Welcome To AFLEET
The Department of Energy's Technology Integration Program has enlisted the expertise of Argonne to develop a tool to examine both the environmental and economic costs and benefits of alternative fuel and advanced vehicles (AFVs). Argonne developed the Alternative Fuel Life-Cycle Environmental and Economic Transportation (AFLEET) Tool to help stakeholders estimate petroleum use, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, air pollutant emissions, and cost of ownership of light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles. AFLEET can be accessed via spreadsheet and online versions. In addition, the ATRAVEL Tool has been built using AFLEET data to examine the costs and benefits of different modes for personal travel.
The ATRAVEL Tool was developed to estimate costs, travel time, and emissions of private vehicle ownership and other travel modes based on your location and travel patterns, while also providing related travel metrics at both local and regional levels. The travel modes currently included are:
- Private vehicle
