Summary of CARB/CEC Zero Emission Drayage Truck and Infrastructure Pilot Project Workshop

On June 11, the California Energy Commission (CEC) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) hosted a remote-access workshop to solicit feedback on the forthcoming, first of its kind, joint solicitation for the Zero-Emission Drayage Truck and Infrastructure Pilot Project. This is a combined effort, with funding provided by CEC’s Clean Transportation Program funds and CARB’s Fiscal Year 2019-2020 Funding Plan for Clean Transportation Incentives for Low Carbon Transportation Investments and the Air Quality Improvement Program. This upcoming solicitation will provide up to $20 million from CARB for large scale deployments of zero-emission Class 8 trucks and up to $20 million from CEC for equipment and infrastructure to support the vehicles.
