The California Energy Commission has approved $2.5 million in grants for six alternative-fuel projects through its Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program (ARFVTP).

Nearly $1.2 million was awarded to the clean transportation consortium CALSTART to launch, manage, and sustain the San Joaquin Valley Clean Transportation Center, with the goal of accelerating deployment of alternative-fuel vehicles in the area.

The commission also approved an agreement with the California Air Resources Board for a $650,000 contract to collect and analyze in-use vehicle data, including electric vehicle (EV) miles traveled from various plug-in EVs, according to the commission.

Also receiving funding are efforts to bring EV chargers to multi-unit dwellings in Los Angeles County ($125,181), EV education and training in the Bay Area ($170,324), signage and map tools for EV chargers in Palm Springs ($57,500), and an ombudsman to ease permitting of hydrogen refueling stations and EV charging stations ($300,000).
