The 2014-2015 Investment Plan Update for the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program guides the allocation of program funding for fiscal year 2014-2015. This 2014-2015 Investment Plan Update covers the sixth year of the program and reflects laws, executive orders, and policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, petroleum dependence, and criteria emissions.
It details how the California Energy Commission, with input from stakeholders and the program Advisory Committee, determines the program’s goal-driven priorities, coupled with project opportunities for funding. These priorities are consistent with the program’s overall 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 2014-2015 Investment Plan Update establishes funding allocations based on the identified needs and opportunities of a variety of alternative fuels and vehicle technologies. As an update, the 2014-2015 Investment Plan Update relies on the narrative and analyses developed in previous investment plans, most recently the 2013-2014 Investment Plan Update.
This commission report represents the final product in the development of the 2014-2015 Investment Plan Update. The Energy Commission held public Advisory Committee workshops at the Energy Commission on November 4, 2013, to collect feedback on the initial staff draft, and at the University of California, Irvine campus on February 10, 2014, to collect feedback on the revised staff draft. A lead commissioner report version was released on April 8, 2014, and the Energy Commission adopted this commission report at its Business Meeting on April 22, 2014.
