Talk:  “Exploring Lower Carbon Futures for the Automobile in the USA
with ATEAM”

Automobiles generate over 40% of the USA’s greenhouse gas emissions today. How might the USA best reduce these emissions and its dependence on oil?  Should it focus on expanding its use of biofuels, natural gas, electric vehicles, or hydrogen fuel cells? How far can simple improvements in vehicle efficiency make a difference? Or changes in driving patterns and consumer preferences for large vehicles?  ATEAM (Analytica Transportation Energy Assessment Model) is an agile decision support model designed to support rapid interactive exploration of policy scenarios. It models the light-duty and heavy-duty vehicle fleets in the US using a wide variety of fuels and technologies. It projects the effects of fuel and electricity costs, fuel infrastructure, and consumer preferences. It helps users explore the effects of a variety of assumptions and uncertainties about technology, economics, and environmental impacts. I will illustrate use of ATEAM to explore a variety of policy questions. I will also discuss how this kind of agile decision support can be used by multiple stakeholders to illuminate areas of agreement and controversy, and so develop deeper insights and shared understanding of this complex dynamic system.
