Transportation Fuel Action Tool

What is the Transportation Fuel Action Tool?
This tool was created with support from the US Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Coalitions in order to assist public and private fleets in the decision-making process when it comes to the acquisition of new fleet vehicles. Fleet managers can make informed decisions using current fleet data, comparisons of alternative fuel vehicle acquisitions to their petroleum counterparts, and area-specific analysis.

TAT uses data analysis tools from Argonne National Lab and the US Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels Data Center.

Alternative Fuel Life-Cycle Environmental and Economic Transportation (AFLEET) tool
Using simple spreadsheet inputs, AFLEET estimates petroleum use, greenhouse gas emissions, air pollutant emissions, and cost of ownership of light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles. AFLEET examines both the environmental and economic costs and benefits.


Alternative Fuels Data Center Station Locator
The AFDC Station Locator finds alternative fueling stations near an address or ZIP code or along a route in the United States. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) gathers and verifies station information through a variety of methods.

Palmetto Clean Fuels is excited  to introduce a tool to assess which type of alternative fuel may be right for a fleet’s particular area or purpose. Greenlink looks forward to using this tool in the future. It’s simple and full of helpful analysis tools, making my decisions as a fleet manager a little easier. Piedmont Health Foundation was pleased to work with PCF on this initiative. We hope it will serve as a helpful resource for South Carolina fleets.
