Developed by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory using its AFLEET Tool 2017, this online resource aids fleet managers and decision makers in comparing vehicle technologies for real world, in-use emission reduction in order to maximize their state’s VW funding investment.

VW Trust News and Upcoming Dates

  • On January 31, Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne or ANL) unveiled its new Heavy-Duty Vehicle Emissions Calculator (HDVEC) during a presentation at FedFleet 2018, the annual gathering of federal government fleet officials. The new ANL emissions calculator makes it easier for state officials and fleet operators to assess the emission reduction potential of various medium- and heavy-duty vehicle projects and to also evaluate the relative cost-effectiveness of reducing harmful emissions.
  • Washington's Draft Mitigation Plan is open for public comment from 10 a.m., Nov. 16 through 9 a.m., Dec. 19, 2017.

  • Heavy-duty vehicles are the fastest growing segment of U.S. transportation in terms of energy use and emissions. Today’s just-in-time delivery expectation and expanding goods movement industry ensure the number of trucks on our roads won’t decline anytime soon. That’s good news for the freight transport industry and the positive economic activity that goes along with increased trucking.
