State or Federal?
The project(s) funded under this Solicitation will reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and provide economic, environmental, and public health co-benefits to Disadvantaged Communities as identified by the California Environmental Protection Agency, while demonstrating the practicality and economic viability of widespread adoption of advanced truck technologies. Projects funded under this solicitation will demonstrate technologies in one or more of the following three categories: (1) Intelligent Transportation Systems and Connected Trucks, (2) Advanced Engines and Powertrains, and (3) Zero- and Near-Zero Emission Short and Regional Haul Trucks. Projects will be funded that provide both immediate emission reductions from the vehicles directly funded and, more importantly, set the stage for greater, indirect reductions in the future by accelerating large-scale market penetration and technology transfer to other sectors. Funding is provided for projects that support evolution through three phases of technology advancement: demonstration, commercialization, and transition to widespread deployment.
