National Renewable Energy Lab Tools that Can Make All the Difference for Fleet Analysis

Tuesday, March 4, 3:30PM–4:15PM

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has invested in resources to accurately predict the actual reduction a fleet will recognize through the adoption of a sustainable technology. As part of this effort, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Argonne National Laboratory have developed several computer-based tools that utilize drive and duty cycle data to address this issue and that allow fleet managers to conduct “what if” scenarios based on the potential adoption of various sustainable technologies. During this session, real-world examples from DOE national partners will be used to demonstrate the process and results.
