Virtual Workgroup to Discuss the Public Fleet Requirements of the Advanced Clean Fleets Regulation

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to participate in a virtual workgroup meeting focused on the public fleet requirements of the proposed Advanced Clean Fleets (ACF) regulation. This meeting will continue the discussion on topics raised by public fleet stakeholders during the September 9, 2021 workshop. Workgroup meetings focused on other topics are being planned.

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

This Public Fleet workgroup meeting will be held via Zoom at the following date and time. Interested parties must register to participate. This meeting will be recorded.

Date:                 October 6, 2021
Time:                 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (Pacific Time)
Location:           Zoom


Draft rulemaking language is available on the Advanced Clean Fleets Meetings & Events website. The informal public comment period will be extended through October 29, 2021, and comments may be submitted using the comment submittal form. Informal comments already submitted can be viewed on the Advanced Clean Fleets comment log.

Several other workgroup meetings are being planned with focused topic areas including: high priority fleets, small fleets, zero-emission vehicle fueling infrastructure, and on the emissions inventory.


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 by the Governor’s Executive Order N-79-20 and 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 freight activity, and efficiency of transportation systems in California.
