Driving to Cleaner Transportation

Atlas Disposal Industries
The first compressed natural gas/renewable natural gas fueling station in California to both dispense renewable fuels and rely entirely upon renewable fuels for its own operation serves public, private, and school fleet operations.
California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office
An agreement with the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office to advance alternative fuels workforce training across the state.
California Institute of Technology
Researchers from multiple scientific disciplines are working to synthesize fuels just as plants do: from water, carbon dioxide, and sunshine.
City of San Jose
Demonstration of a gasification technology that uses recycled feedstocks such as urban wood waste, yard waste, and biosolids to produce renewable biogas fuel.
Edeniq, Inc.
A cellulosic ethanol demonstration plant using transformational technology to displace corn and other starch feedstocks.
Gas Technology Institute
Development and demonstration of a unique, low-emission, high efficiency natural-gas engine designed for regional hauling and heavy vocational truck applications.
The Linde Group
Building the initial infrastructure to fuel zero emission vehicles that use hydrogen as a fuel.
Pixley Biogas, LLC
Electricity generation from renewable biomethane to power a low carbon-intensity ethanol refinery.
San Francisco City Charge Project
A solution to the challenge of increasing charging in multi-unit dwellings.
UCSD Electric Vehicle Charging Project
Developing and implementing an electric vehicle charging system that will be incorporated into a campus microgrid.

Moving toward a zero-emission transportation future

Through the administration of the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program (ARFVTP), the California Energy Commission is investing in clean transportation projects to help meet California's climate change, air quality and public health goals. Awarding as much as $100 million annually through the program, the Energy Commission is leveraging private investment to transform California's vehicle fleet, grow the economy, and increase energy security through fuel diversity.

This site showcases projects that range from converting food and agricultural waste into biofuels to developing California's electric vehicle and natural gas infrastructure. These projects demonstrate the Energy Commission's portfolio approach, which uses near- and long-term innovative technologies to reduce pollution and emissions from California's passenger vehicles and trucks.
