Driving to Cleaner Transportation Projects

Through the administration of the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program (ARFVTP), the California Energy Commission is investing in clean transportation projects to help meet California's climate change, air quality and public health goals. Awarding as much as $100 million annually through the program, the Energy Commission is leveraging private investment to transform California's vehicle fleet, grow the economy, and increase energy security through fuel diversity.

This site showcases projects that range from converting food and agricultural waste into biofuels to developing California's electric vehicle and natural gas infrastructure. These projects demonstrate the Energy Commission's portfolio approach, which uses near- and long-term innovative technologies to reduce pollution and emissions from California's passenger vehicles and trucks.
