FHWA CMAQ Emissions Calculator for AFVs and Infrastructure now available!
FHWA CMAQ Emissions Calculator
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Office of Natural Environment has developed a series of tools to provide technical support and resources for the implementation of the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program. The Alternative Fuels and Vehicles component provides estimates of emission reductions for CMAQ-funded projects where users are purchasing alternative fuel vehicles to replace a conventional fuel fleet or developing new alternative fuel infrastructure with restricted or unrestricted access. The tool uses emissions rates based on a national-scale run of the EPA MOVES model and alternative fuel factors from Argonne National Laboratory's AFLEET Tool. Detailed use and methodology are explained in accompanying documentation provided on the FHWA website. The entire toolkit can be accessed here.
