Standard Compliance for State and Alternative Fuel Provider Fleets

Through Standard Compliance, covered fleets may meet their Energy Policy Act (EPAct) requirements annually using one or more ways:

Covered state fleets also may meet their requirements by partnering with private, municipal, or local governments, or with other non-covered fleets and creating a plan that allows the covered state fleets included in the plan to meet their requirements by sharing their AFV-acquisition obligations. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) must approve the plan before fleets implement it.


Covered fleets must submit a report to DOE by December 31 after each model year to document compliance with EPAct requirements.


Covered fleets may apply for exemptions from their requirements.
