Sustainable Fleets Accreditation Program: www.sustainablefleets.org
This new program defines clearly what it means to be a sustainable fleet by setting objective, meaningful standards and guidelines to achieve. Designed by fleets, for fleets, CALSTART tapped the collective resources, experience, and expertise of veteran fleet managers, as well as the organization NAFA, to establish the official standard for being a sustainable fleet. CALSTART partnered with NAFA which provides the data collection and calculation tools used to justify tier levels of the participants.
Charge to Work NY: www.ChargetoWorkNY.com
With support from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), CALSTART leads Charge to Work NY, an innovative electric vehicle workplace charging program for the greater New York City area. This program, a collaboration with ChargePoint, the New York City Department of Transportation, Empire Clean Cities, and Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM), facilitates uptake of EV charging stations at NYC-area workplaces to boost EV adoption throughout the region.
Drive Clean Chicago: www.DriveCleanChicago.com
Drive Clean Chicago provides point-of-sale voucher incentives for electric and hybrid-electric trucks and buses in the six-county metro Chicago region. CALSTART administers Drive Clean Chicago on behalf of the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT).
Global Commercial Drive to Zero Program: GlobalDrive2Zero.org
The Global Commercial Drive to Zero Program was designed to enable and accelerate the growth of the global zero-emission medium- and heavy-duty vehicle sector. Progress in this sector is critical for countries to achieve the greenhouse gas emissions targets established under the Paris Accord. Outside of the United States, particularly in China, India, Europe, Canada, and Mexico, emission reductions from this sector will have a significant positive impact as commercial vehicles represent a large percentage of the total transportation market.
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) in partnership with CALSTART launched the Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) and Low NOx Engine Incentives to accelerate the purchase of cleaner, more efficient trucks and buses in California.
In partnership with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), and the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT), CALSTART administers the New York Truck Voucher Incentive Program (NYT-VIP), which provides point-of-sale discounts for fleets purchasing an all-electric, hybrid, or compressed natural gas bus, truck, or van. For more information or to see what vehicles and vendors are eligible for voucher projects, visit our website.
San Joaquin Valley Clean Transportation Center: www.SJVCleanTransportation.org
With funding from the California Energy Commission, CALSTART opened the San Joaquin Valley Clean Transportation Center. The Center’s goal is to accelerate the use of clean vehicles and fuels and help the region more quickly meet its air quality targets.
The Shared Electric Vehicle Employer Demonstrator (SEED) Program is a joint project between LA Metro, Pasadena Department of Transportation, and CALSTART designed to increase the education, acceptance, and adoption of EVs and workplace charging in the City of Pasadena. Through the program, Pasadena employees take part in free extended trials with electric vehicles and use the workplace as their primary charging source. This experience helps remove stigmas related to EVs and promotes the use of EVs and workplace charging.
Commercial airports are sources of high levels of economic activity and emissions. This project worked to reduce f air pollution at airports from aviation, and ground activities on the airside (ground support equipment, airfield operations, aircraft fueling, emergency operations, etc.) and on the landside (taxis, shuttles, parking operations, passenger pick-up/drop-off, cargo delivery, etc.).
