Estimating GHG Reduction from Combinations of Current Best-Available and Future Powertrain and Vehicle Technologies for a Midsized Car Using EPA’s ALPHA Model (SAE 2016-01-0910). SAE - SOCIETY OF AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERS. SAE International, Warrendale, PA.

Impact/Purpose:

This paper presents the ALPHA model inputs, results and the lessons learned during this modeling and assessment activity.

Description:

EPA identified the best, or most efficient, engines, transmissions and vehicle technologies, and then used ALPHA to predict the GHG emissions would be from a midsized car incorporating the best combination of these technologies.
