Dashboard for Rapid Vehicle Electrification: DRVE Tool

The EC is preparing a new Dashboard for Rapid Vehicle Electrification (DRVE) Tool, providing unique, turnkey analysis for light-, medium-, and heavy-duty fleet electrification. By designing this custom-made tool with partner Atlas Public Policy, this new total cost of ownership (TCO) tool allows users to upload simple fleet data into an easy-to-use Excel-based tool that can analyze and assess best fit for EV deployment within minutes, greatly shortening timing from traditional fleet analysis work. This tool works for both private-sector and public fleets, including both local and state fleets.

Electric Vehicle Cost and Incentive Impact Tool

This tool gives public stakeholders and advocates the ability to visualize the potential outcomes of an electric vehicle incentive program. Specifically estimates the cost efficiency of a proposed program, that is, the cost per kg CO2 avoided by each mode over the course of one year. Additionally takes the proposed budget into consideration to calculate the potential number of incentives made available and the amount of total CO2 avoided from ICE VMT displacement.

Co-Benefits Risk Assessment Screening Tool (COBRA)

The EPA’s COBRA tool allows local governments to understand the potential for clean energy to enhance air quality, health, and social well being; design program options that maximize benefits; build support for clean energy investments based on benefits; narrow policy options to those that should be evaluated using more sophisticated air quality models; present information about localized benefits; and support a balanced decision-making process that considers costs and benefits of policy options.
