Alternatives to Traditional Transportation Fuels, 2009

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) collects data on the following items: 1) the number of alternative fueled vehicles (AFVs) supplied each year; i.e., new AFVs and conventionally fueled vehicles converted to operate on an alternate fuel; 2) the number and type of advanced technology vehicles supplied each year; i.e., gasoline- electric hybrids and diesel-electric hybrids; 3) for a limited set of fleet user groups, the number of AFVs in use and the amount of alternate transportation fuel consumed. The user groups surveyed are: Federal and State governments, alternate fuel providers, and transit companies. EIA combines these sets of data and other external information to develop an estimate of AFVs for the remaining users, municipal governments and private fleets. The result is a set of AFV supply and use data that represents all AFVs in the United States. Three sets of AFV data tables are available: 1) AFVs supplied; 2) AFVs in use; and 3) consumption of alternative transportation fuels.
