Fleet performance data collected through the Federal Automotive Statistical Tool (FAST) website reveals trends in federal agencies' alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) acquisitions, petroleum reduction efforts, and alternative fuel use. These data can help agencies analyze their fleets' performance in meeting federal mandates.
The Federal Energy Management Program posts federal fleet performance data sets in various formats, including charts and maps, data sets, and annual reports that can be downloaded, saved, and manipulated for individual research.
The methodologies section explains which agencies, vehicles, and fuels are covered and tracked through FAST. For more information about the data, analyses, and trends presented, contact Cabell Hodge at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
NREL's analysis of federal fleet performance uses data derived from FAST. Certain covered federal departments and agencies are required to report annually on the number of alternative fuel vehicles in their fleets as well as the total number of all vehicles, whether light-, medium-, or heavy-duty. They are also required to specify and quantify the type of fuel used. Total vehicle counts and alternative and petroleum fuel consumption amounts are for domestically based vehicles, including law enforcement and emergency vehicles.
