Overview

The Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicles Data Center (AFDC, formerly known as the Alternative Fuels Data Center) provides a wide range of information and resources to enable the use of alternative fuels (as defined by the Energy Policy Act of 1992), in addition to other petroleum reduction options such as advanced vehicles, fuel blends, idle reduction, and fuel economy.[1]

This site is sponsored by the United States Department of Energy's Clean Cities initiative.

The EPA website gathers together a number of guidance documents covering various approaches to reducing emissions and energy use in the transporation sector. The site also gathers and provides guidance in the use of several tools that can be used to estimate the impacts of various approaches to transportation emissions reduction.

Highlights

Provides an overview of the the various transportation-related options available to community energy planners.
