Emerging Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) Study

The U.S. Department of Transportation must conduct an AFV study, focusing specifically on hydrogen, natural gas, or propane, that identifies:

  • Five-year AFV ownership forecasts;
  • AFV infrastructure siting locations, including a map, to support the forecasts;
  • Includes an evaluation and map that identifies concentrations of emerging AFVs to meet fueling infrastructure needs;
  • Barriers to deploying AFV infrastructure at the identified locations; and,
  • Additional maps and tools to allow states to compare and evaluate different AFV adoption and use scenarios.

The report must be made publicly available and submitted to Congress by November 15, 2022.
