Moving toward a zero-emission transportation future

The California Energy Commission’s Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program (ARFVTP) invests up to $100 million annually to support advancements in alternative and renewable fuels and advanced vehicle technologies.

This site showcases projects that use ARFVTP funds to help California reach its greenhouse gas emissions goals, improve air quality, reduce dependence on petroleum, and promote economic development. These projects range from the conversion of curbside waste into biofuel to the installation of the fueling/charging infrastructure that supports expansion of vehicles using alternative and renewable fuels.
