The Drive to Zero toolkit highlights successful and promising strategies that support faster adoption of zero and near-zero commercial vehicles.
The Zero-Emission Technology Inventory (ZETI) tool is an interactive online resource to establish a current and shared knowledge base for worldwide commercially available offerings of
The Vehicle and Infrastructure Cash-Flow Evaluation (VICE) models are financial tools developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory to help fleet managers assess the financial
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.

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.
The ICAT Sustainable Development Guidance helps users assess the sustainable development impacts of policies and actions. Helps users use an integrated method to assess sustainable development impacts of policies, helps policymakers develop effective strategies for achieving sustainable development objectives by understanding impacts of policies, and supports consistent reporting of sustainable development impacts and policy effectiveness.
The GHG Protocol for Cities provides a framework for accounting and reporting city-wide greenhouse gas emissions. Helps cities develop a greenhouse gas inventory to support climate action planning; helps cities establish a base year emissions inventory and track performance; ensures consistent measurement and reporting between cities; enables city inventories to be aggregated; demonstrates the important role that cities play in tackling climate change, and facilitates insight through benchmarking of comparable data.
The GHG Project Protocol provides principles, concepts, and methods for quantifying and reporting GHG reductions. Provides a transparent approach for quantifying and reporting GHG reductions from GHG projects; enhances the credibility of GHG project accounting through the application of common accounting concepts, procedures, and principles; and provides a platform for harmonization among different project-based GHG initiatives and programs.
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.
This tool evaluates the magnitude of emission reductions from local air pollution and carbon emissions and determine barriers to implementation of policies and projects. Presents a linear representation of the public transport system in a city that can help policy makers understand the various benefits of different policies.
The CURB tool from the World Bank allows cities to identify and prioritize low-carbon infrastructure and other greenhouse gas reduction actions; understand impact on emissions and financial performance of potential actions; compare multiple scenarios; and draw area-specific data to refine.
This tool calculates the number and economic value of air pollution-related deaths and illnesses. Incorporates a database that includes many of the concentration-response relationships, population files, and health and economic data needed to quantify these impacts.
The AFDC Plug-In EV Handbook provides information on plug-in electric vehicles for a variety of users, particularly public charging station hosts. Answers basic questions about plug-in electric vehicles, charging stations, charging equipment, and considerations for relevant parties.
This tool assists public, fleet, and workplace site hosts evaluate the costs of installing and operating electric vehicle charging equipment.
