The EIA has submitted an information collection request to the OMB for extension under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The information collection requests a three-year extension, without change, of its Form EIA-886, Annual Survey of Alternative Fuel Vehicles, OMB Control Number 1905-0191. The proposed collection will gather information on the number and type of alternative fueled vehicles (AFVs) and other advanced technology vehicles that vehicle suppliers made available in the previous calendar year and plan to make available in the following calendar year; the number, type and geographic distribution of AFVs in use in the previous calendar year; and the amount and distribution of each type of alternative transportation fuel (ATF) consumed in the previous calendar year.

Agency Information Collection Extension

AGENCY: U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), Department of 
Energy.

ACTION: Notice and request for OMB review and comment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The EIA has submitted an information collection request to the 
OMB for extension under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995. The information collection requests a three-year extension, 
without change, of its Form EIA-886, Annual Survey of Alternative Fuel 
Vehicles, OMB Control Number 1905-0191. The proposed collection will 
gather information on the number and type of alternative fueled 
vehicles (AFVs) and other advanced technology vehicles that vehicle 
suppliers made available in the previous calendar year and plan to make 
available in the following calendar year; the number, type and 
geographic distribution of AFVs in use in the previous calendar year; 
and the amount and distribution of each type of alternative 
transportation fuel (ATF) consumed in the previous calendar year.

DATES: Comments regarding this proposed information collection must be 
received on or before October 26, 2015. If you anticipate that you will 
be submitting comments, but find it difficult to do so within the 
period of time allowed by this notice, please advise the DOE Desk 
Officer at OMB of your intention to make a submission as soon as 
possible. The Desk Officer may be telephoned at 202-395-4718.

ADDRESSES: Written comments should be sent to the DOE Desk Officer, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and 
Budget, New Executive Office Building, Room 10102, 735 17th Street NW., 
Washington, DC 20503.
    And to Cynthia Amezcua, EI-22, U.S. Department of Energy, 1000 
Independence Avenue SW., Washington, DC 20585, Fax (202) 586-9753, 
Email [email protected].

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or 
copies of the information collection instrument and instructions should 
be directed to Cynthia Amezcua, EI-22, [email protected], (202) 
586-1658 http://wwwdev.eia.gov/survey/#eia-886.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    This information collection request contains: (1) OMB No. 1905-
0191; (2) Information Collection Request Title: Annual Survey of 
Alternative Fueled Vehicles; (3) Type of Request: Extension, without 
change, of a currently approved collection; (4) Purpose: Form EIA-886 
data are collected from suppliers and users of AFVs. EIA uses data from 
these groups as a basis for estimating total AFV and ATF use in the 
U.S. These data are needed by Federal and State agencies, fuel 
suppliers, transit agencies and other fleets to determine if sufficient 
quantities of AFVs are available for purchase and to provide Congress 
with a measure of the extent to which the objectives of the Energy 
Policy Act of 1992 are being achieved. These data serve as market 
analysis tools for Congress, Federal/State agencies, AFV suppliers, 
vehicle fleet managers, and other interested organizations and persons. 
These data are also needed to satisfy numerous public requests for 
detailed information on AFVs and ATFs (in particular, the number of 
AFVs distributed by State, as well as the amount and location of the 
ATFs being consumed).
    EIA publishes summary information from the Form EIA-886 database in 
an annual report on EIA's Web site (www.eia.gov). This report covers 
historical and projected supplies of AFVs, AFV usage by selected user 
groups, and estimates of total U.S. AFV counts and U.S. consumption of 
ATFs. These data provide baseline inputs for DOE's transportation 
sector energy models. They also provide the energy consumption measures 
for alternative transportation fuels in EIA's State Energy Data System. 
For example, EIA's National Energy Modeling System (NEMS) has a 
component model that forecasts transportation sector energy consumption 
and provides a framework for AFV policy and technology analysis. The 
data obtained from Form EIA-886 are used to improve the explanatory 
power of the NEMS Transportation Demand Model by allowing for greater 
detail in representing AFV types and characteristics; (5) Annual 
Estimated Number of Respondents: 2,050; (6) Annual Estimated Number of 
Total Responses: 2,050; (7) Annual Estimated Number of Burden Hours: 
8,215; (8) Annual Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Cost Burden: 
EIA estimates that there are no capital and start-up costs associated 
with this data collection. The information is maintained in the normal 
course of business. The cost of burden hours to the respondents is 
estimated to be $591,234 (8,215 burden hours times $71.97 per hour). 
Therefore, other than the cost of burden hours, EIA estimates that 
there are no additional costs for generating, maintaining and providing 
the information.

    Statutory Authority:  Section 13(b) of the Federal Energy 
Administration Act of 1974, Pub. L. 93-275, (FEA Act), and codified 
at 15 U.S.C. 772(b), and section 503(b)(2) of the Energy Policy Act 
of 1992, Pub. L. 102-486 (EPACT92) codified at 42 U.S.C. 13253.
