The 2020-2021 Investment Plan Update for the Clean Transportation Program (previously known as the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program) guides the allocation of program funding for Fiscal Year 2020-2021. This 2020-2021 Investment Plan Update covers the twelfth 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 newly revised 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 2020-2021 Investment Plan Update establishes funding allocations based on identified needs and opportunities, including a near-term focus on zero-emission vehicles and infrastructure.
This draft staff report represents the first step in developing the 2020-2021 Investment Plan Update. Before the adoption of the report at an Energy Commission business meeting, the Energy Commission expects to release a Lead Commissioner report in May 2020, as well as convene at least two advisory committee workshops.
