ASSESSMENT OF COSTS AND BENEFITS OF FLEXIBLE AND ALTERNATIVE FUEL USE IN THE U.S. TRANSPORTATION SECTOR. TECHNICAL REPORT FOURTEEN: MARKET POTENTIAL AND IMPACTS OF ALTERNATIVE FUEL USE IN LIGHT-DUTY VEHICLES - A 2000/2010 ANALYSIS

In this report, estimates are provided of the potential, by 2010, to displace conventional light-duty vehicle motor fuels with alternative fuels - compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), methanol from natural gas, ethanol from grain and from cellulosic feedstocks, and electricity - and with replacement fuels such as oxygenates added to gasoline. The 2010 estimates include the motor fuel displacement resulting both from government programs and from potential market forces. This report also provides an estimate of motor fuel displacement by replacement and alternative fuels in the year 2000. However, in contrast to the 2010 estimates, the year 2000 estimate is restricted to an accounting of the effects of existing programs and regulations.
