Alternative Fuels Data Center

Research output: NRELManagement


The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) launched the Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC) in 1991 as a repository for alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) performance data. Since that time, it has evolved to become an indispensable resource for a diverse set of users including fleets, fuel providers, policymakers, Clean Cities coalitions, and others working to find ways to reach their energy and economic goals with alternative and renewable fuels, advanced vehicles, and other energy/fuel-saving measures. The AFDC has achieved this level of engagement because of the many successful public and industry partnerships built in the past 28 years that have contributed to the quality and quantity of information contained on the AFDC website.
