CEC Seeks Input on New Medium and Heavy Duty Vehicle Solicitation
The California Energy Commission is preparing a new solicitation to fund medium and heavy duty advanced vehicle technology demonstrations. Total available funding for the ARFVTP-MD/HD (Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program – Medium Duty/Heavy Duty) effort is just shy of $24.9 million.
CEC seeks to facilitate the development and commercialization of MHD vehicles for goods movement and freight transport. Pathways include natural gas vehicles, electric drive vehicles including hydrogen fuel cell power, and hybrid/range-extender combinations.
The agency is planning for a competitive process, with applicants willing to put up matching funds, and maximum awards of $4 million.
CEC will take suggestions for the new solicitation, including how best match infrastructure requirements with the deployment of new technology vehicles, until this Thursday, July 31.
