Abstract: According to the Hamburger Klimaplan, 50% of all vehicles in public fleets in the city of Hamburg are to run on electricity by the year 2020. For state owned enterprises, a reduced percentage of 35% is expected (Bürgerschaft der Freien und Hansestadt Hamburg, Drucksache 21/2521, 8.12.15). The purpose of this study,which was conducted from November 2015 to June 2017, was to gather the currentstate and forecast the percentage of electric vehicles in the respective public fleets and to identify conditions and enablers, that would support reaching the targets of the Hamburger Klimaplan. The study covers both the public administration and the public companies in Hamburg, as well as in the metropolitan region. Relevant data was acquired with an extensive pre-processing and analysis of existing motor vehicle registration data, followed by an online questionnaire and a management tool to monitor and plan fleet electrification on single vehicle level. Finally, expert interviews were conducted with the respective units. The study covers more than 70% of all city-owned vehicles. Based on the results of the study, the authors present scenarios for the future development of the percentage of e-vehicles in the respective fleets, including the expected progress towards the given targets. Further findings confirm the feasibility of the targets set under certain preconditions, like availability of specific types of vehicles. Best practices of successful units are summarized and include e.g. active management involvement with regular reporting of the composition of the vehicle fleet.
