The tools tab linked here features fleet cost calculators, electric vehicle cost calculators, economic impact calculators, petroleum use calculators, various maps, various databases, and much more.
Alternative Fuel Station Locator
The Alternative Fuel Station Locator is a great tool for planning long distance drives in an electric vehicle (EV). This tool lets users find the perfect route for them based on alternative fuel type, charger style preference, road type preference, and route preference. Visit the tool here.
Alternative Fuel Life-Cycle Environmental and Economic Transportation (AFLEET) Tool
The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Clean Cities program teamed up with Argonne Labatory to develop a tool for fleet operators. The goal of the tool is to estimate petroleum use, greenhouse gas emissions, air pollutant emissions, and cost of ownership of light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles using simple spreadsheet inputs.
