The GHGenius

GHGenius is a spreadsheet model that calculates the amount of greenhouse gases generated from the time a fuel is extracted or grown to the time that it is converted in a motive energy vehicle to produce power. Whether the fuel is burned in an internal combustion engine or transformed in a fuel cell, GHGenius identifies the amount of greenhouse gases generated by a wide variety of fuels and technologies, the amount of energy used and provided, and the cost effectiveness of the entire life cycle.
