No matter what fuel powers a vehicle, CALSTART and its members are working to make it cleaner, less carbon-intensive and more economically viable. As a unique “big tent” organization, we convene fuel producers, fleets and stakeholders from every corner of the clean transportation technology industry. There are several paths to lower-carbon fuels, and CALSTART’s Fuels and Infrastructure Initiative champions all of them.
CALSTART is at the center of clean fuel innovation: from working with members to secure $1 billion in utility proposals for commercial electric-vehicle infrastructure, to amplifying industry support for California’s Low Carbon Fuels Standard, to hosting the Clean Low Carbon Fuels Summit.
The Fuels and Infrastructure Initiative uses three Activity strategies to drive its outcomes:
- Engaging in research and policy development work to define the rates and infrastructure investments needed to expand clean fuel use.
- Teaming with fleets, manufacturers and governments to identify the fuel and deployment location needs of facilities, cities and critical clean corridors.
- Evaluating the cost, performance, best practices and business case of clean, low carbon fuels and infrastructure to support broader adoption.
