Three Lessons from Trends in Alternative Fuel Vehicle Production

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study examines three tends in alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) production within the United States, and derives unique lessons regarding AFVs ability to displace and reduce fossil fuel consumption. Each lesson is meant to demonstrate how the theoretical concept of the Treadmill of Production can be used to problematize the ways in which AFVs are introduced into society. To accomplish this I have developed 4 panel models (fixed-effects/random-effects) from 2003-2010: the correlation between alternative fuel and gasoline/diesel consumption, the correlation between AFVs and the number of vehicles consuming gasoline and diesel,the correlation between trends in economic growth and the amount of alternative fuel used, and the correlation between fossil fuel use and economic trends. Each lesson is developed based upon an empirical observation illustrated in this study, and will offer insights as to how and why these trends occur. Lesson one investigates the elastic relationship between FFVs, AFVs, and GDP trends, and illuminates the differences between trends in gasoline and alternative fuel consumption. Lesson two discusses why alternative fuel growth is associated increases in fossil fuel consumption. Finally, lesson three illustrates how proportional increases in the number of AFVs does not lead to decreases in the consumption rates of fossil fuel per vehicle.
