Public Workshop to Discuss Proposed Reporting Requirements for Larger Companies and Fleets as Part of the Advanced Clean Trucks Regulation

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to participate in the Advanced Clean Trucks regulation workshop meeting.  The meeting will focus on a proposed reporting requirement for large companies that contract to move freight or other products and for large fleets that operate trucks locally or regionally.  The information will support efforts to accelerate the use of zero emission trucks and buses in California where suitable.

The workshop will be held at the following time and place:

DATE:                    Thursday, June 20, 2019

TIME:                     10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (PST)

PLACE:                  CalEPA Headquarters

                               Coastal Hearing Room

                               1001 I Street

                               Sacramento, California 95812

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 meeting will also be available online for those unable to attend at the CalEPA website.


At this meeting, staff will be discussing a proposed reporting requirement for the purpose of developing future regulations requiring the use of zero emission vehicles.  Large companies including retailers, wholesalers, manufacturers and government agencies may be required to report information about whether they contract for pick-up and delivery services, ship freight, or transport employees by shuttle.  Staff will also be seeking feedback from truck owners on what information is needed to determine whether existing zero emission trucks and buses are suitable to replace existing vehicles while meeting the fleet’s daily needs.

Through this process, CARB staff is seeking to work in partnership with manufacturers, fleet owners, and other interested stakeholders to identify the most effective strategies to accelerate the deployment of zero-emission technologies where they are suitable from now through 2030.  The proposal will contribute towards the goal of achieving zero-emission pick-up and delivery services in urban areas by 2040.  This effort is part of a broader strategy to support the transformation to a more efficient, economically competitive, and less polluting freight transport system.

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.
