About the 2022 Transportation Annual Technology Baseline
The Transportation Annual Technology Baseline (ATB) provides a set of assumptions that can be used in analyses and projections across the transportation sector. Projections are presented through the year 2050.
Use of the assumptions in the Transportation ATB can provide consistency across analysis projects and modeling, facilitate the tracking and sourcing of input assumptions, and reduce the lead time in conducting scenario analysis.
These assumptions are based on previously published resources and are reviewed periodically. Given the rapid pace of technology improvement and market advancement the assumptions made here might not reflect the most recent trends. As data become available, ATB data are updated to reflect updated cost and performance trajectories.
Transportation ATB Team
The Transportation ATB is led by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), assembled by a team of analysts from the U.S. Department of Energy's national laboratories, and sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy.
The 2022 Transportation ATB team members include:
- Biofuels: Ling Tao, NREL
- Biofuels and GREET analysis: Hao Cai and Uisung Lee, Argonne National Laboratory
- Hydrogen and GREET analysis: Adarsh Bafana, Argonne National Laboratory
- Vehicles: Paige Jadun and Arthur Yip, NREL; Amgad Elgowainy, Ehsan Islam, Aymeric Rousseau, and Ram Vijayogopal, Argonne National Laboratory
- Aviation: Ranjit Desai, NREL
- Project coordination: Laura Vimmerstedt, NREL
- Data and documentation development: Ranjit Desai, Matthew Heine, Paige Jadun, Dana Stright, and Arthur Yip, NREL
- Website production: Mike Bannister and Jeremy Jenkins, NREL
- Editing: Amy Brice, NREL
- Quality Control Review: Bo Lieu and Dan Mazzone, NREL
- DOE Project Leads: Paul Spitsen and Neha Rustagi
The ATB is one of many data products that the NREL energy analysis staff provides. The 2022 Transportation ATB uses data from Argonne National Laboratory, which develops many other analytic work products through its Transportation and Power Systems division.
Transportation ATB Sponsor
The ATB—which is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Strategic Priorities and Impact Analysis Team, Bioenergy Technologies Office, Vehicle Technologies Office, and Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office—leverages and continues significant activity funded by the U.S. Energy Department of Energy and the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy for individual technologies and market segments.
