Description

The purpose of this report is to describe the methodology and results obtained from a continuing DOE Office of Transportation Technologies (OTT) activity to estimate future effects of OTT projects on national energy use, petroleum consumption, criteria emissions, greenhouse gas emissions, and various measures of national income and employment. Assumptions are made about the future costs and characteristics of alternative vehicles and fuels. Models that take into account the value that vehicle buyers place on various vehicle characteristics are used to estimate the market penetration of new vehicle technologies. A different set of assumptions would yield results that are different ... continued below

Description

The purpose of this report is to describe the methodology and results obtained from a continuing DOE Office of Transportation Technologies (OTT) activity to estimate future effects of OTT projects on national energy use, petroleum consumption, criteria emissions, greenhouse gas emissions, and various measures of national income and employment. Assumptions are made about the future costs and characteristics of alternative vehicles and fuels. Models that take into account the value that vehicle buyers place on various vehicle characteristics are used to estimate the market penetration of new vehicle technologies. A different set of assumptions would yield results that are different from what is presented here. Analysis results quantify various benefits including: energy and petroleum reductions, carbon equivalent greenhouse gas emissions, criteria pollutant emissions reductions, and the associated economic impacts on the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and jobs. The scope of this report addresses light vehicles including passenger automobiles, Class 1 and 2 trucks, and heavy trucks (Classes 3 through 8). The time period spans the present through the year 2030. All energy savings start from baseline projections of transportation sector energy use obtained from the ''Annual Energy Outlook,'' issued annually by the US Department of Energy, Energy Information Administration (Ref. 1). This analysis is based on conventional vehicle fuel economy and purchase price as designated for the ''Large Car'' in the EIA Annual Energy Outlook, although the other characteristics of the large car and of the other vehicle types have been generated from other sources.
