Lifecycle assessment of alternative fuel vehicles

A team from U.S. Department of Energy and national laboratories, major automakers, EPRI, and Chevron performed a cradle-to-grave assessment of greenhouse gas emissions and costs for current and future light-duty vehicles. The analysis addressed both fuel cycle and vehicle manufacturing cycle for the following fuels/vehicle types: gasoline and diesel, flex fuel, compressed natural gas, hybrid electric, hydrogen fuel cell, battery electric, and plug-in hybrid. The results were published under the title “Current and Future United States Light-Duty Vehicle Pathways: Cradle-to-Grave Lifecycle Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Economic Assessment” in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.
