The 2019-2020 Investment Plan Update for the Clean Transportation Program (also known as the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program) guides the allocation of program funding for Fiscal Year 2019-2020. This 2019-2020 Investment Plan Update covers the eleventh year of the program and reflects laws, executive orders, and policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, petroleum dependence, and criteria pollution emissions. It details how the California Energy Commission determines the goal-driven priorities of the program by incorporating input from stakeholders, the Disadvantaged Communities Advisory Group, and the Clean Transportation 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 2019-2020 Investment Plan Update establishes funding allocations based on identified needs and opportunities, including a near-term focus on zero-emission vehicles and infrastructure.
This Energy Commission report represents the final step in developing the 2019-2020 Investment Plan Update, following the draft staff report, revised staff report, lead commissioner report, revised lead commissioner report, and second revised lead commissioner report that were published in November 2018, January 2019, March 2019, July 2019, and August 2019, respectively. This report was adopted at the September 11, 2019, Energy Commission business meeting.
