Ongoing and Current Research
- Summary of FHWA Climate Change Mitigation Initiatives
- Greenhouse Gas/Energy Analysis Demonstration Projects - FHWA initiated partnerships with four transportation agencies to address various topics related to planning-level GHG emissions analysis. Agencies selected were the Massachusetts DOT, Delaware Valley Regional Planning Council, East-West Gateway Council of Governments, and Southern California Association of Governments. The pilot initiative is intended to identify technical challenges related to GHG emissions analysis, information needs of planners and decision-makers, innovative approaches to evaluating emissions reduction strategies, and opportunities to build analytic and institutional capacity in this area.
- Pilot Testing of FHWA's Energy and Emissions Reduction Policy Analysis Tool (EERPAT) - FHWA is supporting the testing of its EERPAT tool with four departments of transportation. These pilots will help assess the sensitivity of EERPAT to mitigation strategies and identify future enhancements to the model.
