California continues to lead the nation in the adoption of low- and zero-emission transportation and fuel technologies.
To meet the need for a skilled workforce in the state’s growing clean transportation and fuels market, the California Energy Commission’s Clean Transportation Program "formerly known as the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program", is investing in manufacturing and workforce training and development, working with a variety of public and private partners.
Through Clean Transportation Program investments, the Energy Commission helps workforce development and training entities to expand their current programs, and develop 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 to achieve the state’s greenhouse gas reduction goals.
The Energy Commission’s public partners include the California Community Colleges Advanced Transportation and Logistics program (ATL), California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, Employment Development Department, and Employment Training Panel.
