Update - Evening Session Date Change for Public Workshop to Discuss the Proposed Advanced Clean Fleets Regulation

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to participate in a workshop for the proposed Advanced Clean Fleets regulation.  This regulation is focused on developing strategies to ensure that the cleanest vehicles are deployed by government, business, and other entities in California to meet their transportation needs. This effort is part of a comprehensive strategy to achieve a zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) 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.  

This workshop will be presented twice using two identical GoToWebinar sessions as indicated below.  The identical sessions are being offered for stakeholders who are unable to attend either session.  You must newly register to attend the March 2, 2021 evening meeting.

Date:                 March 2, 2021 (Evening session date changed)
Time:                 5:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Location:           GoToWebinar

Interested parties must register in order to participate.

Meeting materials will be made available in advance of the workshop on the Advanced Clean Fleets Meetings & Events website.  Please review meeting materials and be prepared to provide feedback at the meeting.

More Information

The purpose of the workshop is to provide an overview of the regulation's scope and solicit stakeholder feedback on the proposed strategy as well as a discussion of alternative concepts.  The workshop will include a discussion on the proposed schedule and requirements for the following:

  • Public fleets​ (Local and State)
  • Drayage trucks
  • Private and federal fleets​
  • Outsourcing for zero-emission of transportation services

Informal public comments on the workshop or content may be submitted using a comment submittal form.

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).  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. 

Environmental Analysis

At the workshop, staff will also provide an overview of CARB’s process for preparing the environmental analysis (EA) and its content. Staff welcomes public input at the workshop on the appropriate scope and content of the EA at the beginning of our process, including the reasonably foreseeable methods of compliance with the proposal, the potential significant adverse impacts associated with the methods of compliance, potential feasible mitigation measures, and feasible alternatives to the proposal that could reduce or eliminate any significant adverse impacts. A draft of the EA will be released for public review and comment later this year.
