Transforming Trucks: Transforming Communities

The U.S. runs on trucks. More than 70% of the goods we use everyday—from the food we eat to the clothes on our backs—are moved from point A to point B (and C and D) on trucks. As demand for trucking continues to grow, so does congestion, noise, and air pollution. Many in the trucking industry understand that this is a real problem but not enough know that clean trucking solutions exist for small businesses and fleets.

Transforming Trucks Transforming Communities (TTTC) is changing that, with:

  1. Tools for Communities
  2. Tools for Fleets

Working Groups

California School Buses

Electric School Bus

Peer-to-peer interactions with other school districts to discuss and solve problems with electric school bus deployments. The working group is an on-going meeting that will bring up-to-date information to school districts with guest presentations by industry experts on topics relevant to the group.

Funding Plans

CARB hosts public engagement opportunities throughout the year  for development of the annual Funding Plan for Low Carbon Transportation Investments and Air Quality Improvement Program, which includes HVIP.  The Plan outlines policies for Low Carbon Transportation funds allocated to CARB in the State budget and  establishes CARB’s priorities for the funding cycle.

Why Infrastructure Must Come First

Infrastructure readiness remains the biggest barrier to advanced vehicle deployment. EnergIIZE Commercial Vehicles (Energy Infrastructure Incentives for Zero-Emission) is the nation’s first commercial vehicle fleet infrastructure incentive project. Funded by the California Energy Commission’s Clean Transportation Program, EnergIIZE provides incentives for infrastructure equipment for battery-electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. The project provides a user-friendly and streamlined process through targeted incentives across four different funding lanes. Get started today at EnergIIZE.org.

Utility Coordination

Find your utility

Several utilities provide incentives to fleets in their service territory. If you don’t know who your utility provider is, check out https://cecgis-caenergy.opendata.arcgis.com/apps/california-electric-infrastructure-app/explore, select the “Layer List” icon (second from left), check the Electric Load Servicing Entities boxes (clear all others), then type the vehicle domicile address in the search bar. Information will pop up including the name of the utility that services this property.

Drive to Zero Tools

CALSTART’s Drive to Zero aims to enable and accelerate the growth of global zero-emission commercial vehicles with the vision that zero-emission technology will be commercially viable by 2025 and dominant by 2040. Drive to Zero provides a Zero-Emission Technology Inventory (ZETI) and Polices and Actions Tool Kit.

Project 800

About the Project

CARB’s Project 800 initiative gathers drayage truck sales data from public incentive projects, as well as through direct outreach to manufacturers about their orders. Sales made today help jump-start this important segment in support of Governor Newsom’s Executive Order (N-79-20). In 2021, over 600 class 8 drayage trucks were ordered, serving California ports and freight facilities. These represent a first cut in a transformational period for clean truck technologies, with $75 million more in dedicated vehicle incentives and over $80 million in infrastructure incentives coming available as early as mid-2022. The count continues!
