The 2022–2023 Investment Plan Update for the Clean Transportation Program guides the allocation of program funding for Fiscal Year 2022–2023 and the first six months of Fiscal Year 2023-2024. The program is set to expire at the end of the calendar year 2023. The California Energy Commission (CEC) reviews the proposed allocations annually and makes adjustments as needed.
This 2022–2023 investment plan covers the fourteenth year of the program and reflects laws, executive orders, regulations, and other funding programs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, petroleum dependence, and criteria pollution emissions for all Californians. Program priorities are determined with input from stakeholders, the Disadvantaged Communities Advisory Group, the Clean Transportation Program Advisory Committee, and by CEC analyses such as the Senate Bill 1000 Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Deployment Assessment and the Assembly Bill 2127 Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Assessment-Analyzing Charging Needs to Support Zero-Emission Vehicles in 2030. These priorities are consistent with the overall program 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 2022–2023 Investment Plan Update establishes funding allocations based on identified needs and opportunities, including a focus on zero-emission vehicle infrastructure. The investment plan also prioritizes jobs, economic stimulus, and equity.
This draft staff report represents the first step in developing the 2022–2023 Investment Plan Update. Before the adoption of the report at a CEC business meeting, the Energy Commission expects to release a Lead Commissioner report later in the year, as well as convene at least two advisory committee workshops and conduct other stakeholder outreach and engagement.
