2022 IN REVIEW
As we head into an ambitious 2023, we want to celebrate CALSTART’s 2022 accomplishments with you.
CALSTART has had many auspicious moments in our 30-year history, but few years rival 2022 for successes across our programs and initiatives in impact, awards, and policy. Our team worked hard to produce wins on multiple fronts, including issuing a landmark Zeroing in on Zero-Emission Trucks (ZET) report; staging ZET Expos; organizing Electric School Bus Network Working Groups; securing successful project proposals and awards from regional, federal, and global agencies; and, capping it all off, seeing the Biden Administration sign the Global Memorandum of Understanding (Global MOU) on Zero-Emission Medium- and Heavy-Duty Vehicles.
In 2022, CALSTART expanded as an organization on several fronts to support this explosion of work around the transition to zero-emission transportation: we added 92 new member organizations and more than 50 new team members (FY22); increased our administration of funding in California for zero-emission vehicles; grew federal funding for low-carbon transportation; and accelerated the international effort to deploy zero-emission commercial vehicles with 12 new signatories to the Global MOU, co-led by CALSTART and the government of the Netherlands.
