Calif. ‘Drive’ Website Lists Funding Opportunities for Alt Fuels

July 25, 2011

The California Energy Commission's "Drive" website presents a clear view of the state's Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program.

SACRAMENTO, CA - The California Energy Commission (CEC) unveiled "Drive," a new website providing information about greener transportation choices.

"The new website presents a much needed, clear view of the state's Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program. This landmark economic development program provides as much as $100 million annually in competitive grants and financial incentives to develop alternatives to fossil fuels," said Energy Commission Vice Chair James Boyd. " 'Drive' clearly lays out the many funding opportunities and serves as a clearinghouse of information from such varied sources as state and federal government agencies, utilities, and vehicle manufacturers."

The website details a wide range of transportation projects -- from producing renewable fuels, to installing new fueling and charging stations for electric cars and other alternative fuel vehicles, to training the workforce that supports the transportation industry. "Drive" is designed for businesses and manufacturers hoping to develop new technologies, for fleet managers looking to upgrade their vehicles, and for local governments seeking incentives to invest in green transportation, according to the CEC.
