Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program celebrates 10th anniversary

Program supports goal of getting 5 million zero-emission vehicles on road


The California Energy Commission's Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program (ARFVTP) celebrated its 10th anniversary this year with a March 7 event at the Capitol. The program is one of the first created by the California State Legislature to help achieve the state's climate change policies.

The ARFVTP spurs innovations in a broad portfolio of alternative fuels and transportation that help California meet its ambitious air quality, petroleum reduction, and climate change goals.

The program has invested more than $750 million in more than 600 projects throughout the state. In the coming year, the program will continue to invest in the infrastructure needed to support Governor Edmund G. Brown's, Jr.'s goal of getting 5 million zero-emission vehicles on the road in California by 2030.
