Advanced Clean Fleets Workgroup Meetings on Costs and Drayage Trucks

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to participate in two public workgroup meetings for the proposed Advanced Clean Fleets regulation.  The first workgroup meeting will be on the cost methodology for the regulation, while the second workgroup meeting will focus on how to transition drayage trucks to zero-emissions.  Both workgroup meetings will take place on the same day:

DATE:                        Wednesday, December 9, 2020
TIME:                         9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (PST) for Cost Workgroup
                                   1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (PST) for Drayage Workgroup
LOCATION:               GoToWebinar

Interested parties must register to participate in one or both of the meetings.


The Cost Workgroup meeting will discuss the cost analysis and methodology for the Advanced Clean Fleets regulation including key assumptions and data sources for a wide range of trucks and buses.  The drayage workgroup meeting will discuss how to transition to zero emissions, baseline population and emissions, demonstration projects, and funding opportunities.  These meetings are a part of California’s holistic plan to address challenging Federal air quality mandates, to protect the public health of all Californians, and to meet sustainability goals.  Meeting materials will be made available in advance of the workgroup meetings at Advanced Clean Fleets.  Please review meeting materials and be prepared to provide feedback at the meeting.


This regulation is part of a comprehensive strategy to achieve a zero-emission truck and bus fleet by 2045 everywhere feasible and significantly earlier for certain market segments such as last mile delivery, public fleets, and drayage applications. 

Achieving California’s long-term air quality, climate, and public health goals will require a transition from the conventional combustion technologies to zero-emission everywhere feasible and near-zero-emission powered by clean, low-carbon renewable fuels everywhere else.  Promoting the development and use of zero-emission trucks will contribute to the goals set in the Sustainable Freight Action Plan and 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), and SB 32 (Pavley, Chapter 249, Statutes of 2016) and is consistent with Executive Order N-79-20 signed by Governor Gavin Newsom on September 23, 2020.  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.
