Calif. Energy Commission Releases Draft Alt-Fuel Plan

August 10, 2010

SACRAMENTO, CA - The California Energy Commission has released a draft of its 2010-2011 Investment Plan for the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program -- an annual document that sets funding priorities for the $100 million-a-year program. 

The program, created by Assembly Bill 118 in 2007 and later amended by Assembly Bill 109 in 2008, seeks to provide a path toward meeting the state's climate change policies. The Energy Commission will establish a new advisory committee to help develop and adopt the investment plan. Committee meetings will be open to the public. The public and all stakeholders are encouraged to submit comments about any proposals to the commission. 

The investment plan is intended to guide the allocation of program funding. The program's goals include promoting the increased use of alternative transportation fuels, including electricity, natural gas, biomethane, propane, hydrogen, ethanol, renewable diesel and biodiesel. Funding priorities are analyzed based on the State Alternative Fuels Plan's 2020 and 2050 greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.
