The 2017-2018 Investment Plan Update for the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program guides the allocation of program funding for fiscal year 2017-2018. This 2017-2018 Investment Plan Update covers the ninth 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 determines the goal-driven priorities of the program by incorporating input from stakeholders and the program Advisory Committee and by analyzing project opportunities for funding. These priorities are consistent with the overall goal of the program “to develop and deploy innovative technologies that transform California’s fuel and vehicle types to help attain the state’s climate change policies.”
This 2017-2018 Investment Plan Update establishes recommended funding allocations based on the identified needs and opportunities of a variety of alternative fuels and vehicle technologies. As an update, the 2017-2018 Investment Plan Update relies on the narrative and analyses developed in previous investment plans, most recently the 2016-2017 Investment Plan Update.
This Energy Commission report represents the final step in the development of the 2017-2018 Investment Plan Update, following the draft staff report, revised staff report, and lead commissioner report that were published in October 2016, January 2017, and March 2017, respectively. This report was adopted at the April 12, 2017 Energy Commission business meeting.
