2011

  • DOE/DOD Net Zero Programs

  • 2% annual fuel demand decrease

  • 20% decrease in fuel usage 2005-2015


The need for Electric Utility Vehicles

  • To reduce cost and Fossil Fuel Dependence “One Size Fits All” is no longer practical

    • Fossil Fuel Fleet operating costs are usually 70-80% higher than electric vehicles

  • A large number of non-Tactical vehicles in the Federal Fleet are of the light duty (LD) truck category or smaller

    • Installation management

    • Facility and utility maintenance

    • Airfield maintenance and management personnel

  • Most rarely travel more than 50 miles per day and rarely need to go over 25mph

    • Facility campuses

    • Flightlines

    • Military installations


  • The need for Electric Utility Vehicles

    • The US Forest Service has over 20,000 vehicles

      • Includes 11,100 vehicles in the pickup/utility vehicle category

  • The USFS is under a number of mandates including:

    • 2% annual reduction in fuel demand

    • 20% total reduction in fuel demand from 2005 to 2015

      • USFS is not on track to meet this mandate

    • Greenhouse gas reduction plan by agency for 2020

    • Use of PHEV when life cycle costs show equivalent values

  • Electric powered utility vehicles can help the US Forest Service meet these mandates and more importantly reduce operating costs for a portion of the USFS pickup/utility vehicle fleet.


  • The e-ride Solution

    • Proven Performance – 1500 already in service

    • Fully American Made – superior quality

      • Not just a golf cart with options

  • Durable – Successful in all climates from the Antarctic to the Tropics

    • McMurdo Station in Antarctica

    • Kwajalein Island

  • Easy to Maintain

    • Direct Drive with minimal moving parts

    • Proprietary “easy use” Battery Maintenance System

  • “They’re roomy enough to hold supplies for a full day’s work are easy for my workers to operate and are safe to drive”– Wisc State Park Superintendent


    The e-ride Solution

    • Cost effective and affordable

      • Less expensive than a small pickup

  • Versatile – multiple options and models available

  • Drive down cost, reduce energy usage and help meet Federal and DOD mandates and requirements

    • Less than 5 cents per mile to operate

    • 70-80% less expensive than similar fossil fuel powered vehicles


  • The e-ride Rechargable Solution

    • e-ride vehicles are available with a solar recharging option

      • 400 watt PV system

      • Recharge system can provide up to 15 miles per day

      • Price is about $3000 additional per vehicle

      • Some users never need to plug in the vehicle in the “grid” and cost less than 5 cents per mile to operate

      • 70-80% less expensive than similar fossil fuel powered vehicles

      • 115/120 volt service option as an outlet for power tools and devices


    The e-ride Solution – Current Customers

    • Multiple DoD and Govt Sites

    • Antarctic Research Facility

    • Multiple Major Universities

    • Commercial Industries

    • Large US Aircraft Manufacturer

    • Designated a viable replacement for for US Post Office Long Life Delivery Vehicles

    “In the winter when our gas-powered vehicles won’t start, we use our E-Ride vehicles instead, in specific applications. They always start right up regardless of the temps. In fact, they’re parked outside every night—no garage—and they start just fine” – University of Wisconsin, Madison


    e-ride – The Vehicle

    • 40-50 mile range

    • Weight and capability of light duty truck

    • Plug in to standard 120V outlet

    • Quick Recharge Option

    • Proprietary Battery Maintenance System

    • Life Expectancy – 20 Years

    • Corrosion Resistant – Aluminum Chassis

    • Licensable and safe for on street driving

    • Solar Panel Option for extended range

    Battery positioning: ease of maintenance and efficient cabling

    With Solar Panel


    Antarctic/Cold Weather Success

    • Location: McMurdo Research Station/University of Wisconsin

    • Customer:National Renewable Energy Laboratory/Raytheon Polar Services/University of Wisc

    • Need: Easily Deployable, Non-Fossil Fuel Burning Vehicles with cold weather durability and capability.

    • Results

    • Logging 140 miles per month in Antarctic Conditions with no issues

    • “In the winter when our gas-powered vehicles won’t start, we use our E-Ride vehicles instead, in specific applications. They always start right up regardless of the temps. In fact, they’re parked outside every night—no garage—and they start just fine” –Univ of Wisconsin

    • RFQ for additional vehicles to replace gas vehicles

    Easily Deployed


    US Post Office Validation

    • Need: Reduce Fossil Fuel usage and Fleet Lifecycle Costs

    • Results:Use of e-ride vehicles will cost 90¢ per mile less than current vehicle fleet. In addition, e-ride purchase costs $7000 less per vehicle

    • Outcome: e-ride vehicle life cycle costs are 1/3 the cost of current vehicle fleet

    • Years

    Dollars
