The 2012-2013 Investment Plan Update for the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program guides the allocation of program funding and is prepared annually based on input and advice of the Assembly Bill 118 Advisory Committee. This 2012-2013 Investment Plan Update covers the fourth year of the program and reflects laws, executive orders, and policies to reduce petroleum use, greenhouse gas emissions, and criteria emissions; increase alternative fuel use; and spur developing bioenergy sources in California. It details how the California Energy Commission, with input from stakeholders and the Advisory Committee, determines the program’s goal-driven priorities coupled with project opportunities for funding. These priorities are consistent with the program’s goal “to develop and deploy innovative technologies that transform California’s fuel and vehicle types to help attain the state’s climate change policies.”
This 2012-2013 Investment Plan Update provides funding recommendations based on alternative and renewable fuel and vehicle technology analyses and identified opportunities. As an update, the 2012-2013 Investment Plan Update relies on the analysis developed in previous investment plans, most recently the 2011-2012 Investment Plan. This document also draws on input from Advisory Committee members and other stakeholders during the development process for the 2012-2013 Investment Plan Update.
