Consumer preference data related to alternative fuel and advanced vehicle technologies assists in the research needed for the development and implementation of these technologies.

NREL collects, analyzes, and reports on consumer preference data related to alternative fuel and advanced vehicles and their effects on energy usage in transportation. The findings are made available here to support the understanding of barriers to, and opportunities for, these technologies.


The following presentations and reports provide more information about NREL's consumer preference data analysis.
