CARB announces $24 million in new grants for zero-emission truck and bus pilots

Motiv Power Systems - Google Shuttle

The California Air Resources Board (ARB) has announced a grant solicitation for Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Pilot Commercial Deployment Projects. Almost $24 million is available for fiscal year 2014-15, and an additional $60 million may be appropriated by the California legislature by next June.

This project is intended to speed the deployment of commercially available medium- and heavy-duty zero-emission vehicles. There are several suitable vehicles already available in the transit bus, school bus, and delivery truck categories.

Organizations that ARB says are well suited to this project include transit agencies, school districts, shuttle operators and companies that offer delivery and hauling services.

This project complements an earlier round of grants for demonstrations of advanced freight technology, including zero-emission drayage trucks.
