Grant to a California public or private entity for activities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality. Funding is intended to support the transition to electric heavy-duty work vehicles. Eligible activities include applied research and development and technology demonstration and deployment.

The purpose of this solicitation is to fund applied research and development (AR&D) and technology demonstration and deployment (TD&D) activities through the creation of a Research Hub for Electric Technologies in Truck Applications. The research hub will engage stakeholders to advance high power charging systems and to plan, design, and deploy innovative corridor charging strategies that extend the range and increase the operational flexibility of battery electric trucks. This solicitation supports the following 2018-2020 EPIC Triennial Investment Plan initiatives: 2.3.1 (TD&D) “Development of Customer’s Business Proposition to Accelerate Integrated Distributed Storage Market”; and 3.2.1 (AR&D) “Grid-Friendly PEV Mobility”.

The purpose of this solicitation is to create a California research hub to facilitate and accelerate the transformative electrification of California’s heavy-duty vehicle market in a targeted geographic area. The project will be completed in two phases, with Phase 2 funding contingent upon project performance in Phase 1, California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approval of future EPIC investment plans and Legislative budget authorization, further environmental review, and approval of Phase 2 by the Energy Commission at a Business Meeting.
