The California Energy Commission (CEC) administers the Clean Transportation Program (Program) to provide financial incentives for businesses, vehicle and technology manufacturers, workforce training partners, fleet owners, consumers, and academic institutions with the goal of developing and deploying alternative and renewable fuels and advanced transportation technologies. Funding areas include:

  • Electric vehicles and charging infrastructure;
  • Hydrogen vehicles and refueling infrastructure;
  • Medium- and heavy-duty zero emission vehicles;
  • Natural gas vehicles and refueling infrastructure;
  • Biofuels; and,
  • Workforce development.
The CEC must prepare and adopt an annual Investment Plan for the Program to establish funding priorities and opportunities that reflect program goals and to describe how program funding will complement other public and private investments. For more information, see the Program website. (Reference California Health and Safety Code 44270-44274.7 and California Code of Regulations, Title 13, Chapter 8.1)
