***Correction*** Public Workgroup Meeting to Discuss Information Needed to Support the Advanced Clean Trucks Regulation

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to participate in a public workgroup meeting relating to zero-emission trucks and the Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) proposal.  The ACT proposal would require manufacturers to sell zero emission trucks as a percentage of sales in California and for certain fleets to report information that would be used to develop future fleet requirements to phase-in zero emission trucks and buses.  At this meeting, staff plan to continue the discussion on the zero emission truck and bus market segment analysis, on the assumptions and methodology on estimating the total cost of ownership for fleets, and potential barriers to charging or hydrogen fueling infrastructure.

The workgroup meeting will be held at the following time and place:

DATE:                     Monday, February 25, 2018

TIME:                     10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (PST)

PLACE:                  Cal/EPA Headquarters Building

                               Sierra Hearing Room

                               1001 I Street, Sacramento, California 95814

Meeting materials will be made available in advance of the workgroup meeting on the program webpage.  Please review meeting materials and be prepared to provide feedback at the meeting.  This workgroup meeting will be available via webcast for those unable to attend in person on the day of the event.



Achieving California’s long-term air quality, climate, and public health goals will require a transition from the conventional combustion technologies to zero emission technologies everywhere feasible and near-zero emission powered by clean, low-carbon renewable fuels everywhere else.  Promoting the development and use of zero emission cars and trucks will help achieve emission reductions as outlined in the State Implementation Plan, Senate Bill (SB) 350 (de León, Chapter 547, Statutes of 2015), Assembly Bill 32 (Nuñez, Chapter 488, Statutes of 2006), SB 32 (Pavley, Chapter 249, Statutes of 2016), and a Governor Brown directive to CARB to evaluate light and heavy duty electric vehicle fleet requirements (issued August 1, 2018).  This effort is part of a broader strategy to increase clean, affordable transportation options such as zero emission technologies, innovative methods to improve goods movement, and efficiency of transportation systems in California.
