California continues to lead the nation in the adoption of low- and zero-emission transportation and fuel technologies. To meet the state’s need for a skilled workforce in this area, the California Energy Commission’s Clean Transportation Program is investing in manufacturing and workforce training and development, working with a variety of public and private partners. (The Clean Transportation Program was previously called the “Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program”.)

Clean Transportation Program workforce investments include expanding current programs and developing new programs to support workers in California’s zero-emission vehicle and zero-emission vehicle infrastructure sectors. These investments support the state’s transition to clean transportation, provide pathways to sustained clean-transportation job opportunities, and help achieve the state’s greenhouse gas reduction goals.

The Energy Commission’s public partners in these efforts include the California Community Colleges Advanced Transportation and Logistics program (ATL), California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, Employment Development Department, and Employment Training Panel.

See the Energy Commission’s ZEV Workforce Portal for information on the Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Training Program (EVITP), which is required for many Energy Commission–funded projects.
