Government Data Centers


DOE Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC)

AFDC is a comprehensive clearinghouse of information about advanced transportation technologies administered by the US Department of Energy. The AFDC offers transportation decision makers unbiased information, data, and tools related to the deployment of alternative fuels and advanced vehicles.


DOE Alternative Fuel Life-Cycle Environmental and Economic Transportation (afleet) tool

Argonne National Laboratory has developed the AFLEET Tool for Clean Cities stakeholders to estimate petroleum use, greenhouse gas emissions, air pollutant emissions, and cost of ownership of light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles using simple spreadsheet inputs. The tool uses data from Argonne's GREET fuel-cycle model to generate necessary well-to-wheels petroleum use and GHG emission co-efficients for key fuel production pathways and vehicle types. EPA data are used to estimate tailpipe air pollutant emissions, and various sources are used to provide default cost data.


Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE)

DSIRE is the most comprehensive source of information on incentives and policies that support renewables and energy efficiency in the United States. DSIRE is currently operated and funded by the N.C. Solar Center at N.C. State University, with support from the Interstate Renewable Energy Council, Inc. DSIRE is funded in part by the U.S. Department of Energy.


EPA AgStar Partnership Program (AgStar)

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's AgSTAR Program is a voluntary outreach and educational program that promotes the recovery and use of methane from animal manure.


EPA Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP)

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP) is a voluntary assistance program that helps to reduce methane emissions from landfills by encouraging the recovery and beneficial use of landfill gas (LFG) as an energy resource. LMOP Publications and Tools.   LMOP Conversion Tool.


EPA Office of Transportation and Air Quality (OTAQ)

EPA's Office of Transportation and Air Quality protects public health and the environment by regulating air pollution from motor vehicles, engines, and the fuels used to operate them, and by encouraging travel choices that minimize emissions. Regulations & Standards. 


Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM) 

NESCAUM is a nonprofit association of air quality agencies in the Northeast USA. NESCAUM's purpose is to provide scientific, technical, analytical, and policy support to the air quality and climate programs of the eight Northeast states and assist member states in implementing national environmental programs required under the Clean Air Act and other federal legislation.


US Energy Information Administration (EIA)

The U.S. Energy Information Administration collects, analyzes, and disseminates independent and impartial energy information to promote sound policymaking, efficient markets, and public understanding of energy and its interaction with the economy and the environment.
