Alternative Fuels Vehicle Technology
Alternative Fuels: ESAI Energy uses the same country-by-country approach to analyzing and forecasting supply and demand of alternative fuels as it does for the petroleum market. A myriad of factors ranging from transport fuel demand to price competitiveness and policy influences use of alternative fuels. Our analysis and forecasts of alternative fuel use takes into account specification changes, government policy, production technology, feedstock prices, international trade, and the cost-competitiveness of conventional fuels.
Our ongoing coverage of the global alternative fuels demand, supply and prices focuses on the growth and development of first-and second-generation biofuels technologies on a monthly basis two years out and annually 25 years out.
Vehicle Technologies: ESAI Energy examines the convergence of dramatically tightening fuel economy standards, the rise of greater gasoline engine efficiency, trends in dieselization and diesel technology, fuel switching, LNG, the expansion of hybrid-electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid, and electric vehicles. Projections of future transport fuel demand carefully incorporate our assumptions about future vehicle technology trends.
